Our journey starts with a single step on three legs

Freya at her viewing posts

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 12:03 am on Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!I took this photo of Freya at the top of her northern viewing post tonight. ¬†As you can see, a collection of boxes (and yes, that is a skull mask – it’s one of my halloween decoration boxes) and a cat scratching post that helps her […]

Two months after amputation

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 9:11 pm on Thursday, February 28, 2013

It has been such a journey since mid November 2012 when I first found Freya had a large¬†suspicious lump on her left rear hock. It was as if I entered a dark tunnel that compressed my world and it was all I could do to make it from day to day. Then the operation and […]

Happy 2 week Ampuversary Freya (and two days)

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 10:24 pm on Saturday, January 5, 2013

It really doesn’t seem like a fortnight since Freya had her leg amputated – but it certainly has been, and two days extra even. It has been going so well that I even had a night away on New Years Eve, although I was a bit anxious I must admit. I left Freya in the […]

Day 10 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 11:11 pm on Sunday, December 30, 2012

Well, ten days after amputation. I had a little scare this afternoon when I looked at Freya’s incision and there was a thin piece of what looked like dental floss sticking out from the middle of the incision by about a centimetre. Eek. It looked dried and not covered with any gunky stuff, but it […]

Day 9 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 4:18 pm on Sunday, December 30, 2012

Another day with not much to report. I have noted that Freya seems not to be wanting to jump up to her cat chair, and that may be a matter of confidence? Not sure, but will observe. Mostly today (for Freya) was lying on the couch, with the occasional hop over to the food bowl. […]

Day 8 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 11:48 pm on Friday, December 28, 2012

Again another day post amputation has passed. Today I made an effort to be around for the whole day (I’ve been out and about the past two days) to see how Freya is coping and what she is getting up too. Sleeping appears to be the order of the day. I did notice she is […]

Day 7 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 12:10 am on Friday, December 28, 2012

Well, there is not a lot to report today. Her last dose of antibiotics was this morning and fingers crossed we won’t need any more. And she hasn’t had pain medication for a few days now and seems to be doing very well in that regard. I had another ‘normal’ moment when I went to […]

Excellent website and messageboard

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 1:24 am on Thursday, December 27, 2012

Tonight I was reviewing some of the earlier sites I bookmarked in that feverish time of research we all go through when we are desperately trying to find the website that will tell us it is all a dream. There is a great site called Archie Cat and the message board there is fantastic with […]

Day 6 AA – Boxing Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 10:24 pm on Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Well, Freya started the night on the bed and then actually in the bed under the sheets with me (which is something she does quite often but not since the operation) and it was so normal! Then she got jack of that (pretty much because I dared move … move I tell you!! How dare […]
