We brought Bacchus home last night with a pharmacy under one arm and a book size set of instructions under the other. Hub made up a chart this morning so we don't miss a dose. We go back Tuesday for follow up testing and adjustment of his meds as necessary. We're still a bit stunned but coping.
Bacchus seems a bit stunned too though the staff at WSU fell in love with him and spoiled him even more than we have - if that's possible. I knew that would happen. What's not to love about that big old furry face! Plus the sweetest disposition a Saint could have.
If he responds well to the drugs he could have up to a year. He could be gone when I look out the office door to see if he wants to come in. We have no idea. But we'll give it all we've got.
As Hub said to me after the cardiologist told us the time frames, "At least now you're prepared." And so I am. He'll let us know when it's time.
To all of you who responded with good wishes on yesterday's post, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have no idea how much it has meant.
It's time now to get things in order. Get the house picked up and the emotions settled down. We've already scoped out the new routine. I've been given what I had hoped for; some time. It will be well spent.
