Category Archives: Hemangiosarcoma

I’m a new Tripawd!

Hi everyone, my name is Butchey…Butchey Hudson.  I had my amputation surgery on June 14th.  I have hemangiosarcoma, and they found a tumor in my knee joint.  At first they thought I had torn my ACL, I think that might have been a better thing than having cancer.  =(

So my Momma & my Dada had a hard time with the amputation surgery.  But now that they see I am up and moving around and just about back to my normal Butcheyness self, they are doing much better with it.  They still fuss over me all the time, and I am still wearing THIS STUPID FLIPPIN’ CONE FUNNEL THINGY on my head!!!!  They always tell me sorry when they put it on.  I just wish I could gnaw at that big itch down where my leg used to be.

So after my surgery I got a baaaad infection.  I’ve been trying to fight that and heal up so I can start my chemo treatments.  Momma and Dada hover over me looking at my big hole near my incision where the skin got nectrotic.  It is healing up nicely, but they wish it would heal faster.

Momma is typing the blog for me because I don’t have thumbs (so I can’t type).  We are learning this new WordPress thingy, so we hope we don’t mess it up.

I already have a friend here on Tripawds.  Hi Medal Maggie!!!!!  Her Momma Tracy has been very helpful and supportive of my pawrents through this whole thing.  She is very nice, Tracy I mean, but Maggie’s butt smells good, too!!  They sent me this very cool bandana, and I’m happier about it than I look in the picture!
