I'm such a great believer in positive thinking, so thank you to everyone who has sent positive thoughts Archie's way. We've done it!
Archie isn't great at taking tablets, so I have to push it to the back of his throat and hope for the best. This morning didn't go my way. He bit in to his antibiotic, causing the powder inside the capsule to spill all over the floor.
It's important to finish the whole course of antibiotics, so I had to ring the vet and ask for another tablet in order to complete the course. I thought that as I would be visiting the surgery anyway, she could take a look at Archie and let me know how he's going on.
I'm absolutely delighted to tell you that it isn't a tumour. It's a really, really bad infection. So bad in fact that he needs an extra week on antibiotics and anti inflammatories, but we can live with that rather than the alternative.
I can't tell you all how much I appreciate the comments, emails, prayers and positive thoughts which have been winging our way this week. I truly believe that every thought sent our way has helped, so thank you all so very, very much.
Archie has been a really poorly doggy all week, but he seems to have turned the corner today. He's been a cheeky chappy, 90% back to what he's usually like, wanting lots of love, kisses and of course, food! We're on the road to recovery.
