Tonight a got a new punch on my “man card.” Despite being a bit of a tinkerer, car repair isn’t something I’ve had too much experience in. I change my own oil and rotate my tires, I’ve installed a couple of car stereos, and I wired up my truck with all the relays and fuses […]
Tang’s recovery is still going well. We thought you might enjoy seeing how he gets around on three legs, so we took a few short videos. He hasn’t seemed to slow down any! Check out the videos.
In June of 2006, our cat Tang was diagnosed with Vaccine-Associated Sarcoma, a really nasty cancer caused by a vaccine he received. The tumor formed on his right rear leg (where the vaccine was administered), so the best chance to save him was to amputate the leg. A year later, he’s still doing great! Here […]
Last week our boss was good enough to give the us afternoon off to celebrate recent project successes. We had a picnic lunch and played 9 holes of golf at the local par 3 course. Two thirds of us had never played before, but most everyone picked it up pretty quickly. We played best-ball, so […]
I don’t like to stay late at work on a regular basis. If I stay late, that’s less time I get to see Evan before bed time, and if I stay too late I don’t get to see him at all. As a result, when I need to work extra hours, I save them up […]
We took a camping trip this past weekend, and arranged for family to come check in on Tang. We kept him caged up still so he wouldn’t hurt himself while we were gone. Upon returning, I hurried back to see him. Something changed while we were gone – he became himself again. That shine was […]
We got the results of Tang’s biopsy today, and the results were actually pretty good. The biopsy did determine that the cancer was fibrosarcoma as they thought. They gave his prognosis as “favorable” provided that the cancer had not previously metastatisized and that the tumor had been completely removed. Test results show that both of […]
I posted a couple of small video clips we took of Evan recently. Two are from the trip to the Children’s Museum and one is from swimming. Take a look on the video page. Sorry if you get a couple of “ActiveX” warnings.
After a lot of research and consulting with the vets, we decided the best thing to do for Tang was to have them amputate his leg as they suggested. His surgery was yesterday and he got to come home today. We’ve got him in a large enclosure in the bedroom right now, since we’re supposed […]
Over the weekend, we put together an impromptu softball game. A number of my coworkers from India expressed an interest in learning how to play baseball, so what better way to learn than to try it. About 8 people showed up, including my brother, his fiance, Vijay, Shankar, Sundar and a few of their friends. […]
