Lu's prognosis is not good

Recommended Posts

Lu's ultrasound revealed several swollen lymph nodes. A biopsy of the one that was reachable was cancerous. The sudden front-end lameness is likely caused by metastasizing tumors.

 

Lu is pretty much on borrowed time now. It's all palliative care from here on out- could be a week, could be a month. She is not comfortable, and her back end is very weak & unstable. I'll hopefully pick up another prescription tomorrow for pain.

 

Monday was five years that I adopted Lu. We should have had 10 years together. She's a once-in-a-lifetime dog. I am not ready to lose her, but I guess we never are.

 

Thanks for the mojo, everyone. I'm going to go hug my dogs.

Guess we have to count the short time we have as the best blessings we could recieve. I'm sorry about the news and hope she makes it a while longer so you can have a bit more quality time together.

We all send hugs and kisses!! So sorry to hear about Lu. Some dogs are meant to be here for a short time but they leave a lasting impression on your heart.

 

Rainey, Tess and Nan send kisses to Lu.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Ben. Spoil the heck out of her, and try to take care of yourself, too.

Be at peace knowing that you have given her the best 5 years she could have hoped for.

 

Your pack is in our thoughts.

Continue giving her the love she deserves, take care of yourself also, and know you gave her the best life she could have wished for. God bless you both.

Ben, I'm so very sorry. *&*& cancer! I hope you find a combination of meds that will keep Lu comfortable and give you a little more time together.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Ben. Lots of good thoughts for you and Lu coming from CA. And no, it never is long enough, but sometimes it just seems cruelly short. :rolleyes:
