Another Lizzy Update........

I'm finally going to be posting my blog again. I've made a decision about Lizzy that is right for both of us and I need to move on.

So happy to be home......sunning herself!!!

She was glad to get out of the hospital!!!!

Her crazy flotation device!!!

I've never seen a cone like this......

So relaxed........
 Lizzy had her surgery and they removed a four inch tumor.......the cancer cells in other parts of her body are the problem. When I left A&M a week ago the doc told me she had 3 to 6 months to live and that I should put her on chemo. I truthfully didn't understand that, if she's terminal then why chemo. I had an appointment last week with my doc and she had an oncologist come in to look over the file and give me some advice. I had pretty much decided that chemo was a no go, but wanted to hear what they had to say. The oncologist told me Lizzy wasn't a great fit for chemo , almost every problem she's had in the last few years has had to do with her gut, she said it would probably make her sicker and I would end her life sooner.......while making her miserable. My doc just wants to monitor her every month to see how it goes. Right now Lizzy is back to being Lizzy, she's fooling around with the other dogs and being her old self. I believe I made the right decision. Have any of you been here.......curious as to what you did in a case like this.........

Lizzy Update.......

When I wrote last I thought it was over for Lizzy  this has been a terrible month, a couple of docs said she wouldn't make it through surgery but in the end I took my vet's advice and took Lizzy to the teaching hospital at Texas A&M, one of the best around. Today she had surgery and she made it through just fine......they removed a 4 inch mass off her duodenum......but looks like she might have more of them. She might have some problems over the long haul with pancreatitis and we won't know if the mass is cancerous for another 3 or 4 days. Keep good thoughts.....still very worried for my girl and I hope I haven't made things worse for her.

Super bad news.......

Lizzy.....my girl is dying. She has a horrible tumor.....the chances of her recovering from surgery are so slim. I know she is a nine year old girl......but still consider my baby. I have to make some decisions.....so unhappy that's why I haven't been online......wish me luck........

Unleashed.....

Hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th!!! Last Saturday we went to Unleashed again....they were having an adoption event....with lots of rescues, Boxers, Poodles, Basset Hounds, Kitties and us. They set it up outside and although it was hot we had a lot of fun!!! We brought the usual suspects.......

Wayne getting a big hug from Denise!!!!
Wayne and Daddy-O are just so good at shows and they really enjoy the attention!!! We had an additional dog this time that we had never met before, Deacon. Our friend , Michelle, took him right from animal control to foster....he had a broken pelvis that needed surgery....she took him to have the surgery and has been working with him ever since. He's just a puppy and the surgeon said the breaks were inflicted by whoever had him before.....I'll never get it!!!!

That's what he looked like right after surgery.......here's what he looked like last week...... He was having a great time playing with Wayne....


We also had some visitors that had come to our fundraiser.....
Angel and Zane.....

Angel getting tangled up!!!!
Angel and Zane with their Dad, Gary!!! All the dogs had a great time and we did too......hopefully we can get all these kids adopted.....they will all be going to Reliant next weekend.
If you are in the Houston area come by and say hi...we will be there Friday, Saturday and Sunday in booth 815.....
Have a wonderful evening.........

Ok......

I think this finally works now......a long time without my computer. I have a ton of pictures on my old hard drive, and that's upsetting , but we are working to get them off. For now any picture I take goes to a memory stick or stays on the camera. We had a bunch of adoptions and also unfortunately some dogs have come back. I'm going to get myself organized tonight and get some stories started tomorrow....hope all of you have been doing well , haven't been able to keep up much on my stupidphone....too slow!! Have a great evening, glad to be back!!!!!
