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......|
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.........
