Ok, a quick update here because we could really use a break and some positive thoughts. 

I took Manni off all meds apart from a new pain med. he was having diarrhea from one or all of the other meds so I was happy to do that     . Yesterday he started throwing up, no doubt because of the new pain meds. I withheld food for the day but also the meds because Manni was really visibly sick. 

Being and feeling sick is not an option for him these last few days/weeks but neither is not giving anything for the pain. 

My unbelievable vet opened her practice for me today -a Sunday- and agreed to give me new tummy meds but especially the same pain meds only in liquid form for me to administer via injection to hopefully lessen the effect on the stomach. 

All I want at this point is for Manni to have a few more good days. Without being in pain and without being sick. So please people: a few good thoughts here, or as Michelle always says: juju. 

Thanks

tina & Manni

Manni was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Dec '15 and immediately had his right front leg amputated, followed by 5 rounds of chemo. Manni's real name is Manfred and he turns 10 on Jan 28 2017. So far we are mets-free...

Sending as much positive juju your way as possible. I thought of you guys while I was out at the barn today. Our thoughts are with you and Manni; I hope that you can have some peaceful moments these next few days. You are being an awesome advocate for your boy (as always), focusing on his happiness and comfort.

A few? You've got a ZILLION from all of us Tina. Your vet is truly amazing, what a kind thing to help out on a Sunday. I'm hoping with all I've got that the pain medication is helping him feel better and his stomach is settling down. 

I know already know how to Be More Dog so keep on soaking up Manni's love and devotion as you have been, and spoiling that boy rotten. He's no doubt feeling the love of his mama right now. We send our love too. 

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Sugar bun heart

You and Manni have ALL of mine and Angel Eurydice's pawsitive energy, ALL we can master !

Hoping madly the new medicine will kick in and act quickly and make Manni feel Manni again !

How about the canabis pills ? Is that an option at all?

I am really touched by how your vet opened just for him, Manni is in such good hands and that means the world at this point, for both of you ...

Thinking about you both every day, every day, every day heart and wishing hard for lots of good days and weeks and more weeks to come!

Sorry for not praying but I've personally done all of that with Kinky to no avail so I'm done with praying ...

I HOPE HARD instead for LOTS of wonderful days and weeks ahead for you and gorgeous Manni heart

Stay strong sweet friend, I am right there with you and love you and gorgeous cutie pie Manni to bits heart

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

oh Tina, I'm so, so sorry. Stupid poopicon_pngFU disease. I had to read the initial post several times before I could begin to wrap my brain around it all and kept staring at the CT picture.

I hope Manni's tummy is better with the new meds.

Sending you and Manni all the positive thoughts and juju I can muster. I wish I could cuddle you both.

Wishing you both bunches of quality time and spoiling! We're all here for you - and holding you both in our hearts.

Love

Update, day three of injections. 

No more throwing up at least and no diarrhea. So that's good. He's eating, too, although not quite as well as he always did. The injections are the same stuff that we had in pill form before but I am still somewhat trying to figure out the right dose for Manni as digesting the stuff is slightly different than getting it via syringe. I don't think he's pain-free, otherwise he'd be moving more willingly and I managed to make a lump today with the syringe...ooops😳

He's getting CBD oil as of today, might help, hopefully won't hurt. Also some slippery elm for the tummy -same reasoning. 

We went for ice cream this morning (ok, I had coffee) and we're planning a trip to the beach tomorrow. Y'all know what this means: I am planning days, not weeks. My vet is gone for the weekend so Manni had better hang in there until next week at least. 

The thing about having one of the 'tough dogs', the street mutts, is that they just do not show any pain. Manni has never cried out in his entire life, apart from during the phantom pain period. He pooped on an electric fence once 😊 and while he wouldn't go near the things again he didn't cry out. He wasliterally running around with a torn ligament for 6 months before I knew anything was wrong, he didn't show any signs for the osteo until he wouldn't use his leg at all. His toughness has always been part of his character but these days it's making things harder and sort of coming back to haunt me. 

Since the day of his amputation I made sure I tell him 'I love you' every single day. I added one more sentence just now: 'please, please let me know when it's time'. 

It would be nice of him to listen just this once in his life.

I used to beg Nitro to let me know when it was time....he also was s very stoic dog and never showed pain. At the end, he showed me he was tired, and I knew. Praying Manni will let you know. Hugs

Well that's excellent news that his tummy has settled and that he can enjoy an ice cream. A trip to the beach sounds perfect. I love the way you are squeezing the joy out of every precious moment. 

I know what you mean about tough dogs. I have one. You cannot help but admire them but it certainly adds to the stress at a time like this. You are very in tune with him though, Tina and the difference with the first osteo and the ligament tear is that then you had no idea there was anything going on. This time, you know and you are totally focused on it. 'Watching him like a hawk' as you said before. You will not be easy to fool. I think you will know and, as Paula says, it may be more a question of him showing you that he's tired than of showing pain specifically.

He knows you love him. We can never hear those words too often, of course, but my goodness, Tina, he knows.
