Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
Thank you to everyone for the posts. It makes me so happy to share my good news since I was always nervous Nelly prior to and after her amp. We have an appointment this Thursday at 3:30 to see what are options may be. Bailey didn't do so well with the surgery and just started eating and keeping food down this past Sunday. Her surgery was the 7th of February. Her last xray was on 2/16 when they thought she had fluids in her lungs. So I'm on the fence... sigh...
But so enjoying my Bailey back.
HUGS and HIGH PAWS!!!

Joan and Lily
Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
