Thanks everyone. I will switch over to treatment and recovery.  I still not doing fantastic navigating through this site lol, it usually takes me a few minutes to even find the thread I started.  

She has very little activity, and her walks are about as short as they could be without being called just a potty break.  She has been taking on the very large staircase on her own, but only once in the morning, and then once again at night.  Prior to all this, she would walk a mile or so most days, and throw my slippers around the house when the mood hit.  I will look into therapy, but there only seems to be one location nearby, and they are a) really unorganized, and B) booked out pretty far.

Looks like tomorrow will be our first round of chemo.  I hope our experience is a positive as all of yours.

Thanks again internet angels smiley

Hi Scandela,

 The love of my live my rescue Cookie has just been diagnosed with bone cancer.  I am going to the cancer doctor today and am hoping she is a candidate for treatment.  She is not in much pain so I am hoping the amputation will really nip this in the bud.  I am so glad I found this site.

 Please keep me informed on how your fur baby is doing

Bless You

My Cookie has lost her appetite. She does not seem to be in too much pain   Her lungs were clear so is there a chance that the cancer is just spreading to somewhere else besides the lungs and making her sick?

Dougo1,

Sorry to hear that.  It is devastating news that’s for sure.  This site has been amazing.  This is and will be a difficult journey, but the support offered here will be helpful.  

Escher received her first round of chemo last week.  She came out of the Dr.’s office as if she just received a caffeine shot.  Her overall, activity level has decreased since the diagnosis, but overall, I don’t think I could as for more under the circumstances.  

I also recently joined the Facebook group that my old vet Dr. Becker, is heading.  It’s called “Dog Cancer Series Community.”  It is all still a bit overwhelming, but seems to be some good information there as well.

Keep us posted!

Hey Cookie’s Mom.  I did respond to your blog and there is srill one of my post “awaiting moderation”.  I’m not computer savvy at all, but I think you have to change something in your settings.

Anyway, just want to say that if Cokkie is limping, she hurts!  Dogs, especially Pitties, are very stoic and do everything possibe not to show pain!  Think abput yourself.  If you don’t feel well or something is hurting, you just don’t feel like eating.  

And YAY for clear xrays!!   I know you were consulting with a Surgeon today (I think),so hopefully you got some as wers and some clarity.

Please start a thread for  Cookie so we can follow her story and support you better.

Hugs

Hi Doug. Please hop over to this topic that has been set up for you. You can continue your discussion about Cookie there, and we help you better. 

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