Eileen, we hope the oncologist visit helps put your mind at ease. Remember, there are no right or wrong answers, just the ones that are right for you and Faye Raye. The truth is, there are no guarantees about anything no matter what kind of treatments we have. Chemo or no chemo, holistic or traditional, nobody can ever predict who will beat the odds.

I was a front leg amputee with osteosarcoma. I was given four months to live and did not have chemo. Well, I beat the odds and made it to 17  months post amputation before lung mets showed up. After that, I still beat the odds and made it to 2 years post amputation before the cancer got the best of me. So you see, there's no predicting who will do best, and no guarantees.

Do you best to make your decisions as thoughtfully and calmly as you can while under the guidance of a trusted vet and you can't go wrong. No matter what happens at least you will be able to say that you made the best decisions you could with the information you had at the time.

Good luck tomorrow.  Remember to jot down your questions ahead of time to help you organize your thoughts and concerns.
