Erica, I didn't get a chance to reply to this but I was thinking about Jill yesterday. I knew you were likely freaking out all day and I wished you didn't have this bump in the road. Jill gets excellent care. Whatever her doctor suggests is very likely exactly what she needs. I hope you feel better; it sounds like Jill feels great!

Love, love, love the collage!

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14
