Dang I’m so sorry to hear that. Ginger is such a strong girl though, and sure she’s been through a lot but my guess is that her super duper immune system will help her overcome this next hurdle.
At least you caught it now, and you acted quickly on a plan. You have options, and a backup plan just in case. You are ready for anything and there’s a lot of peace of mind that it will buy. No, it’s not easy to be in the middle of a situation like this, but all the steps you have taken so far are lining you up mentally and emotionally to be strong and hopeful for your girl. She really couldn’t ask for better humans.
Like Sally mentioned, we got lots more quality time with Jerry after we discovered mets, and many others have too. It’s all just a big crapshoot, those prognoses are educated guesses but they don’t take into account Ginger’s health and amazing ability to bounce back. Stay pawsitive and remember she is her own girl, with her own story.
We are sending lots of pawsitivity that she has no side effects from the carbo. Let us know how she’s doing OK? (((hugs)))
