Lu's prognosis is not good


Recommended Posts

Lu's ultrasound revealed several swollen lymph nodes. A biopsy of the one that was reachable was cancerous. The sudden front-end lameness is likely caused by metastasizing tumors.


Lu is pretty much on borrowed time now. It's all palliative care from here on out- could be a week, could be a month. She is not comfortable, and her back end is very weak & unstable. I'll hopefully pick up another prescription tomorrow for pain.


Monday was five years that I adopted Lu. We should have had 10 years together. She's a once-in-a-lifetime dog. I am not ready to lose her, but I guess we never are.


Thanks for the mojo, everyone. I'm going to go hug my dogs.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Ben. Lots of good thoughts for you and Lu coming from CA. And no, it never is long enough, but sometimes it just seems cruelly short. :rolleyes:
