Thank you Triff,

Sorry you lost your dog last year.

The vets said 1-2 months if not treated but may get 1-2 years if treated. So he is on a daily liquid chemo I give him each morning. Weight has been an issue as was loosing before diagnosed, so I was not over surprised when found on U/S. He has good days and he has bad days. local vet says with all his other issues is not overly optimistic. . He has seizure disorder and has is getting them more often even though on toxic levels of the meds, He has vascular liver disease, so vet says it will be a matter of what kills him first, the cancer, chemo side effects on liver or seizure that he does not survive, or he stops eating or taking meds. Is on appetite stimulant which helps a lot.

Sorry to hear you are sicker, maybe they will find  a med that will help you.

Take care and sending you good vibes........sue

Just wondering how things are going now Sue with your wee furchild?  I know its  amazing what they can do and dogs can be so stoic.

I have actually gone down a bit more and have permission to use my 02 when I need it as well as nighttime.I do have a new house to go to as long as I can keep strong and not overdo the actual packing and stuff.It will be nice to have double glazing and heatpump as long as no power outages things will be fine.I will be closer and hope its easier for my helpers to come.

Your new place looks very nice, Hope you can get moved and enjoy it. Sorry you are having to use more oxygen now.

Skippy is about the same. We will not know if it is working until net ultrasound on April 2nd. So daily chemo continues until at least then.

We are ready for 10 - 18 inches of snow today and tomorrow.
