12/23/13 Some News (Christmas Miracle, Perhaps?)
Monday, December 23, 2013
Okay. Some news. My husband spoke with the vet today. Her blood work is in. The good news is that none of her organs are failing. The bad news is that she definitely does have Lymphoma and it's a matter of time, unfortunately. So he gave us a third option since we can't afford the chemo. We can give her Cortisol or Cortisin (something like that...) that won't extend what's left of her life, but will make her more comfortable and help her eat again. So, we sat down with Missy and told her the truth and said that it doesn't matter how we feel, it's up to her and what she wants to do. She thought for a minute, looked at my husband, looked back at me, and I felt her thinking "Let's give it a try." So, we will give it a try. And she promised to tell us whenever she changes her mind. We bought her some food that'll be easier for her to swallow and so far she's doing VERY well with it. It's still heartbreaking as hell to know, but at least we're not losing her on Christmas Eve, either.
