Re: Damascena and Andrea


Take her to the beach, Andrea. Dogs love the beach--even more than Northern tourists do. We have dog beaches here. Ms. Fatma, who has been to one with a friend who has a dog, says it's the best show in town.

Just wanted to say thanks everyone for the prayers, well wishes, and
comfort. The prednisone is working, swelling is going down, but her abdomen
is still very tight. She of course feels like she can run about at will and
do whatever since she feels so much better. I'm letting her do what she
wants. When we both are a bit better, I want to do some photos and maybe
take her on a couple of slow walks. I would love to let her tear down the
beach one more time but I don't think that's a good idea, due to her
arthritis.


I also am on prednisone, have a massive throat infection, not Mono or Strep,
something else. So I'm on antibiotics, and pred, out of work for at least 48
hours or until the fever breaks. Yay me. But it gives me a couple of days
all day to be with her. Mark ( my Vet) said she may hang on for 1-2 months.
I think I'll know when it's time.


Thanks again all! I know it's just the way my life is going right now and
it's just one of those times. Nothing to be done but deal with it.


Germy hugs and kisses to you all!

Oh Andrea-
I'm so sorry, you are doing the same thing I am with my oldest cat- she's
been on prednisone for 3 months now- some days are good, others not. She
doesn't seem uncomfortable, but I also know at some point it will stop
"working" (aka stalling the inevitable). I hope you get as much time as
I
have to say your goodbyes.

Theresa

This seems to be this time of year y'all. My beloved Damascena, my boxer
has
been slowly failing. She began some massive swelling in her back legs on
Friday. My Vet met me at his office this morning, and after examining her
he
thinks she has lymphoma, or if not, something worse. He's got her on
prednisone so reduce the welling, and if it's not lymphoma she won't
respond
to the prednisone at all. This is basically a tactic to give me a little
time
to get used to the idea that she won't be here, and to make her
comfortable.
I
refuse to put her through any chemo treatments, etc. So, 1-2 months, or
maybe
just a few days if she doesn't respond. Even if she does, eventually she
won't
respond to the pred at all.


The funny thing is, she's as happy as she can be, fairly comfortable, and
wants to play. I'm the one who's a mess. Can't seem to stop crying for
more
than a few minutes at a time. I'm just going to spend as much time with
her
as
I can. Thanks for listening. She's almost 11 and I knew this would happen
someday, just wish it wasn't so soon, and happening so fast.
