So Saturday, February 9, 2013 I went on a trip to the vet, a place everyone knows and loves me and my 'sis' Kiara. It was just supposed to be a look at an ear infection I got and a new lump that felt hard on my armpit. Oh I guess it was also for some mild coughing I had had for a couple weeks. It wasn't supposed to be anything big just a quick in and out but that didn't happen. The vet felt the lump and then started feeling other places, she must've found something because she left and a few minutes later came back. She took a quick swab of my ear to see what kind of infection it was then made me lay down and sprayed some cold, strong smelling stuff on my leg before poking a needle and moving it around in what's called a lymph node I guess, that's what the vet said at least. I was a good girl and didn't even move while she did that though when she went for one of the lymph nodes on my neck I didn't stay still for that one 'cause it hurt a bunch! Luckily she got what she needed. The vet started talking about the possibility of something called lymphoma and then left to check the samples she got. When she left my girl started crying which just made me upset and start crying too. When I did that she came over and started petting me while her dad just kept saying my name, he started petting me too. When the vet came in she talked to my girl and her dad for a bit before getting a leash and taking me away. I was stuck in the vets for a couple hours so they could take x-rays of my chest and I did really good with those too, vet told my girl and her family I didn't even move or fight when they were holding me for 'em. It was a while before I got to see my girl again and this time she was with dad and her stepmom and I could tell she had been crying a lot. I went straight to her when the vet took me in the room with them and sat by her, comforting her and showing her everything was going to be okay though I didn't even know what was wrong. The vet showed them my x-rays pointing out some suspected masses inside me, one that was pushing my esophagus up a little which was the culprit of my coughing. She started going over what I had, stage 5b lymphoma, and then treatment plans. They said a bunch of stuff I don't even know like chemotherapy which everyone seemed to think wasn't really an option because of how advanced this lymphoma thing is and my age. They also said it would be too stressful and make me miserable which they obviously didn't want. Then there was something called steroids which is supposed to make me more comfortable and hopefully live a bit longer. We left soon after that and got to go to Pet Valu and get some yummy treats I had never had before, an antler and some kind of dried duck stick. My girl still seemed sad, especially when she had to leave with her mom Sunday. When she comes back hopefully she will be happier, I don't like when my girl is sad.


Seeing My Baby Girl Again

Finally the weekend came when I got to see my girl! I was so happy I kept spinning in circles and whining so she would pet me. She seemed happy when she first came then a little sad after she figured out I was losing weight, I mean you can feel my hip bones and stuff but you can't see them so that's good right? Always look on the bright side of things. The day she came was just a relaxing day 'cause it was Friday and not much we could do. My girl fed me some extra food which I ate really fast, it was just so tasty and I was really hungry thirsty too but that's because of the medication I'm taking I think. While we were outside for dinner and potty breaks it started hailing! My girl seemed to think it was funny and hurt but I didn't really notice it, just went about my business. The little pup Storm though, she went absolutely nuts, tearing around the backyard like a mad dog. The young thing even tried to get me to play but I was haaving none of that and a quick growl got her off my back. After that it was time to go inside and nothing remarkable happened, just watched T.V. while I laid by my girl and she petted me until we went to bed. I woke her up nice and early in the morning and I got extra food in my bowl again, a whole two cups plus half a can of wet food! Needless to say I didn't leave a single morsel in that bowl. When dad woke up my girl got to drive me and him to Petsmart where I got to meet some puppies (I scared one of them on accident, I guess I'm an intimidating gal even at my age ) and then got petted by nice people as well as a scrumtious treat. We went back home after that and a quick stop for some smoothies then I got to go on a walk with my young sis Kiara. We went pretty far and my girl seemed to feel bad when I was slowing down a lot but she didn't have to worry. After getting back home I just needed a quick rest on my bed to cool down then I was good as new. I got a nice treat and for the rest of the day it was relaxing again until bed time when my girl tried to feed that weird slithery thing that lives in a cage in her room. I always have to keep a close eye on that thing, it creeps me out and I don't like my girl touching it though I never do anything about it. Just lay there and watch it like a good girl. Sunday came and my girl woke up early again, fed me my big meal then we sat together until it was time for her to leave. I can't wait for her to come back again, until then I'll just have to keep watch over her room and wait patiently for her to come back.
