I feel like I have just been hit by a train head on. I don't think things could get much worse around here. Yuki is having great difficulty moving around these days and every day is a struggle for him at 15 years of age, Mia is in heart failure, and now Chester's biopsy report came back with the worst possible diagnosis.

Chester has cancer. A form of Epitheliotropic Lymphoma. Prognosis is very poor, usually only months after diagnosis.

Next step will be to start and keep him on prednisone and hope we can further slow down the progression. I'm living in a nightmare and I can't wake up.

Today's results were such a shock. I don't know what I was expecting but it certainly wasn't this.

All I can hope for is time. Every dog is different and maybe he will be one of the ones who surpass expectations. The one thing we have going for us is the fact that it doesn't seem to be bothering him right now. Maybe that is a great sign and medications will slow it down or put it in remission.

Mommy feels so bad for you. I had cancer as well as cardiomyopathy. Plus arthur ritis cause I was 12 an overweight. Mommy kept me out of pain using amitryptiline. Brand name Elavil. I even managed to play tug of war keep away.

You're in our prayers. I only been on the bridge less than 4 months. I took two breaths at home and WHAM here I was running and swimming in the milk and honey lake.
