Forgot, vet said her weight (7 3/4#) is stable from last visit.
Here's a picture from yesterday's Outside time.
Got a nice closeup of her pretty eyes.
Cautious unhappy again...looks like the growth has returned these 5 weeks after the 2-week antibiotic shot and 4 1/2 weeks after the 2-week steroid shot.
Verdict of today's visit...it IS a sarcoma.
From what I have read, with palliative care, Miss Blue has from 3 - 6 months from diagnosis.
We will spoil her little soft, buzzy self for as long as she is having good quality of life.
Still hoping Doc is wrong.
I'm so sorry for what you & yours are going through. I'm glad Miss Blue has you and Anita & the boys. Spoil away!
The ear cream seems to be maintaining the effect of the slow release steroid and antibiotic shots Blue got about 3 weeks ago. She is still drooling, BUT it is not discolored and a little lower amount.
She seems to be eating and drinking enough to keep her weight steady. Blue has plenty of energy to do what she wants to do, including Outside Time and keeping the boys in line.
We've had Outside Time most every day when it has not been raining. Blue put her own time limit and I usually have to carry Buff into the house.
Brought Miss Blue in today for another antibiotic shot, have a concern about secondary infection. She does tolerate Convenia well.
As I'm typing, she's eating.
Since last time, Blue has gained 5 ounces, back up to 7 pounds 11 ounces.
The tumor appears to have come back. The lump under her chin is larger. Blue is not in any obvious pain. We'll watch over the weekend as both Anita and I are home. We haz a sad.
Have an appointment for 4 PM with the vet.
I think Blue knows it is time... :-(
