Bad day!

Monday, September 19, 2011

I have had bad days before but this one takes the prize so i may not get to posting as much. Morgan is at the vet clinic with a fever of over 103, hubby woke with an abscessed tooth so have to jump thru hoops to the doctor about being on a blood thinner, I woke with aches and pains and we have no driver for tomorrow's appt. to see hubby's foot surgeon but will just cancel that for now. 250 miles one way ius no treat. So, for today will just try and get thru today. I usually handle things well but everything at once?? emoticon

    I am sorry to here about Morgan. It is so hard to have you pet ill and waiting for a diagnosis . Morgan is really beautiful lab and looks very healthy and looking at you with such love in her eyes. Morgan is the black lab?

    We have a Great Pyrenees/Anatolian livestock guardian dog, Mr Anderson (AKA Andy) who will be nine in March. He has bone cancer and we have been doing everything we can to keep him with us as long as possible. He first had a 3,000 dollar surgery to repair his ACL ligament in his left hind leg. He has hip dysplasia to start with, so we really needed to stabilize that back leg to keep it from further stress given he had both. Then he had to be on leash walk only for eight to ten weeks because if he caused one of the screws to much stress it would shatter the bone and nothing could be done.

    Three weeks later his knee on his front right was looking very swollen, but hard when feeling it. It turned out he has bone cancer. So we go back up to the vet school and they gave him two doses of radiation which would ease the pain and slow the progress and give us six or more good months with him. They also put him on chemotherapy. This was back the 9th of August and all was looking good until October 9th he stopped eating. Testing showed liver enzymes sky high at just over 1,000.

    They stopped the chemo and put him on antibiotics and liver enhances, and an appetite enhancing med. Here we are having tried every dog food there is to get him to eat. It has been a long road, finally cooking for him. We finally were getting somewhere and he has gained back five of the more than ten pounds he lost. Now they want to put him back on chemo and keep him on liver enhancers and pain pills. I hate putting him back on chemo but he is doing so much better and we want him around as long as he is still happy and himself. I hope we have him through the holidays.

    You are lucky, your Morgan should and could live to be as old as 18 even more if she still has good health now. The Great Pyrenees has a 9 to10 year life span. That is true for all giant breeds. Morgan is a beautiful lab, she has a gorgeous face, head, and really kind eye. I bet she is very loyal. Her grey hair on her or his muzzle makes Morgan look wise!!

    I will keep you both in my prayers and pray she will be in good health and back to normal very soon!
