Linda, how's Sasha?

I'm just curious to find out, how's Sasha. You're thread was the first one I've read, because I was worried about my shih-tzu dog, I joined pets.ca and I saw yours that said drastic weight lost. I have an appointment today at the vet at 3:45 for my shih-tzu Roo. Remember she was throwing up and losing weight, we switched her to wet food about a month ago. She seem like she was doing better, we were patient and hoping she would gain her weight back, but this weekend she's not doing well at all and she started throwing up again, not as much as before when it first started but still it worries me. So hopefully the other vet won't refuse to check her thyroid or find out what's wrong with her, because it's so sad to see her go down this fast. She's always had so much energy.

I saw the vet yesterday and he's positive that her weight lost has nothing to do with her thyroid, he suspect that she has cancer in her stomach. It might be a tumor in the intestine, liver or pancreas. He said if he does the test and finds out it's in the liver or pancreas, there's not much he can do, but if it's only in the intestine, he might be able to remove it, but he also said that Roo is in such terrible condition, she might not make it through. What do can I do
