update on Peanut

She is doing well. So well in fact that the vet conceded she may have read swollen lymph nodes in the xray rather than a tumor. So we withheld her pain meds just to see. I went home today at lunch to check on her and she was happy to see me but on the bed shaking. So I gave her a pain pill. Looks like the vet read it right and we are back to waiting.

At least the pain meds work well for Peanut. If nothing else, you give her the gift of quality of life

I am so sorry to hear about Peanut. I wasn't up on her story so I went back and read up to date. My dog, Lodi, had to be pts on November 4th. She had a mast cell tumor in her groin area, Grade III. She did very well for a long time then in a matter of two days she got very ill. Lodi was also on pain pills but they didn't dope her up, so I gave them to her 3-4 times a day toward the end.
When she was first diagnosed I also wanted to know what to expect and when she was going to die but no one can predict the future. Just take it one day at a time with your girl, don't read bad omens into everything you see but do be aware of drastic changes. Love her, spoil her and enjoy every minute you have.
I know everyone keeps saying that you will know when it is time and I was desperately afraid that I wouldn't know. But you will - you just have to admit it to yourself that it is time. And if you need advice, come ask here - they helped me so much when I thought I didn't know.
If you would like to know Lodi's complete story, I would be happy to share it with you. Take care and give your doggie lots of hugs!
