Update #3 on Cooper: second set of results came back - also inconclusive! The largest lump has gone down significantly and Cooper is done with his antibiotics. The vet is pretty confident that it was just an infection. Now I just need to keep an eye his lymph nodes and if they get any bigger then we will have to do surgery to remove one and do a more indepth biopsy. I'm feeling good that this was just an infection and we are just about done with it, I'll keep an eye on him, but I think he's going to be fine!
He's lost some weight in the last couple of weeks, he's been sleeping more and tonight when I came home he threw up! Now he's laying with his head in my lap and he looks miserable and his eyes are so sad - he's breaking my heart, I wish I could do something to make him feel better.
We have an appointment at the vet first thing in the morning, I'm still holding out hope that this is some kind of infection. I'm also bracing myself for bad news - I really hope this isn't cancer, we'll have to see what the vet says...
CrazyCash = so sorry to hear that Cooper isn't feeling too good.
I will be thinking of you to day with everything crossed. Think positive thoughts. Lumps can be all sorts of things - not just cancer. A cancerous lump is unlikely to make him that ill this early on. More likely something that is infected (I hope so).
I'm devastated to say that I got up in the middle of the night last night to check on Cooper and I was shocked to find that he had passed away! I have no idea what happened, I know he wasn't feeling well, but he didn't seem that sick.
I'm in a fog today, I was not expecting this at all. Cash is equally as heartbroken - last night when I checked on Cooper, Cash was cuddled up next to him. It took me two hours to calm Cash down last night, he was running through the house howling and crying.
It's been a terrible month - I lost my 16 year old Champ a little over a month ago and now this. How do you go from 3 dogs down to one in 5 weeks??
Oh CrazyCash - I know that I am new and not one of the regular posters but I just wanted to send you my deepest, heartfelt sympathy. There are no words of comfort I can type but I am very very sorry nonetheless.
Oh no! I am so sad to hear this! I hate this. Im so so sorry for both of your losses, nothing anyone can say will make this easier, but know that you have our full support and we are all sending our love your way! <3 Take care and stay strong!
