We are supposed to have an ice storm today and/or tonight. I am not a happy camper. Give me snow any day over ice please. I am getting my work caught up and plan on leaving around 2pm unless it starts getting bad outside in which I will leave earlier.
Joe is on his way to take Annie to the vet for stitches to be removed. He will also talk with Jason about a few things going on with her. She has several spots popping up all over, including one above her right eye. They look just like the cyst Jason removed last month. But the speed at which they are appearing is a bit alarming to us. We are also wanting to put her back on her arthritis medication. Jason had us stop it when she started taking the other medication but I really think she needs it. She has arthritis all throughout her spine and into her neck. Can you just imagine having chronic pain and suddenly have your medicine taken away?
On the upside her appetite is great! This morning I thought she needed to go outside but she walked over to her sister's empty food bowl and stared up at me. I gladly filled it full and she had some breakfast.
We are so worried about our baby. I hate to say this but I don't think it will be very long before she has no quality of life. I hope I am wrong but how can you tell? I wish she could talk, even if just for 5 minutes, to tell us what's really wrong.
**Joe just called. The good news is that the medicine Annie is taking is also helping her arthritis so we are good there. The bad news is the spots that are popping up are the cancer spreading. She is getting 5-6 new ones every day. Jason said as long as she is eating well and drinking she is good. Joe asked him if he thought she was in pain and he said she seems like she is not but we have no way of knowing. We will keep her comfortable and happy until she lets us know differently. If anyone knows anything to look for when she starts to hurt please please let me know. I do NOT want her suffering at all if I can help it. Yes, it will break our hearts to have her put down but it is what responsible owners do**
