Not as good as we hoped.

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Well we went for my one month ultrasound and chest x-ray today and the results weren’t as good as we hoped. Last month when I got my first one I had an enlarged sternal lymph node and several nodules within my liver. Today’s test show that they have all grown in size. Dr. Ford told my pawrents that it is not really bad news as I am still feeling so good but it is definitely something that we have to monitor closely. When the lab reports come back on my bloodwork my chemo doseage might have to be increased just to slow this nasty disease down. My poor Mom did not take this well and was crying I was trying to let her know that I’m not ready to cross the bridge yet and to please just enjoy one day at a time with me. I am so happy not to be in the pain from my leg anymore and my tail keeps wagging so I am going to hang in there for as long as I can. I do love getting those perogies every morning and if I need to take more pills that’s ok I just more treats!

Talk to you in a few more days with the results of the lab work!

    Dear Tehya

    Sorry to hear about those darn lab results. Why do humans have to do lab results anyway. I used to ask my mom that question. Well, keep enjoying yourself and that will be enough to get your parents to realize that is what matters. My mom could not remain sad when she saw how happy and alive I was, no matter what was in those lab reports.

    Reading . . . definitely overrated. As my friend Tika said, a lack of self-awareness is a greatly under-appreciated commodity.

    Teyha, I know that your spunk, your courage, your pawsitive outlook will show your Mom how to cope with whatever happens. What’s the point in worrying about the future when we are feeling good right now, dontcha think? This is the time to play, to love, to rejoice in everything that is good about our lives at this moment. You can show your Mom that all we have is today, so why not make the most of it? Now get out there and have fun!

    Dear Tehya,

    So sorry to hear about the latest news… I can understand why your mom was crying… She just loves you so much and doesn’t want to loose you… But you tell her that you’re not ready to go anywhere yet… You’re feeling good, and the doc will be increasing your chemo dosage, and maybe that will help to slow those nasty mets down. Tell your mom that you just gotta live each day till the fullest… and enjoy every single minute you have together… As long as you’re happy and feeling good… that’s what counts!

    Sending you and your mom lots of hugs and kisses! 🙂

    Dear Tehya,
    You sound so strong and so positve – despite those lab results…ok I was going to say stupid lab results. The great news is that you’re still feeling so well and doing so great and that’s what’s most important. You’re just going to have to show those lab results a thing or two about how strong you are and how you will fight this! Milk all those perogies for what it’s worth.
    Give your mom a big hug and kiss for us.
    Kami and Mackenzie

    My mom had tears in her eyes reading your post. Sorry about the not so great news! Tell your mom you are not even close to crossing the Bridge! Peyton wants to meet you, but he isn’t ready for you yet, your family needs you for a long time! Keep showing everyone what you are made of and that you feel great! Don’t focus on the bad news, focus on the now! Tehya show your mom what life is all about!

    Keep eating those perogies, they sound yummy!!!!!!

    We are thinking about you! Sending golden licks and hugs your way so you better catch them!

    Hi Tehya, sorry to hear things are going so great for you right now and your mom and dad too. We dogs know how to enjoy the moment, something we should be able to pass on to our humans I think.

    I send you licks to stay strong, some tail wagging to make you happy and a big hug from my mom to your mom
