What a nightmare - sending prayers :hope:grouphug


When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

I have never said this on GT before but - we do think that Darcy was given a larger dose than she should have been given, of Doxorubacyn (her final dose at the end of her chemo treatment). It was sort of alluded to at the time by the vet and then discussed again at a later date but anyway, what I'm saying is that Darcy had her treatment on the Thursday and she was admitted to the hospital on the Monday. She had really bad sickness and diorheah (however you spell it) and she was very poorly indeed. She was treated at the hospital until the Friday (by which times those symptoms had stopped) and we brought her home to continue her recovery. And she DID recover.


Penny may well be in for a rough ride over the next few days but I want you to know of Darcy's story so that you know that it is possible to make a complete recover.


We will be sending very best wishes for Penny and for you :grouphug:candle

Thank you SO much everyone. I haven't gotten an update yet this morning (it's kind of early anyway).


And Bevd, you echoed my thoughts. But I just don't know how much to put her thru or ask of her, when or if things get rough with her. I think a day maybe two, I just don't know. I ask God's guidance for that knowledge of what's enough for her.

Penny update: It's been a day and a half since the overdose.

She is still in ICU and doing okay. Her bloodwork

looks good. She does have a fever and is stiff

when she walks, both probable side effects of the

medication. The doctors are slightly more optomistic

today that she could pull thru this. The maker of the

drug is advising them, and they too said that it is

possible for her to pull thru this. I am very hopeful,

but trying to be realistic and remember that she

could die from this.
