Romeo Has Osteo


Guest Leah

Recommended Posts

As i type this Romeo is on his favorite spot on the couch beside me. We went back to the vet this morning. His limping was much worse and he has stopped putting weight on that leg even with the rimadyl and tramadol. The x-ray comfirmed what I knew but did not want to admit. The vet said it seems aggresive and he is in pain. We have upped his dose of tramadol and she gave me a prescription for morphine if he needs it. She said he might have a couple of weeks. I hope no one thinks bad of me, but I can't see putting him through an amputation and chemo.

I came home from picking up his meds and he came to the door wagging his tail. This is breaking my heart. Romeo is our first greyhound. He is our gentle giant. We called him the perfect greyhound. I can't believe this is happening to my big boy. Life is so unfair. I prayed and prayed so hard for him to be ok. Now all I can do is sit here and cry.

OH Leah and Reynolds I am so sorry :(

I was praying those would not be the results you guys would hear.

 

No one thinks badly of you and if they do then they are fools!

I am so sorry! I don't think anybody here is thinking bad or less of you for not going thru with the Amputation, which might not even help. My heart goes out to you. Enjoy the time you have and shower Romeo with cuddles and kisses.

I am so terribly sorry about your Romeo. :cry1 Please don't feel badly about your decision to not amputate. It is a very painful surgery, and as we have seen lately on GT, doesn't always buy them much time. :sad1

 

If you don't mind my adding, osteo is enormously painful, and if the bone should break, it is excruciating. When you help your beloved Romeo to the Bridge, it is better a day too soon, than a moment too late. :grouphug:grouphug:grouphug

 

My prayers are with you and Romeo. :hope:hope:hope

Oh, Leah, I'm so sorry you've gotten this devastating news about your big, beautiful boy. Too many of us know exactly how you feel.

You and Romeo will be in my prayers.

I'm so terribly sorry. :( I totally understand your decision not to amputate. Spend all the time you can with him, spoil him rotten, and make some beautiful memories together.

I'm so sorry.

When boy had the same diagnosis, amputation wasn't an option. He had 4 fun filled days before he was called away.

Make the most of the couple of weeks Romeo has!!!

My heart goes out to you. :grouphug

Oh sweetheart, I am so sorry.

 

My heart is breaking for you. Please take comfort in knowing that Romeo lives in the moment and you make him very happy. He doesn't worry about tomorrow or next week. Dogs are thinking about the here and now, and in that he knows that he has a wonderful mom and dad and he is content.

 

You and Romeo will be in my prayers. If you need anything, please let me know.
