Pearl Has Hemangio


Recommended Posts

The ultrasound came back with a huge splenic mass and several liver tumors. The exact same 'effin' thing that Brindle had.

Unlike Brindle who was in distress, Pearl has some options, even though they suck. She can have surgery which may prolong her life by 4 months, chemo would add another couple months.

But Pearl is 12 with heart disease and hypertension.

However, she is in the same condition as her 12 yr old sister. So age really should be a factor, just her heart and BP. Which are very stable. She probably would survive surgery.

Without surgery she has days, weeks. Maybe a month or so. WIth the way she's feeling now, I don't imagine months is in her prognosis.

I just put Diamond thru cancer surgery.

Pearl was feeling REALLY GOOD since being put on the pimobendan. THis is so unfair. We were keeping her heart and hypertension under control and she was feeling really really good.

this sucks.

 

add to the equation that Diamond was given a 1 yr prognosis in Oct and my Onyx is already 14, this is going to be a really bad year for me.

Oh for doG sakes!!! What horrible news. I wish I could do something more than send cyber hugs. If hugs could cure cancer, the amount I am sending would do just that. Listen to your heart, I know you will do the right thing.

I too wish I could give you a real hug. Your Pearl has been such an inspiration -- not fair that you and she have to face this too.

 

You're in our prayers.

Mary Pat,

That is what Mitzi had. She was just short of 14 and there was no way I was going to open her up. The vets at Red Bank were great and understood my feelings. I know what you are going through and it is heartbreaking.

how terrible. but how do they know it's hemangiosarcoma without any type of biopsy? Bailey's splenic tumor was a spindle cell sarcoma.

This is so unfair and I am so sorry you have to face this again, I lost my diva kitty Ms India to cancer in October. She was one of the reasons that we adopted Brady.

 

These are never easy decisions. After intestinal surgery, and chemo by pill, she was helped to the bridge 8 weeks after.

 

I send you heart felt hugs.

 

Debbie

The handsome boy Brady, mid-morning nap. The sun, the sun feels so, so, so good.

I can't keep my eyes open ... ... Retirement agrees ...

... and the Diva Ms India, 2001 - 10/16/2009 ....
