Hi Jennifer,
I'm so sorry to hear about Daisy. I guess there is some kind of something in knowing. I don't know what it is though. I'm really hoping that Daisy beats the odds and you have more time than they think. My oncologist told me 11 years ago that he doesn't believe in statistics because everyone of us can defy them. I believe that about our precious dogs too.
Sending you many positive thoughts.
Take Care,
Lynne

My darling Daisy passed away last Friday. The tumour was too aggressive and the chemo treatment couldn't work fast enough. It was so difficult letting her go but equally heartbreaking seeing her decline and suffer. Our hearts are broken and I hope she's in a better place now, running free.

I will be leaving the group soon and I want to send my best wishes and prayers to everyone, I hope you will manage to keep those seizures at bay for your babies.

One impt thing I have learnt through this - if you can afford it, send your babies for a CT Scan just to rule out brain tumours. I can't help thinking whether my dithering and hesitation on sending her for imaging resulted in lost time to treat her tumour and she could be still with us right now. :(

Best,
Jennifer

Jennifer,

I'm so sorry to hear you lost Daisy. My heart goes out to you and know the heartbreak. I'm sure Daisy would thank you for loving her and taking such good care of her. My prayers are with you all.

Hi jennifer,
I'm so sorry to hear about Daisy. Please know that she knew you were fighting for her. You did everything right. It's this disease not you.

Take Care,
