Bad News

The biopsy on Rosie's polyps came back today. She has bladder cancer. The vet thinks she has 3 to 6 months to live. We're starting her on a special medicine to keep it in check and keep her comfortable as long as possible. He said we could do chemo with the medicine and maybe give her as much as 10 months, but I said no to that. My baby is dying.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. Give her a big hug for me. And hugs to you too.

I'm so sorry to hear that, anti-wife. Cyber-hugs and much sympathy.

Sorry AW. When I lose a pet I lose a member of the family. The only thing to do now is make the most of the time remaining.

I am so sorry. Dogs and cats creep into our hearts and leave a terrible hole when they're gone.

I'm really sorry AW. Really sorry.

I'm so sorry. At the same time, I'm so glad you didn't opt for making her miserable with a treatment she couldn't possibly understand. That's a loving, kind thing to do for her.

Make the most of your time together. I'll be thinking of you both.
