Lucky

On Friday Lucky our 9 year old greyhound went lame on back leg, wasn't too worried as she gets poly arthritis now and then so gave steroids as advised by vets, got worse Sat and Sun and today can't weight bear.

Took to vets at 12 noon and he said classic site for osteosarcoma (knew that as that was where Sandy's was inner thigh high up), Eric discovered a swelling there last night!

Vets kept her in for x rays and have just rung to say she has Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). 

Can't quite get my head around the fact that another of our precious hounds has got the cruel evil disease, Eric just gone to collect her and then we shall have to decide what to do. My heart feels as though it's been broken and stomped on.

Jim is holding his own and is bright and cheeky AND sleeping through the night, after weeks of not being able to.

(((Sue, Eric, Lucky & Packs)))

Words can't express my sadness at this news. It is so cruel that yet again you have to deal with this.

I hope you can make Lucky comfortable and she can enjoy the time she has left.

I can't believe you are having to face this evil evil disease again.

You and Lucky deserve so much better.

Me and the People Of The House will think about you all in the days and weeks ahead and send you our most positive thoughts.

Love and licks, Winnie

Hi Sue, I've just heard about Jim's passing from Sue & Song. Mums & I are so sorry; it's hard enough without all your other worries. We wish we could say something to help you, which we guess is impossible right now. Hold on to the knowledge that your dogs are loved & cherished and you do your very best for them all. It's the most you can ever do. Deccy & Mums x
