Death Lasts so much Longer than Life

A few days ago my husband and I noticed that Lucy’s legs were swollen. She was acting fine otherwise.. energy level was okay,

My husband took her to the vet… they were puzzled. She was pooping okay, eating fine, drinking fine… energy level was fine. Have I told you, I have always always had a bad feeling about Lucy’s health? Ever since she started limping, and that was three years ago now or so.

Anyway.. she went in for some xrays today, and they found many masses in her lungs. Lots of them. They are 85% to 90% sure it’s cancer.

They are going to do more tests on Tuesday.

Lucy will be 9 years old on February 15, 2008. She is too young. She is so very young. She is my baby girl and I’m just sitting here with tears streaming down my face.

Death Lasts so much Longer than Life… I read that in a book once, and it’s so true. It’s much too true. I love my baby Lucy girl. My Lulu, my boo.

  3. Thanks Julie.. we are going to have an ultrasound next Tuesday then talk about treatment options. Chemo is so hard on the dog.. not sure we will want to do that. We’ll see what her chances are.

  5. Cynthia,

    Last night I was lying in bed thinking about the ages of my house mates and trying not to sleep. I’ve had this house for almost nine years and so the oldest is at least that age. I was shocked to think how the time passes so quickly when we are measuring out the lives of those we love and care for.

    With two ill companions, my heart is with you.
