Not the Best Day

Well looks like Jessee is going to have another battle.  We were at the vet for Accupuncture on Tuesday and noticed she had lost 3 lbs in two weeks.  Keeping upping food and we agreed to start adding olive oil to her diet.  This is in addition to the flax seed oil in her oncology diet and fish oil.  We took her back for a urine sample yesterday and our oncologist was there.  So we agreed a chest X-ray was warranted.  And unfortunately they found a small nodule.  Appears to be one.  Waiting for the radiologist to review and write a report (she has covid).  Feeling pretty crappy and devastated right now.  We are starting her on Ripamycin asap when it arrives.  So we have our fingers crossed and hoping this will slow it down and we can pack a few pounds back on her.  Trying to get my head wrapped around this.   Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

This was a throw back photo from six years ago when this girl loved her pool.  She’s my heart

  1. Yes, Jessee is your heart, Goodness knows she has captured our hearts too♥️. Such a stunning picture of magnificent Jessee.
    Now, while I know you didn’t like what the xray showed, it certainly doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road….not by a long shot!! And I’m not just saying that!!
    It’s one small nodule. Sure, not what you want, but certainly not the worse case scenario. And the weight loss isn’t necessarily tied into anything “bad”. GWIW, my Happy Hannah had a met the Vet said was “big as a baseball” and she never lost an ounce and she carried on with good quality for quite awhile.
    You will develop a path forward that will help keep things stable and continue to let Jessee be Jessee. I have noooo doubt about that!
    And you now this, but remember, NOTHING has changed in Jessee’s world! Spoil, live in the moment, Jessee is already a miracle and I think she has every intention of being the miracle that inspires us all!!
    Extra hugs and lots of love
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  2. That is an awesome picture.

    Can’t you both be in our thoughts and prayers?

    Lung Mets are almost always inevitable but they are not the last chapter. Mets are just one more loop on this roller-coaster ride we never asked to be on. I can only say do your best to live in the now.

    sending you love and hugs.

    1. thank you. I so appreciate that. I’m in a better place today. Got my head wrapped around it and we shall continue forth!!!

  3. Ohhhh now I see why you sent me that email, I hadn’t been here yet.

    Totally agree, this is not the end of the road by any means. One met?? Those are often knocked out or managed and can be kept under control for a lonnnnng time. Some dogs have even gone over a year with mets. You just don’t know and so far, Jessee has really beaten the odds with every other challenge. My heart is saying she will do it again.

    I know it’s hard not to worry. Keep following Jessee’s lead though. Remember she didn’t read the x-rays. She’s still the same old girl. And give her all the ice cream and avocado she wants so she can get that curvy, perfect figure back!
