Not a Good Day

While Cody was being prepped, the surgeon found that what was thought to be a benign lump on his spleen was a sarcoma. These are highly agressive and fatal for dogs. At this time, Cody is having a spleenectomy as I write this. If he gets through that OK, we'll have him on chemo for about six months, and hopefully end up with having him around for about another nine months.

While we're trying to find the bright side in this, it is really hard.

Kim, so sorry to hear about Cody! We went through some tough times with our lab a few years back and it is heartbreaking. If you need a good pet oncologist let me know: we found one in Portland that was willing to have a phone relationship with us because we're in Corvallis. She was great and our Elmer had 18 happy months on Chemo.

The only upside is that Cody is going to live in the moment, one day at a time, and not look into the unknown future. There is a great lesson in that for us all. My prayers are for you all.
