Have you been doing chest xrays to note growth of bridgett's tumors? Harley's tumors are on the peripheral of his lungs which I understand has a better prognosis than other locations. I also changed his diet to grain free low carb food and have added a lot of brocoli (from the yard). Lots of prayers too
2 Sets of xrays were done in January that showed two tumors, one was 8cm x 4cm the other was 10cm x 10cm. then. I haven't done anymore xrays since I chose no chemo, radiation or surgery. I have left it in God's hands and am just trying to do the best I can with the naturals that I am using.

Bridgett is doing well. She had another vet visit yesterday with xrays of her lungs. The tumor sizes have not really changed and the other lung fields are clear which made us all happy. We are continuing on the 80 mg of lasix twice a day and they did a blood draw on her to check her potassium, although I am told by the vet that low potassium levels in dogs are not as likely as in cats and humans from the lasix doage. It is a bitter sweet to wake up with her this morning acting as if nothing is wrong licking me and wagging and to know that she has this horrible cancer. The vet said she would be blunt and doubted that we would have her next Christmas but to continue on with the most quality of life we have left. My thought is that if the tumors haven't grown in almost a years time than why couldn't it be another great year with her. Hoping and praying that this will be the case.

I have not received any emails from KathyL. Please try emailing me at Goldens4@att.net
