I'm really sorry to hear this, sending good thoughts and prayers to Charlie and you.We have a sad update for Charlie. He's not doing well again and the vet believes it is one of three possible cancers; aplastic anemia, lymphoma or multiple myeloma. We do have the option to do a bone marrow biopsy, but his vet thinks it would be really hard on Charlie as would Chemo (with everything else he has going on). We have decided to make him comfortable for as long as we can. It might be a few weeks to a few months is what she said. His anemia is worse, his breathing is worse, and his platelets are borderline. Yesterday he didn't appear to know where he was. He's better today but that's because I upped his pain meds.
Aww sweet Charlie,by his pictures he looks like the sweetest boy. Sending good thoughts to you both!We made the decision to not do anymore invasive procedures for Charlie. We did do a contrast MRI of his brain yesterday. He has beginning stage CCD (dementia). No stroke. No tumors. More xrays of his other organs (heart and lungs) and no obvious masses. He had ultrasounds last week of the abdomen. His anemia improved perhaps due to sucralfate for possible ulcer. We will continue to monitor labs and it’s very possible he still has cancer that can only be confirmed by bone marrow biopsy. I will not put him through that. We’ll take each day at a time. We’re switching him to a neuro care food, supplements and adding melatonin for the night to help him sleep. Love him to the moon and back.
