Chance was finally able to have his x-rays done of his abdomen and the results were not good. He has a tumor, either on his liver, spleen or pancreas. It is too hard to decipher with an x-ray, so we will be getting an ultrasound done in the next couple of weeks, to know for sure. More than likely it is the liver, since that seems to be the star of the organs for these four dogs.
I've been living pretty much in the moment and it helps that Chance (or any of the other dogs) aren't showing any symptoms.
But it all caught up with me today when we had to take Blaze to the ER vet for diarrhea that I couldn't stop crying no matter what I tried. I just started to feel like our world of the 24 Paws was beginning to crumble.
Piece by piece. Dog by dog.
It's a little more than overwhelming. And a bit scary.
I can't imagine one of them not being here.
So here's to modern medicine that is helping to keep them all alive and well.
And to our wonderful vet who has put up with us through many different scenarios and dogs.
And to you all, dear readers for still taking the time to catch up with us.
