Have not posted in a long time.

Took Kayla to emergency vet this morning. She was way too lethargic and having trouble getting up.
She was in shock when we got to the hospital and X-rays showed a mass/tumor on her spleen that they suspected was causing internal bleeding. After stabilizing today, she is going into surgery tonight.

Please send her prayers and great thoughts for this journey.

Lisa, thank you again for your support and words today.

Samuel

Oh Samuel, can I say again how much this sucks?

Do you know when surgery is? I will be up for awhile, so will be holding good thoughts. Please keep us posted how she is doing.

We have some links and information here, but I'm thinking that right now your focus is on the surgery tonight. I am glad that they got her stabilized.

She's in surgery now. They stabilized her and did an ultrasound. They did see any evidence that anything had spread but did see a lot of blood in the abdomen. Decided not to wait longer.

She's been a healthy dog, that has to work in her favor.

Max's hemangio was pretty much everywhere once it was found. Some tumors are benign, but with the bleed, I don't think that's the case frown

Out of surgery. Still getting blood transfusion and monitoring for irregular heart rate. Removed the spleen and performed a gastropexy while they were in there. Did not see any evidence that there was any spread of anything, but think it's too early to make that determination. Expecting results from tests of the tissues by Thursday.

If this is cancer, then the bleeding will encourage spread. You might want to talk to the vet about starting on some "anti-spread" drugs while you are waiting for the results? This dog used doxycycline and deramaxx, the latter, being an NSAID: http://www.fightcaninecancer.com/tiny.html

I don't know if any health food store around you might have a good general mushroom product. This is the particular one they are studying for hemangio, but I don't know if that means the others aren't as effective. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/09/120910161556.htm

Aw, sending all good thoughts out to Kayla and you and your family, Samuel.

Hemangio is nasty--you definitely want to put her on the mushrooms Lisa is suggesting.
