Thanks to everyone for the continued support and good support.

Lisa, I have a holistic on the list to talk with. It's the vet that DianaB has been taking Siena to for years. They were on my mind to talk about acupuncture for Kayla's hip dyplasia and hiking. Now add the events of this week to the discussion and your latest suggestion to the discussion. She is actually moving around pretty well at the moment. Thanks.

Samuel the first few days aren't to bad with the stitches, but just like in humans in a few days when the healing is really working they will start to itch or feel a bit like they are pulling, that is the problem time.

Kayla sounds like my Cheyenne, we call her Cheyenne large and in charge.

More healing thoughts for Kayla.

Yep, kinda anxiously waiting for the results. Like to say it's not on the mind while waiting but who would fooling who? Just a 24/7 brick that we cope with. Have an appt with Lancer and the regular vet in the morning so will discuss some options for Kayla. And try to a phone consult with the holistic vets.

Val, that was what I was suspecting, that we wouldn't see her starting to go after the stitches and incision area until we take her off the antibiotics and pain medications this weekend.

She has now decided to go out to the backyard on her own so the dog door has to get closed which will not make Sir Lancer happy. Though the back is our usual place for the dogs to potty, it's two flights worth of stairs that I don't want Kayla using for the next few weeks until the stitches come. The front is only two steps, so that is where Kayla is restricted to for the next two weeks.

Good luck with Lancer tomorrow, hope that everything is okay with him.

When they start feeling better, like it seems she is now, it starts getting harder! I'm sure she misses her back yard smile

Kayla's diagnosis and suspicions confirmed. Hemangiosarcoma. As the surgeon did not find any other evidence of the cancer in her systems at the time they don't know what time we have.

Thus we begin this new journey of discoveries searching for paths and adventures not explored or experienced and to enjoy while we travel this road.

I don't know if this info will be encouraging or not. The late Barker the Younger came down with hemangio. After her first bleed and operation (spleen removal), we started chemo which she tolerated very well. At this time, there was no other signs of cancer. I got 6 or 7 months before her second bleed. Ultra sound revealed that the cancer had spread to other organs and I had her euthanized. Subsequent information has indicated that's about it. I hope your protocol works for a longer remission.

It's a nasty cancer but I was told it is not painful for the dog.

I'm really sorry, Samuel. I was really hoping and praying that it was going to be something other than this. But you will be able to make the most of this time together and appreciate and cherish every moment. hugging
