Brody’s buddy Michelle update

Michelle is doing well should be moved out of ICU tonight.  She will have a second surgery Monday or Tuesday.  She is very tired but that’s expected. She needs some of Brody’s energy.  If only we could send her some.
I did talk to Michelle’s Husband yesterday to let him know of our decision with Brody and asked him to let her know.  He sent words of support and assured me I made a good decision.   Michelle has been going through chemo for years and she was who I went to for advice when Brody was diagnosed.
Keep Michelle in your thoughts and prayers she has been through so much!

Decision for more time

Brody had his re-check today.  Incision looks great. Unfortunately  with the path report we had to make a decision today of more time or just palliative care.  Brody is almost 4 and very happy and active with being a Tripaw. Osteosarcoma is as you most know aggressive and will usually metastasize.  After discussing our options and due to his good health otherwise Brody is having his first chemotherapy today.  Ohio State Veterinary Oncology is very busy so we started ASAP. Tears are many as I realize his time is limited but he has more life to live.  Right or wrong we are in this Journey together.  I may need help with side affects but let’s hope not.  I’ve been through this decision before with my husband and he had 2 extra years with his daughters.  Thanks for the support here.  💛💛🦮

Sarcoma Buddies

It’s been a busy week for Brody. He has been healing great and seems to move well. We have had to remove his play yard area because he was able to climb out so more dangerous to keep him confined.
My friend Michelle came to meet Brody this week, she has sarcoma and will have amputation on Tuesday. She was amazed by his mobility and said it made her feel like everything will be ok. Her daughter said he did more for her than we could know. She feels a bond and has ask us to ban Brody to visit her as soon as she can handle a visit. I had tears of joy seeing them together.
