Spring is here!
Not much news lately, we're mostly simply enjoying the great weather and are very happy to be able to train outside, play in the pool again, jog in the woods and enjoy the sun. La is still feeling great and has no problems at all and no metastasis. She had last chemo last week and we were looking forward to times with no vet visits, but unfortunately, right after the last chemo, I found a hole in her palate... - what is a possible late side-effect of radiation, but VERY rare, so nobody really saw this before nor knows how to deal with it... Everybody seems very concerned about surgery on a tissue that was irradiated – and just as worried about leaving this as it is... So at the moment, we're observing the hole and thinking what to do... I can't believe La first gets a very rare nasal tumor that then turns out to be mast cell tumor what is extremely rare for a nasal tumor and now has just as rare side-effect... I guess she is one in a billion dog in more aspects as just one... She says a hole in the palate is a piece of cake in comparison to hole in a stomach, so let's hope she is right, she sure got us all very worried again...
As pretty and as happy as always: with or without the hair!
She looks wonderful! My 12yo mixed breed recently had surgery to remove regrowth of a soft tissue sarcoma on her lip. She was also “against the odds” to have it regrow, then went against the odds again when the reconstructed tissue of her face didn’t establish a blood flow. Long story short, I took care of a dog who looked like a zombie until the tissue that was left was ready to be fixed. Now she has a missing piece of her face, but Zoe is also still just as happy and beautiful as ever. She can’t wait to get back into her sports (nose work and barn hunt.)
I am so glad to see and hear of La’s progress. I think she will handle the hole just fine with you caring for her and watching after her!
Wow, good to hear what they can all get through! With La, I think this will be the hardest part of this fight… It went really smoothly till now, so we had really high hopes, but now I’m really afraid of what happens next… It’s good La isn’t though!
What a beautiful girl!! La looks awesome…….and with a smile that melts your heart 🙂 I’m sure La is right -- La is always right!! 🙂
I sure hope so!!!
I keep my fingers crossed for La´s full recovery! She sure looks happy and strong 🙂
Don’t forget the sunscreen for La now that she has no hair! 🙂
She is beautiful inside and out.
Love La. She’s truly one in a million, and a fighter! <3 keep fighting and smiling La 🙂
Happy to see La smiling…. she’s strong…she’s a fighter….and she’s fighting to see you happy and smiling… 🙂 You will find a solution for this problem, as always… I’m sure :*
She fist was, she is, and she will be a dog in a billion, so I am sure that everything will come back to normal soon. Just time..
She looks beautiful and so happy -- I’m so crossing fingers the vets come up with a good solution for her latest hurdle.
La’s fighting spirit is so impressive! She’s an inspiration. And it makes me so happy to see her big smile!
