Just thought I'd put in a short update. Sofie is still doing well, in a month it will have been a year since her diagnoses. I talked to our vet AGAIN, just to double check and he still says 6mos was a good estimate for a dog not on chemo. The chemo set back the tumor enough that it bought us a year. If anyone ever asked me if chemo is worth it I would say yes. Even for an old lady she handled it well and it bought us so much time. I will never be "ready" to say goodbye, but I am content knowing we did what we could and that we were able to buy her an entire year.
However, the old woman doesn't show any signs of stopping it would be great for her to see another christmas
Right now she is living with my parents because I moved into a house with a couple of roommates and I did not think she would make the move well. My cat is also staying at my parents for the time being so she has him to be her buddy but also my mom is home most of the time so she's never alone. They are taking good care of her, I supply the food - she's totally spoiled rotten on her homemade diet - sometimes she gets canned too! My mom was concerned about her sneezing so hard so we have her back on piroxicam and it seems to be helping. I see her a couple of times a week, I may eventually try to bring her to the house I live at. It's always sad when I leave because she wants to come too, I feel like I'm abandoning her but I don't want her to have an anxiety relapse either. We'll see. So far she's doing really well, I'm so happy
