You are doing an 'awesome' job of making critical decisions and keeping your wits about you. I so admire your strength, it takes so much emotionally to deal with canine cancer.
Well, thank you. I really don't think I could be this strong without this board. I mean a lot of my decisions have been based off of your stories and without your support I think all of this would be much harder to accept. Not to mention my parents are the kind of people who not only don't have much money, but even if they did I know if I didn't have a job/wasn't an "adult" they would not even attempt paying for chemo. My mom even gave me a hard time about doing an MRI because "she's old and she's going to die anyway". I told her she needs to consider the fact herself because she is old and she's just going to die anyway
It's just good to talk to people going through something similar, or at least dog people who realize they aren't "just dogs". That isn't to say my parents are totally unsupportive, I know they feel bad for Sofie and they do love her, but they view animals differently than I do.
Thank you all for the reassurance. I will say it does
take a huge weight off of my shoulders knowing what we are up against. I feel a lot more hopeful and we'll see how our next rounds of chemo and such go. I'm hoping for a good couple of years too, at the very least it would be great if she made it to and through summer so she could go camping!
