    Update On Little Olive....

    Olive visited the vet and she was x-rayed, scanned and scoped. She also had lab tests. She has two new tumors, both on her lungs. Tom feels these are metastasized tumors from the transitional cell carcinoma in her urethra/bladder. At this time these tumors aren't causing her current issue. She has a very bad case of GERD (acid reflux) that's causing the vomiting and coughing/gagging. This is likely being caused by the Prednisone and chemo drug Doxorubicin. According to Tom, this can be treated effectively and quickly. He fully understands that we don't want Olive to suffer. Tom says the end is near, but not today. She has two new antibiotics and three more scripts for her GERD.

    Thank you all so much for your prayers and positive thoughts. Love, Barb

    Poor Olive, she is so tiny no wonder she feels the side effects of her meds so acutely. I know you are doing your best to keep her comfortable. Hugs to all.

      Barb, I'm glad that you and Jeff will have a little more time with Olive and that today's problem with the GERD is easily fixed to make her more comfortable. Hugs, dear friend.

              Your post brings a smile tonight, Barb. So glad that Olive's current ailment is treatable and that you have more sweet time to spend with her. It's hard to be in your position (I know) and will just keep sending up those prayers for all of you.

                      Poor little lamb. This has to be hard on Olive, leaving the house when you don't feel good, getting handled by the doctor, just the trial of the day.....

                      I love animals more than I'm willing to admit (almost), and I want you to know I've got you in my heart and prayers Barb. Jeff too. And of course your sweet Olive. And I am glad you have more time with her.
