|An update on Calpurnia-
We have tried treating her sarcoma with chemo drugs for over a month now. The drugs slowed the tumor growth, but it was still growing. On Tuesday she started limping. After confiring with the vet and doing xrays (her lungs are clear, bloodwork is excellent), she said things were not going to get any better.
I don't want my girl in any pain, so we made the decision to amputate. We are using a different vet (our normal vet is not equiped to amputate) who I have not met, which makes me nervous, but we are scheduled in for tomorrow morning.
Please keep Cali in your thoughts tomorrow.
