The vet called about 45min. ago and told us the cancer was all in her spline, liver. We first thought just in the neck and chest area. She has about a month to live. I am hurting so bad it feels hard to breathe. My sweet baby girl. When I look in those eyes and that little face it breaks my heart the thought of losing her. She was my first female schnauzer and we will give her our best until she has to be put to rest. Please pray for us during this time. We will enjoy her with what time we have left.
Thank you to everyone. Like I said I haven't been on for awhile, our new baby (yorkie,, Kayla) has been keeping me pretty busy. Its hard losing 2 in a year. Its not been that long we lost Max and now Mandy. God, this has to be the hardest thing in the world. I just hope she doesn't feel the sadness I have. She probably knows something is wrong because I have cried my eyes out. Thank you again and keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Does anyone know if the baby wipes would be okay to use on Mandy. I am afraid to bathe or lift her because the cancer being in her spleen also can cause her to bleed out. The vet told me to be very careful about any pressure on her and keep a close eye on her. I just hate for her not to feel freshen up alittle. They all 3 love baths and feel good after they have one. Bless her little heart its like mourning her everyday and she is not even gone yet. I started crying today and it just hits in spells. But, if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. I can't see that those little wipes would hurt anything.
sandys, I'm so sorry for what you're going through. I cannot see how the little wipes would hurt, especially the non-scented ones. If they are safe for a babies sensitive skin I can't how they would hurt a dog. How about getting a rubbermaid tub full of warm water and taking it outside onto like.. a pavement area and just letting the water run over her? I know if you're as devoted to your baby as I am mine, and it surely seems you are.. you'd be willing to do anything to make them happy/comfortable. Many prayers for you and Mandy! <3
I'm wondering if you could use a baby bath, with a raised section in it. You could push a towel all the way under her, and carefully pull it out on the other side, then carry her and just put the whole towel, with Mandy in it, into the little tub. She could lay on her side with her head up, thanks to the molded raised section. I really wish you luck, and hope you can do this for her. ((hugs))
