I received sad news about a week ago today I believe. The sad news is that Sergio, my Smooth Fox terrier, who is about 11 years old now, has been diagnosed with Lymphocarsonoma. I may have misspelled that long dreadful word. I'm still in shock but thought I'd share that information with my wonderful friends I've met and talked with through our love of yarn.
Daily it is a struggle to look him in the eyes knowing that he will leave me so soon. I love him dearly and will be dealing with him being gone sooner than I want. The vet told me without medicine he would be gone within 6 weeks (that was a week ago). With high doses of Prednisone he could live 6 weeks to 6 months. She also offered a version of Chemo but I didn't want to put him through weekly injections and things like that. .
So my dear friends, I'd rather not chat about what is going on with Sergio but I wanted to share this news with my followers.
