Just dropped Gracie off to school in her cute Chicken costume..I love Halloween! She was so excited this morning to get dressed up! We have been very fortunate with costumes this year. My cute Mom got her a witch costume not knowing about the chicken costume and my cute friend Steph at work borrowed her an adorable zebra costume. Monday night I think we will do the zebra costume so she stays warm!

Millie sure has been in my thoughts..we found out she has Round Cell Tumor which isn't as bad as squamous cell which is great news..I just hope and pray it is slow growing so we have more time with her! I hate cancer! I hate that 2 of my 3 babies has cancer and I can't do anything about it! I hate feeling so helpless!

Tomorrow is the diabetes doc for me. Every three months sure does come quick. Just hoping and praying for good news. I hope everyone is loving this fun holiday and all that comes with it!

Millie's Results

My sweet Millie had the scope done this morning. It was so hard dropping her off. Dr. Israelsen called and said he found a tumor in her airway about 1 inch in diameter which breaks my heart. He was able to remove about 80% of it but he thinks it is squamous Cell carcinoma which means it will grow back fast. It is in the worst location possible. He said we could do surgery where they would cut through the neck to get to it but it is a big deal, so we have decided to just keep her comfortable. He is putting her on the same drugs that Sadie is on for her tumor called CAS options and they have been so great for Sadie. They have bought her good, quality time with us and I hope they can do the same for Millie. I am just in shock. I hate this. Dusty passed away 3 weeks ago today and it is all happening so fast. Sadie turns 12 today! My cute sweet Sadie! I am just so blessed to have had 4 healthy dogs live to be 12! I just hate feeling so helpless. Thank you so much for all of the thoughts and prayers. Love to all.

Our sweet Millie has been having a hard time lately..we noticed she lost her bark about 3 or 4 months ago and since then has been coughing horribly and struggling to breathe..Luke took her to the vet a few weeks ago and he thinks she has Laryngeal Paralysis but it could also be a tumor and the only way to know is to do a scope..we were hoping to put it off for a few months but it has gotten progressively worse the past little while that I scheduled her for Monday and I am terrified for the results. I am so grateful to have had our sweet babies as long as we have but losing Dusty a few weeks ago is making everything seem to real now...I feel like a part of me died when he died..Sadie turns 12 on Monday and Millie and Daisy turn 12 in March. I am just hoping for the best! Please keep her in your prayers for me! Thank you!!!
