We’ve just learned that Delilah has a form of cancer, myxo sarcoma, in her leg joints. We have an appointment scheduled with a veterinary oncologist next Friday, but are in the dark about our treatment options or a more specific prognosis. As you would expect, we are distressed at the news of her condition.
Update on Sunday morning:
Yesterday I exchanged emails with another NSX owner who is a veterinarian. He indicated that (depending on her complete diagnosis,), there may be several courses of treatment for Dee. Surgery (to remove) and radiation and / or amputation of the affected leg. His feedback was that a life expectancy of 3-5 years post treatment could be expected.
Of course, we’d love to have Dee as she’s always been – bright’n’shiny with a bit of attitude – but if we can save her life without causing her undue pain and misery, we’re on it 🙂 She’s our “little one”, we love her and want the best for her (and of course) her presence with us for as long as possible.
I’ll have something bright’n’shiny to post over the next few days, so check in as you normally do.
