Fluid build-up in stomach- HELP

What happened with the ultrasound Sarah?

I'm so sorry. I went through a similiar situation with my 12 yo beagle. We had to remove the spleen in his case but the cancer had already spread further. I went the steroid route and he was comfortable for another month or so. I sincerely hope they work for you and give Meeka some comfort.

Im sure you have made the right decision, hopefuly the steroids will help Meeka feel better and give her some quality time with you. My thoughts are with you

thanks everyone for your kind words. it's nice to have a place to go where people understand.

Just checking in today to say I hope you had a good day. I hope you are all doing well. You're still in my thoughts and prayers

I'm so sorry to hear your news. I hope your Meeka is comfortable. Hugs to you both.

So sorry to hear this.. I hope Meeka and you enjoy your time together. I think it's really brave that you decide not to start chemo etc. You are in my thoughts. Hugs.

Sarah, you guys are in our thoughts.

the steroids have started to help a lot. she's acting like her old self again- which i'm happy because i can tell she's feeling good, but its also hard because i know its not going to last.. so i'm just trying to enjoy the time we have and not think about the future..


Good to hear that Meeka is coming back, if ever so slightly. Enjoy it for as long as you can..

I'm glad Meeka is feeling better and you have more time with her.
You are so right, the forum is a wonderful place for advice, helpful suggestions, and an understanding ear. We are blessed to have such caring members.

Do sometime special that you both like while Meeka is feeling better and gets lots and lots of pictures. Give Meeka something special likes to eat and take pictures take pictures playing and sleeping. I am not crazy we did with YOYO and it does help at another time. Have a good rest of the day.

I'm so sorry to hear about Meeka's situation. This is the first time I've read the thread all the way through and I have to say I'm just sitting here in tears. I can't imagine what you must be going through. But please know we all care about you and are sending good vibes your way. Our babies are so precious. This is just so heartbreaking.
