Prayer request for Brandibear (Lakota)

Postby chow fancier » Sat Feb 02, 2008 2:55 pm

Hi everyone,

Linda (Kubbi) who adopted Lakota and renamed her Brandibear, would appreciate it if you could say a prayer for her. Linda took her to the vet because her nose was warm and running a little bit. :cry: It turns out she is pretty sick. Her lymph glands are swollen and there is a lump in her lower abdomen. She is having diagnostics done but the best possible diagnosis would be a severe infection of some sort. So prayers for a good prognosis and healing would really be appreciated. [-o|

Oh my goodness. Prayers and good thoughts. I am so hoping Miss Lakota gets to be the spoiled princess she deserves to be for many years.

I am also hoping this is not serious. Brandibear deserves to be with her family longer after all she went through.

We sent some samples from her lymph glands to perdue & won't hear anything till maybe Monday. The vet has a gut feeling it's lymphoma but also said there are a lot of other things that cause lymph swelling. little BB's blood panel was all over the place- she has been very sick for a while but is actually compensating well. We put her on antibiotics in hope that is is a bad infection. The antibiotic works on Lymes & Rocky mountain as well.. just in case. It's an awful feeling waiting for news you may not want to hear. There was a lot on the slides and my vet couldn't say in 100 % certainty that it was lymphoma. If it still comes back inconclusive we will start Prednesone to keep her comfortable. Chemo would proably be too hard on her. :cry:

I am thinking and praying for Brandibear. Monday does seem like a long time to wait. I hope it is only an infection.

After a long discussion with our vet & talking it over all weekend, we have decided to try a newer chemo treatment for Brandibear. It is strong but she only has to go every 3 weeks for 15 weeks. We thought she deserved that chance. Anyone wishing ot help out with our enornous vet bills for her may contact:
Stellhorn vet Hospital
7913 Stellhorn Rd.
fort Wayne, In. 46815
260-485-2888

50-75 % go into remission and usually for 6 months. We just don't feel she's ready to give up so neither are we.

I'm so sorry you and Brandibear have to go through that. Do you know if the hospital has a paypal account, or do you? Or can we make donations through this site to be sent?

I am so sorry to hear that it is serious. I hope the chemo will stop it and that she will go into remission for longer than expected. I will help as much as I can.
