This is only a minor update, but I thought I'd share nonetheless.
Rosie's surgery is booked in for a couple of weeks and we've decided to go with the second option (£1,500 and smaller margins around the tumour) I mentioned last update. We won't know if we need chemotherapy or not until after the surgery (most likely in a follow up appointment), and if she does, it'll have to be done through a specialist.
Asides from the cancer, she's doing really well in herself. There's still no change in behaviour and she's not showing any symptoms at all. She's still non-stop pestering for cuddles/ play as well as napping in the dumbest spots possible.
I'll try to answer and reply to as many comments/ questions as possible if you have any :)
Thank you for all the support so far. It's been crazy seeing everyone interact with the post by bumping, sharing, and donating, it really helps a lot and we're so grateful for it <3
If I had spare money I would certainly donate. Unfortunately, flag checks out.
Couldn't imagine life without my doggo. Good luck to you and to Rosie, hope she makes it. Cancer is a fucking cunt. It always takes the best of us
Thank you for the kind words, cancer is a bitch
Also, don't worry about donating! Make sure to look after you and yours first. Everything like bumping and sharing really help more than you'd realise <3
I comment first time but have seen all updates and it's good to hear Rosie is doing better. She has a long life ahead of her and I hope she will recover soon. I wish I could donate but unfortunately I'm far away from my home currently and have to send my money to help my partner overcome her expenses. However I try to budget my salary in someway, so I can help even a little, I don't want to make an empty promise tho, so I can't promise I will donate.
I really love animals and Rosie seems like an positive dog who has energy. She seems to be really strong and I'm sure she can make it. After all this is behind you give her a snack and take her to a huge walk out in the countryside.
She really looks younger than she is! I watched her tiktok videos and she looks like she could run a small village with that amount of energy. Usually it's a sign that she has good home and have been taken care of.
There is nothing better than taking a dog for a walk to the forest or countryside and both parties gonna enjoy it, really recommended! Have a nice evening with Rosie :)
We check her regularly, and a few months ago we found a small lump on her bum and let our vets know.
I didn't word it too well, but I meant symptoms asides from the lump, as when they start to show a variety of other symptoms, it's usually be too late :)
Both mine and my partner's social media is easy to find and public.
We haven't posted a video of us because it's not us that have cancer!
But hey, if being like this on the internet helps you vent, then you do you
Sad to hear. My dog has cancer as well, stage 5a lymphoma. Chemo since christmas eve, it was working really well and then after a while it became chemo resistant. So they moved on to another drug and the same thing. I think lymphoma is terminal even with a full remission, it will just come back eventually.
Hope it goes well for you.
I hope that everything will go perfect with the surgery man. She will be fine man. It's great that when something like this happens a lot of ppl are really helpful, it's nice to see. I hope you will get to that 3k man.
Thank you for the kind words <3
We've opted to go for the cheaper surgery, which still has a 70% success rate, so we're raising as much as we can for that and the potential chemotherapy she may need afterwards :)
Yeah I'm actually really proud, I don't know the better word to put it in, from HLTV, that this community which a lot of the times seems toxic and stuff, when the situation is like it is in your case, can help ppl so much.
It's amazing, HLTV has come together for roughly £400 of this and it's safe to say that we wouldn't have been able to get this far without you all <3
Also, I'll be posting updates every time we get more news :D
Hi mr brit, just donated 5 pounds, I'm Guilherme. Couldn't donate more because our brazilian currency is fucked up right now since we have the worst president in the history of the world, but anyway, I hope she gets well, good luck! :)
Yes, he's the biggest asshole in the world (most people knew that around here, actually), he screwed up in every possible way since he became president, specially regarding to the pandemics, and economy is sinking. Pounds were always expensive here but nowadays its insane :(
