Jazzabell is going downhill...

She has vomited several times tonight. I have been on the phone with the vet, and I have made the decision that it is best not to proceed further with treatments. She has been panting heavily, and the vet feels she may have tumor in, or around her heart. I am going to keep an eye on her tonight, I have to go to work for a few hours, and then I will be meeting with the vet later on today. It is a double whammy, because my friend Jon and his nephew were supposed to arrive today, but the nephew was in a bicycle accident in Minnesota and broke his arm, and they have postponed until August. I am so bummed out right now. I just hope she makes it through the night. I will keep you posted.

Re: Jazzabell is going downhill...

I am so sorry. I have been checking for upates on Jazzy and was hoping she was having good days.

This is so difficult for you, but at least Jazzy had this great time with you and the other dogs. Something drew you to her that day you brought her home - you showed her some of the good life in a caring home during her twilight days.

Re: Jazzabell is going downhill...

HUGS Richard and Jazzabell. I am so very very sorry. I am sending you prayers right now, knowing this is all so much easier for Jazzabell than it is for you right now. You have given her a dream life, what a lucky dog to have you for her Dad. HUGS Richard!

Re: Jazzabell is going downhill...

I'm so sorry Richard! Take comfort in the fact that you gave her many, many days filled with love & security. She is lucky that you found her and you are a better person for having had her in your life. Take care & keep us posted. My thoughts & prayers are with you both.
