Misty is a nine and a half year old Weimaraner that was diagnose with Leiomyosarcoma. Misty had to have her spleen removed because it had an 8-10lb tumor that was attached to it. While the surgens were operating they discovered several inoperable tumors on her liver where the Leiomyosarcoma had spread to. Misty has had xrays of her lungs which show that nothing has spread to her lungs and they also checked her heart and lymphnodes which were clean. With our current specialist the only option was to attempt chemotherapy with her. We elected for this to start getting something in there to slow it, with her first therapy being completed on January 2nd and her next therapy will be Monday February 2nd. We have been trying to find a therapy that may be able to be more effective for the liver tumors. That is when we saw information for stereotactic radiosurgery. They have had excellent results with the tumors on the liver responding to this treatement. Now this isn't going to be a permanent cure and we aren't expecting one, but we know Misty isn't ready to give up. Misty still wants to play and is fighting to try to put this into remission. Misty will just stand there to let all of the doctors do whatever they need, like she knows she needs help. On the 21st of January Misty was taken to the doctors thinking she had gas build up, but it turned out she had an internal bleed, but when they monitored the RBC they realized that by some miracle Misty was able to stop the bleed compeltely.
We will need assistance with getting her the SRT treatements, whether that is through donations, prayers, or words of support.
Misty isn't just a pet, Misty is an amazing family member and a "mother" to two puppies that ador her. We want to be there for her like she is there for us, even when she is sick she takes the time to make sure we are ok, even when she is sick she makes sure her puppies get treats before she will eat. For us this is hitting hard, not too long ago we had to deal with our 6 year old Golden Retriever being diagnosed with Lymphoma and we did chemotherapy treatments and got 9 months extra with her.
I thank anyone who takes the time to read about our wonderful Misty.
