Thankyou everyone for saying lots of prayers for my Cody and I. Cody鈥檚 eye appt this morning said he is not growing any blood vessels and hopefully by next week it should. The doctor believes that he is more comfortable from his prior visit because today Cody let her touch his face. I guess the Tramadol is working. He still has to remain on Agressive eye drop treatment then we were off to see Cody鈥檚 primary veterinarian. She said the eye will scar up and shrink like a raisin and then the pain will go away. Ugh poor Cody. I feel so bad for him taking in all the pain. I wish this never happened to him. I wish I could feel his pain the unknown is just awful. My regular vet took blood and I got the results back alittle while ago. Sad.. the liver values are increasing and I am getting an Ultrasound next week to check to see if there is any regrowth of the tumor. If there鈥檚 non Regrowth then his poor liver is not working like it used to and I have to make the decision if he goes back in the palladia pill or not. He鈥檚 in a catch 22 , no Palladia pill cancer returns. Give the palladia pill makes his poor liver work harder. Poor guy. Pray for no regrowth of cancer. This is so hard he has many issues going on and now has to deal with the pain from this eye. I feel so bad I cry a lot . Thanks everyone for being here in my time of heartache.

Poor Cody, he鈥檚 on pain meds but he hides his head in the Nuck of my arm and sighs so sad I hope this pain is tolerable. I am so sad this is happening to him. I texted my vet in regards to liver disease if I can give extra Milk thistle with denamarin, she said 鈥測ou can try..鈥 I am so sad he has to endure this. So not right鈥 june 17 is his next eye appointment. I still feel in my heart that the eye doctor made it worse. It wasn鈥檛 like this when I brought him in. Happened afterwards. Cody keeps sighing. So sad.

It is so sad seeing them suffer like that. Dandelion extract is also good for liver support. But, given his multiple conditions right now I would be hesitant to add it until things are under better control. Good luck.

Thankyou Walter ! I will try anything鈥 I will ask the vet if I can give that to him too. Thankyou it鈥檚 so sad I wish this never happened. He used to be so happy and now all he does is sleep with his little head down. I bought him a warmer pad in case he gets alittle cold too just in case he slept on that last night with me. Wednesday is his ultrasound it鈥檚 not here soon enough. Thankyou again for your help it鈥檚 so much ever appreciated.

Cody had his ultrasound today, my vet was not in the office although the technician told me there was No Sign of Cancer! Fantastic News for my little brave boy he was shaking the whole ride down. But the liver is inflamed and the tech said the doctor will call you to let me know if his liver is compromised. The palladia pill gave me beautiful extra years but I think now it鈥檚 too strong for his liver. So I am waiting on those results. I pray the liver isn鈥檛 at end stage.. like she previously told me. Cody鈥檚 sleeping soundly right now he鈥檚 my little Angel. Poor guy has to be woken for his eye drops too. I will keep you posted when I find out more, thank everyone for all your love and support 馃惥馃惥

Dee, I hope you receive promising and good news from Cody鈥檚 doctor today. As you already know ... what you are going through with Cody seems to be a lot like what my precious Snowball and I endured.

I am thinking positive for you and precious Cody, And, again, I pray that you receive good news from Cody鈥檚 doctor today.

Sending you and Cody lots of warm and healing hugs. 鉂ゐ煇攫煉曫煇锯潳

I called my vet again today, she is not in the office. I was hopeful she would call me today on her day off but I guess she doesn鈥檛 have the report in front of her. Although , at times she has contacted me about Cody previously on other issues so my expectation was high but I haven鈥檛 received any phone calls. Waiting is so super stressful. Cody is on my lap snoring again. I had to go out earlier this morning and my baby sitter watched him again. She said he did fine but alittle fussy today he wanted down and not to be held. Thankyou for all your Love and Support and through my time with Cody. It really means so much from every one.!馃惥馃挅

I brought Cody to the Eye Specialist today and he is improving alittle but slowly. Cody has Grew some blood vessels which was what the doctor wanted to see. His hole in the eye has closed and a tiny very thin membrane is holding it together and is sealed. So I have to be very careful he doesn鈥檛 bump it to rupture. But I still have to do this Agressive eye treatment for the next 3 weeks. The doctor did explain this is a very slow process to heal but Cody is in the right direction. As far as my regular veterinarian she phoned me and of course I was in the eye doctor appointment. So, I am still waiting to hear back from her regarding the ultrasound. Thankyou all for your prayers and Love and support Cody it touches my heart. I will let you know Cody鈥檚 update as soon as I do. Let鈥檚 hope it鈥檚 tonight! The waiting makes me so anxious!馃惥馃惥馃挅

Omg! Got the call!!! Cody ultrasound confirmed by the doctor no cancer, and taking him off the Palladia pill since there is no new growth for the cancer. She is hoping that taking him off the palladia pill and giving his Liver a rest to recoup she is hoping his liver values will go down. She said he is doing good but in 3 weeks she will have a better idea when the next blood is taken. I asked her about the dandelion supplement but she wasn鈥檛 familiar with it and said to just give the extra milk thistle. So my brave Cody is fighting. I Love him sooooooo Much! Please keep saying your prayers! Thankyou for keeping us in your thoughts! 馃惥馃惥馃惥馃惥馃挅

Oh Dee---"blessed are those who bring good news from a far country!" Yippee-Yahoo (cartwheels by an old lady are not what you want to see)! I am over-the-moon w/you. God has been gracious in hearing our prayers--absolutely no doubt! I could not be happier nor more thankful w/you.
OAN: I take a liver regenerator that has the dandelion in w/the milk thistle & it does help me but have only given the pups plain milk thistle so just keep up w/what your vet recommended---sounds like you are in good hands!
I send both you & our little fighter much love! Kitzi & Lisi are quietly rejoicing.
