ok many of you know about Molly.she has non regenerative anemia with bone marrow involvement.we are at the point now the meds they are trying her on is not working.So at this point its either a bone marrow test or spend what little time with her that we can(remember she's only 8 years old)we have decided to go for the bone marrow test.If its cancer,it may be the treatable kind.If its not cancer,it still can wind up being still something very treatable!My little girl has been through so much.The meds shes on now make her wobbly legged and drinks excessively,by night time,her belly looks like a water balloon.Dr says we have to do it now if we are going to do it.Her levels are dropping to fast again.We are having to help her up and down stairs.She'll just be walking & give out right there & will lay down.:cry:
Since the specialist that Missy needs for her skin and hair is in the same building ,we are taking her as well.this place is 2 hours away from us.Missy has been dealing with this for 3 years ,so its well past due to turn this problem over to a specialist.so this is how our Thurs will play out sitting in 2 different doctors offices with our babies.They are our kids so they deserve what ever we can do for them.Please be praying.Molly looks so pitaful now.:(

I'm so sorry you and Molly are going thru all this. Here is hoping the bone marrow test will tell the story, and that whatever shows up will be treatable.

Good luck to you and Molly! I know exactly how you feel, I had a chihuahua once with autoimmune disease (from a vaccine of all things) at only 1 year and 6 months old, and everyday was a new adventure. The hardest part is not knowing what's wrong. Gino went from having a sore leg, to limping from what they thought was lyme disease, then a bad infection, and finally after being referred to Purdue University Animal Hospital it was an autoimmune disease. Just be strong and hang in there, hopefully you will have answers soon!! Praying its treatable and her quality of life improves!! Keep us posted!!

Ok I will start with Molly. We had good news. We got there around 8:00am. They took Molly & explained the bone marrow test. They took her on back. About an hour or so later, the doctor calls us on the cell phone( she didn't know we were in the parking lot, lol) and said she didn't see the need for the bone marrow test,said her baby red blood cells has increased in making new ones!!!! And that maybe it just took a little longer to work for Molly. Me and my husband bout cried we were so happy!!!she has to go back to her regular doctor tues and get blood drawn again. If she is still doing this good, still no Bone marrow test!!!!!!!God is good!!!!so many prayers have been going up for her! The wobbly legs and drinking so much water is from the medicine!God has his hands on this little girl and I believe she's going to be ok!!!so happy and so blessed!!
Missy seen the dermatologist while we were there,she has a skin infection,allergic to mold and pollen. She gave her a
Special shampoo
Conditioner
Eye drops
A different allergy medicine
Ointment to go under eyes
Drops to go on skin
And a months worth of antibiotic.
Thinks it could be a little alopecia and get this , the temeril p she has been on is thinning her skin where you can actually see her veins.
And a tiny little comb to get out the dead hair. Said she"d look worse before she gets better. I know my baby will have her beautiful coat again soon. God is so good to us. She took the eye drops good too tonight!!thank you every one for prayers and thoughts!!
