Melissa's 12 yr old Beagle Girl
dx-ed MCT January 2007
Update Sept. 7th '08 - After being given 3-6 mos to live on drug therapy alone, she still continues to do exceptionally well. She's just slowing down a little due to older age.

Sadly, Sept. 7th '08 - My 9yr old yellow lab, Hampton, recently had a growth removed from her foot. The vet called last Wednesday and said the lab results showed it was Myxosarcoma.
Sept. 13th '08T - Thanks to all of you for your kind words about Rose and for Hampton's recent diagnosis of Myxosarcoma. We have a great visit with the oncologist on Thursday. I would have posted sooner, but I wanted to hear the test results first. Hampton's Xrays of chest and abdomen were clear, bloodwork and urinalysis were spotless, and lymph node is clear. The dr. said it's a very low grade sarcoma on her foot. A surgeon met with Hampton and feels he can get clear margins by amputating her toe. I'll call them on Monday to get the surgery scheduled. Of course, there are no guarantees this will cure it, but it's the first step. I am very optimistic and feel so much better about everything.
