I am not just hoping my worst fears are not true. Hard to convince myself though. Her lymph nodes are all very enlarged and hard. her jaw is sore with no reason but the inflamed nodes noticeable as a cause. (she didn't like me looking in her throat and light not great but, I didn't see anything. Teeth are good, no redness and no swelling as far down as I could see)

I am 90% certain she has Lymphoma.

I will be checking her again before I go out of town on Monday. I hope her antibiotics do something between now and then. If it basically proves lymphoma and she will be euthanized Tues or Wed. I can't let her suffer longer than that. We "could" put her on very high doses of predinsone but, that has it's own side effects. It may make her "feel" better but, it won't help the disease process.

:pray

Ugh ugh ugh, so sorry to hear about this - maybe it's just related to an infection, like lymphadenitis ?

I keep hoping. I am debating having a biopsy done on her nodes. But, I'm not sure yet.

My dad took her in today. Her lymph nodes were nearly double the size of Friday. She could no longer swallow easily and was vomiting even water this morning. No doubt she had lymphoma. She was euthanized this morning.
