Default Diagnosed with lymphoma

Thought I'd start a new thread here since I was harassed by you-know-who on the Pedigree thread. Anywho... getting ready to pick up my golden baby, Eli, from the vet. He was diagnosed with lymphoma last Thursday night. Did a biopsy today and xrays of his lungs to see what next steps should be. I've already talked to the vet and he said lungs looked pretty good and it hasn't metastized (sp?) yet. Therefore, we may have options. BUT... he's 12 years old and I know chemo doesn't CURE anything with dogs... just gives us more time. I just don't want him to be in pain. He is still his old Eli self... big appetite, runs, plays with Hunter, etc. etc. He's my life. I'll let you know what I find out...

OH, that is so sad. I send you my biggest HUGS!! they can do such amazing things these days. Sounds to me like he has a great chance with chemo..since it hasn't spread. We'll all give special prayers for Eli. Keep us posted...and know that there are people here that really, really care.

Serena...that was so totally cruel. Why is it that you have so much anger? There are people here...me...that have just wanted to be your friend, bask in your knowledge and help. You have crossed the line. It is so sad to me because you are someone that has so much to offer. You profess to have a mission to teach people the 'rights and wrongs' of canine treatment. You lack basic communication skills....it amazes me. You flare up and obsess about 'flaming wars' the second someone questions you. You say you won't 'coddle' someone.......well in the emotionally mature world, a person can get their point across without this need to be so abrasive. Listen and hear what I tell you......you may have all the knowledge in the world, but it is lost because your delivery is horrid. This obviously makes you so proud..your anger makes you so proud...your immaturity makes a statement. You have lost respect due to your inablility to convey any of your knowledge and opinion without insult. As far as your thrill at being able to delete someones membership..go ahead. You are never going to be a leader...this little power trip goes to your tiny brain. I have had so much respect for you...it is gone. How dare you be so pathetically mean to someone experiencing such a difficult situation. YOU, my dear, not only make me sick......I realize today that you suffer from some mental disability..YOU are sick. There are other places I can go to for viable dog information without a brazen brat busting in at every opportunity to act like some canine diva. Flame war........YOU wouldn't stand a chance with me. You lack the sophistication. I don't get angry easily....I've had enough of you.

EliNhunter, my heart goes out to you. I've lived through two cat buddies with lymphoma and one - my wonderful Gonzo - with FIV, several years ago before FIV was talked about. You do the best you can for them, give them the best quality of life that you can, and honor their needs when they look you in the eye one day and let you know that the burden is too much to bear.

You don't know how sick you make me when i read your posts.It seems that the only things you want to share is your anger as for the moment i got on this board i see only that from you.
You say you care about the dogs,the animals...well i don't see how you'll make someone hear you and believe you with how you actually say the stuff you say you know...The way you say it,it means nothing to me and everyone else that
read your posts when you answer like that.You know nothing because you don't have the way to convience people to believe in you.Who trusts you when you write like that?
looks to me that you have lots of problems and you just burst out in the forums.
You have no respect..

I totally agree. This is unreal. When I first came to this site I enjoyed reading the questions or the stories people had about their pets and seeing the support everyone gave each other and hearing suggestions others had. Now its like this big war and I read in shock responses like this. The put downs and I dare you's. This has all gotten out of hand.

As far as my knowledge goes past posts are evidence I know exactly what Im talking about. Too bad you can't understand that and want to live in a rose colored world where everyone is nicey nice.
Oh...no worries serena i don't feel hurt!I can't feel hurted from people like you!
I'm sorry Serena but you have misunderstood something you don't talk with the animals here..you talk with people!And by doing what you do,you don't really help the animals...you push away the people that could change things that do wrong...don't tell me then that you are here for the animals because YOU'RE NOT!!!

I'm glad that there are on this board people that actually HELP the animals!

Serena...again your intense immaturity shows. You attack me for asking about a problem. Do you see how you have the inability to teach? My sensitive feelings...how sad, it is you. You cannot answer anything without anger. That tells me you are overly sensitive. You are the one that makes a complete fool of yourself. I think most people would understand my post. You have become a joke. YOU are the one here for entertainment. I won't continue this..you are not worth my time. Feel like you have won if you like..you seem to need that. You seem to have such a need to be the tough guy....well, puff up that chip.

So, everyone....Serena has played the hard ass once again. Let's all pretend she has won and continue with life. LOL LOL

Any response at this point will be totally for my pleasure. I can always..like most people..enjoy a good laugh. For your ability to be a pro at 'flame wars'..........it will be fun for us all.

Why not just leave us stupid peons for some other lucky forum? If you MUST be here...then stay away from me. You can't possibly phase me....and you would have to always picture me laughing at you. I do still feel sorry for you and sad for you.

I'm sorry about your dog. It's a good thing you got him into the vet so early.
