Story told by Laura-Marie
My beloved 7 year old scottie died on Saturday April 7, 2007 from histiocytic sarcoma. Kelly only took ill on Monday, had her spleen removed on Tuesday, the tumor was only on her spleen. No other tumors. The doctors were hopeful she would recover and survive for a while longer with 4 doses of chemo. Kelly was eating and performing all her body functions well. But, at 1 AM on Saturday, she threw up, difficult breathing and her heart stopped. We had the doctors do everything they could. We all are grieving. Kelly has never been sick with anything. This is the worst, most dreadful thing any beloved member of a family can get.
I pray someday, there will be better blood screen tests that can discover this silent killer before it is too late.
