Allegra update #2

My radiation oncology group was nice enough to see me 5 minutes after I walked into the office - 30 minutes before my appointment. Got home and found a message on the machine from my vet.

Arrythmia. Fluid in the lungs. Vomiting blood. Signs of liver failure.

To figure out what's causing all this, Allegra needs EKGs, ultrasounds, X-rays and a multitude of other diagnostic tests. Starting at around $1K, just for diagnostics, not treatment. The likely suspect is, it figures, cancer.

Now I'm faced with the decision of whether to continue what will be a very costly process that has no guarantee of Allegra's survival.

Or I can have her put down.

Today sucks.
