Chemo

Mom is helping me with my blog while I am getting poison chemicals pumped into my body.

Here’s the scoop: I have lumps in my right lung and they are bad. Real bad. The melanoma vaccine takes about 3 months to work. We can’t use it because I will be d-e-a-d before it can work. Yep, it’s that bad. Mom had decided I wasn’t going to get chemo or radiation because she wasn’t going to let anyone make me feel sick and miserable. When the doctor team assured Mom that very rarely do dogs get the bad side effects that people get, she said let’s get it started, then.

So Mom handed me over (traitor) and these otherwise nice people stole about half  drew enough blood to do many tests to be sure my organs are in good enough shape to withstand the chemo. I am a hearty schnauzer and my organs said, “Yes! Hit us with your best shot!” Traitors.  They were so enthusiastic that the dogtor stuck me with another needle and started “infusing” these chemicals into my system. *sigh*

I have to go to my local dogtor in a week to get more blood stolen. Then in another week for the same thing. Then in another week for that plus to get poisoned again. *sigh*

Mommy said she refuses to be “dogless” in one to three months, and that I am the only dog she wants. If determination alone (plus being filled with chemo poisons) will save me, I may live to be an old(er) dog yet!

Oh, I also wanted to let you all know that my wonderful boyfriend Noodle started a GoFundMe to help Mom and Dad with all the vet bills. I guess cancer can be expensive. If you want, you can check out his post

Coming Together for Lexi

to read how you can help – just if you want to, that is.

I am Lexi, cancer patient and Mom’s favorite schnauzer.

  1. Dear Lexi – we wanted to add our POTP to the long list of your friends who are hoping you beat the BIG C. I know it’s NOT the same with humans, but my Mom is a TWO TIME survivor of melanoma so it CAN BE DONE. You just stay strong – beat the HECK out of it and stay here with your Mom and your friends and family. They are giving you the BEST chance my friend and we hope and pray it works BIG TIME!

    Love, Sammy

  7. Good grief!! Cwap of the stinkiest variety!! I am absolutely disheartened and so sad. Just to think a fine Woofie like you has to be subjected to this procedure. If, I could I would will this disgusting syndrome away. You are a brave and honourable Woofie and a role model to all the aninals that get ANY disease or for that matter, any hard situation. I will always think ,when something bad happens…’how would Lexi handle this?’

    Big cuddles fur to fur,

  9. HI Lexi……. It’s me, Noodle’s grandma. The most important thing right now is to stay positive. I can say this because I had cancer 20 years ago. I am a survivor and hope you will be also. One of our cousins had a very dangerous melanoma and he survived also. I hope your mom and dad get the needed funds. I will be praying for you and your family……Grandma Judi

  10. I have to say, I am happy about the speed with which they are starting your treatment, L. I think you are very brave! The sooner those poisons get rid of the cancer, the better, as far as I am concerned. Mom and I are saying prayers for you every day. We did a donation to the GoFundMe, and will continue to send happy, healing thoughts your way.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  12. We are praying with all of our might that this works. We are going to try and donate something (it isn’t about “wanting” to, we WANT to, but we are in an extremely bad place right now)….but hopefully we will be able to donate at least something. But, we can pray and we are going to! DakotasDen
