POTP for Ella

Lucy: My BFF in the whole wide world needs your prayers, your good thoughts, your anything that will help. Here is what her Mama, who is my Aunty Jen, found in her mouth on New Year’s Eve.

Besides the pink thing hanging down over her upper teeth, just below and on the right of it is a discolored piece hanging down, too. When she went to her vet today (Saturday), the dogtor found another discolored one growing up over a back bottom tooth, too. The vet wasn’t too worried about the big pink one. She said this happens to boxers, and they are harmless. But the discolored one on the bottom bothered her. Aunty Jen is going to get a biopsy and maybe some x-rays or something else like that done, probably on Monday. My Mom cried and cried, thinking about her Angel Lexi. Those of you who have been with us a while will remember when Mom found this, only five days since she had last looked in Lexi’s mouth:

This fast-spreading melanoma was first seen on May 9, 2016. Despite everyone’s best efforts to save her, by September 4th, she was gone.

So please, send POTP to Ella. She heard my Mom say my name over the phone today and she started looking for me. She’s only 8 or 9 years old, and I don’t know what I’ll do without her…

      1. It is almost two years, now, and I still dream about him. I miss him so much. I keep reminding myself that I must accept what I cannot change. It isn’t much help. But I am trying to learn from his death. I found a large mole on my shin, and I’m seeing the dermatologist next month.

        1. I can totally relate. At least once every week for the past four years I cry for my Lexi, and think about all the things I could have done differently if I had just known. This is why I have made radical changes with Lucy and Xena: DNA HW tests and no poisonous HW prevention every month; raw diet and no cancer-causing kibble; essential oils and no flea and tick products; titers instead of vaccinations. I know some people must think I’m crazy, but I don’t care. I only care about what is good and right for my babies. I’m glad you are more attentive to your own health, as well. I’m blessed to have a vet who sees the value in holistic medicine and living.

          1. Our old holistic veterinarian (now retired) taught me more about health and wellness for myself than any of my prior health care providers. He was a good healer – for my dogs and for me. I don’t think your approach is crazy at all!

  2. Dear Miss Lucy, I am a little cat, but I know how to put my paws together with the best of them, and they’ll be that way as long as it takes for your friend Ella! I promise I’ll be really LOUD too with my purring meows for her and I hope it helps a lot! She’s really cute and if she’s your bestie she has to be very very special.
    Hugs, JUNE
