Lori update: She's home!
My baby is home now.  She's had the first shot in her planned course of chemotherapy, and we'll be monitoring her condition.  She is walking on her own, a little slowly, but she's able to stand up without assistance.  She's occasionally showing signs of pain and I'm worried that she doesn't have very far to slide back before living won't be worth it any more for her, but for right now I think she's relieved and happy to be home.

Her treatment has run to about $1700 so far and if it follows the full course it will be around another $1000.  That hurts, but I couldn't live with myself if I didn't try, once she was diagnosed with a condition where there was a reasonable chance -- no certainty, there never is, but a reasonable chance -- that she could be helped, with treatment that wasn't going to make her so miserable it wasn't worth it.

(EDIT 9:22 CST) Thanks to all who offered support. We still need your good thoughts; she's still a sick girl and we aren't going to have very much longer even in the best of circumstances.

I'm happy to hear that Lori is home and doing better. I know this is a tough time right now. Just spend as much loving time together as you and she are able. And cherish every moment you have with her. I'm sending loving and healing thoughts your way. And lots of hugs too. And a doggie biscuit too!

Good luck, Phil. If most of the people out there were as good as most of our dogs, we'd all be better off. *sigh*
