Duchess update

My parents took Duchess to the vet today. They examined her and took tests. The complete bloodwork will be back tommorrow, but they've narrowed it down to one of two things: liver cancer (much more probable) or spleen cancer (just as threatening, but much less probable). They say the excess ammonia in her blood from the cancer would be the cause of her massive confusion. She's been such a good dog, but they're giving her weeks at most. It's amazing that she's made it 15 years, being a German Shepherd. At least she'll die peacefully. She'll just get weak, then fall asleep, and not wake up. That is the scant comfort we have.
