February 4, 2019: The results of the fine needle aspirate performed indicate that the enlargement in her lymph nodes is not lymphoma, but reactionary to whatever is going on in her lungs, which is great news. Tuesday we took her back for a respiratory PCR panel and are currently awaiting results. Please keep Noelle in your thoughts!
Sweet little Noelle came to us from the shelter right around the holidays, after recently having a litter of pups. Emaciated, she weighed only 46 lbs. Her golden spirit was dampened by the fact she was also pretty sick. Initially diagnosed with pneumonia, she has been on antibiotics for 6 weeks. Still unresolved, we are now investigating other possibilities for her respiratory illness. Her x-rays still show opacity in her lungs that can be attributed to a few things, and her lymph nodes are enlarged.
While she has come a long way in foster care, gaining 8 pounds since her arrival and interacting with her foster siblings, she still tires easily and has her down days.
Please keep Noelle in your thoughts as we try to determine the root cause of her illness. If you would like to donate to her continued medical care, please select the yellow DONATE NOW button on the right.
We will keep you posted!
