Is this the last drop on Eddie's roller coaster?

Last week Eddie was doing very well. Her energy was up, she was eating a full bowl of food. She had even gained a few pounds. A few days ago, she stopped eating. We added more anti-naseau medication and she ate half a bowl of food Tuesday night. Last night and this morning she wouldn't even eat her favorite liver treats.

She's being hospitalized today. She has a raging infection. She also has indications that the lymphoma had spread into her liver. We can treat the infection, but it won't stop the lymphoma. If we give her more chemo at this point the infection will kill her.

She's being hospitalized right now, at the cost of a total depletion of all my savings. Maybe, just maybe, she'll come out of this. But even if she does, I don't think I have any money for future rounds of chemo. I'm going to go see what I can accomplish by cutting ALL eating out and recreational costs for the next two months.

But even if I can find the money, Eddie's in a bad place right now. I'm leaving work to go spend some time with her, because this is very likely the bottom.
