Earline, this is very hard for me to reply to because I lost my dear Indy to this in June. Emergency splenectomy done Feb 2. Path reports said benign. He lived 3.5 good months and then went down fast. I tried all kind of treatments, herbs, prednisone, etc. I will always have to live with the horror of his last day because I did not end it a little sooner. This is a monstrous disease. So sorry you are facing this.
