We are DONE!

Here is where we can discuss canine cancers and treatment options to create a support system for those dealing with the disease.

Finally... our last treatment was yesterday, and Beast was great!
Strutted into the vet office w/his backpack on, got on the scale, and actually pulled me into the exam room. lol
No shaking or growling what-so-ever, he was very matter-of-fact about plopping on his side and receiving his injection. While the vet techs did that Dr. Correa examined him at the same time... he grumbled once, but it wasn't a vicious warning - he just wanted to voice his objection of being touched in the nether-region again, I think. :giggle:

When Mick was done we went to the waiting room and waited for the results of the blood work. I paid my bill and he actually sat right next to me, quietly, while the receptionist behind the counter did all the paperwork. She also handed me a bag of doggy biscuits which said:" Happiness is... the last day of treatment."
Beast THEN decided to take off his muzzle (well, he tried) to get at the hated vet wrap on his leg... I freed him and he ripped off the wrap w/a vengance, then proceeded to scarf down some of the treats.
The vet tech came out w/the paper for the blood work, and he actually gave a quick little tail wag... it made her laugh.

When we left the little sh!t lifted his leg - and PEED ON THE DOOR. I guess he finally showed THEM what he thought of the whole affair. :shock: LMAO

The plan now is to go for periodic blood work, which my regular vet will do, and check Micks lymph nodes on a daily basis (which I will do)... if/when he comes out of remission we will start him on oral meds, his health and demeanor permitting.

The whole bill for chemo therapy was $5876.95... and PBT/members raised and donated almost $1800.00 of that (including one VERY generous donation of $1000.00 from an extremely generous lady who insisted on staying anonymous).

I can't thank you guys enough - without all of your support I wouldn't have been able to get Beast treated, and the weekly encouragement and good thoughts meant/mean the world to me.
You guys are the reason that my heart dog is still with me, and I am SO, SO grateful to everyone for allowing me to have more time w/him.

Michelle... again, THANK YOU for making the forum available to us and for being so generous and kind in regards of donations and fundraising.

You all have a very special place in my heart. :heartbeat: :hug3:

The happy patient... lol

God, I LOVE him SO much.
