Check up and Chemo today. After all, it IS Tuesday.
Vinny now weighs in at a whopping 75.7 lbs.! I'm thinking he may now qualify for the "Michelle Says My Dog is Fat Club".
His calcium is still in the normal range and HCT (the one that shows anemia) is up to 32 which means that's getting better. The rest of the bloodwork is looking good. He got the Vincristine today so everything went pretty quickly. Six more chemo treatments to go and then we are done!
Vin is acting pretty good today. This crappy, cold, rainy weather we've been having lately has a negative effect on us all, but he definitely enjoyed his walk to the appointment today.
We heard some sad news today. Last week a bulldog was brought in to see Dr. B. He was full of cancer - liver, lymph nodes, everywhere. He was in great pain. His owners decided to give him peace and put him down. He was only 1 year, 11 months old. Dr. B said to me that if they could all respond as well as Vinny to treatment.... The cancer was just too advanced in the poor little guy. How very sad.
RIP little bulldog.
I feel like I am so very blessed to have a second chance with Vinny. I know that the evil killer is lurking in the darkness, waiting for his chance to bring incredible grief, suffering, and death into our lives. BUT we fight and fight and fight because we got the chance, and we enjoy every day with a brand new awareness.
Thanks and blessings to all our fellow fighters and loving supporters.
