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

I will... when he falls asleep. He was very exasperated w/me today for poking and prodding him earlier... :rolleyes2: :backRoll:

Thanks for the good thoughts, everyone! :wink:

Mick did GREAT! :bounce:

He got on the scale w/out being a fool, we went to "our" room, I sat on the floor... and Mick plopped down on his side "in position", w/out me even having to tell him.
He still shook and moaned, but the vet techs were able to complete the chemo and blood work without him struggling.
Dr. Correa was able to examine him (the mass is still there, but we decided to just keep an eye on it for now), and when she was done I let Mick get up... he sat quietly while Dr. Correa and I went over his weight, blood work and general health.
Mick has lost weight and she wants me to start feeding him twice a day, 1 1/2 pounds for each meal. Other than that she said he looks good and his blood work looks okay.
When she got up to leave she had her back turned to us and after she said "good bye" to me and Caroline she threw in" See ya next week, Mick!" - and he wagged his tail a little!!!

WOOHOO! :clap:

Only six more treatments to go!!! :)

Thanks again for the continued good/calming thoughts and ALL the support. Without you guys this wouldn't be possible... :wink:

I think we should create a poll, and figure out how to do some type of fundraiser with the date of when Mick will give Dr C a kiss....
