Arrival Story:
We adopted Izz from Last Day Dog Rescue, they rescue dogs from high kill shelters and dogs that would have been sold to research. We got her at 8 weeks old. On 8/26/10 the day after her first birthday we found out Isabelle has lymphoma. We are treating it with chemotherapy. So far it seems to be going very well. Update: 9/13 Isabelle is in complete remission!!!! Update: The vet thinks Isabelle's lymphoma is spreading to her brain. We have changed her protocol. 11/15: Isabelle is officially out of remission. 11/30: Isabelle is having neurological problems and lymphoma is in her brain. We are trying different chemotherapy drug combinations and might do radiation. 12/10 Isabelle had a bunch of seizures in a short period and got a lot worse, we had to help her over the Rainbow Bridge. We miss her so much, but are glad she is now cancer free. Isabelle our forever puppy

So last week I got really sick. My WBC was super low and the vet thinks I had a seizure. They think the lymphoma was traveling to my brain. My vet decided to start me on CCNU, its a chemo drug that I will get every three weeks. I guess this drug passes into my brain so it can stop the cancer. Hopefully it works. I have been feeling okay since having it. I go tomorrow to get my blood checked. I guess we will know for sure then.

 

Low white blood count and the e vet

I had to go to the emergency vet last night. I have been feeling tired since my last chemo treatment on Monday. I also started falling down. I don't know why but it's like I loose my balance and fall onto my side.
The vet said my white blood cell count was very low. They gave me antibiotics. Momma is talking to my oncologist tomorrow about starting prednisone again. I didn't like the emergency vet, we had to wait forever.
Well I am SUPER tired so I am going to nap. Hopefully I feel better soon.

 

Woohoo!

Still feeling good! My last chemotherapy treatment went great, no side effects! I don't have to go this Monday, but I have to have my white count checked to make sure it's still up. I think Momma is going to take me to see a holistic vet on Monday too. I wonder what that will be like.
I have been having a blast lately. So much frisbee and good food.
