Happy New Year to everyone.. sure hope this year will be better for everyone !
So far ours is starting off better.. Marielle is tolerating her chemo treatments. She is within the last 57 days of the second phase of treatment .. WOW ! any child that has to under go chemo treatment is my hero ! .. for that matter anyone that is battling cancer or any other depilating disease ! At the end of this phase she will move on to the maintenance phase .
Moms favorite Uncle went back for his check-up and his cancer responded very well to the isolated limb profusion. The effect of the chemo will continue to work for another 6 weeks so we will have another recheck then. Remember this isn't a curable disease.. but this treatment is to help save his arm from being eaten away from the cancer. The tumors have almost all gone away or shrunk considerably ! All very good news. In 6 weeks if nothing new pops up than we will either do another round of treatment or he will do an isolated radiation treatment to what ever tumors remain.
As for me i have been driving mom crazy with tummy issues on and off and getting her up about every 2 hours with my coughing spells.. during the day i am a happy girl but mom is exhausted , especially on her work days.. by 2:00 in the afternoon she can barley hold her eyes open.
I over heard mom talking about calling my dental specialist ... ummmm... i only have 5 teeth left .. but about 1 month ago mom found a red ulcer looking thing on the under side of my lip.. she took me right away to Dr. T and he had no idea what it was .. but since it wasn't bothering me at all he said to just watch it.. mom noticed that the redness is traveling a little so she thinks we better get it checked out.. i tell her i can't have any other anesthesia for any procedures so whats the point .. but you know how moms are ...
So Happy New Year to all my pals !
Happy tail wags,
