While hoping for a better outcome, I guess the confirmation was what I had expected. Chester's epitheliotropic lymphoma has spread to the lymph nodes. The vet wants to further increase his prednisone dosage and we can hopefully slow down any further progression. While she wasn't optimistic, she did say you just never know.

She will call Monday to check and see if the extra medication is helping to reduce the swelling of the lymph nodes and if not she wants to increase it even more. She also says we need to keep an eye on his quality of life because it is possible the cancer has spread a lot further than what we can see. So we increase the meds and pray it helps for awhile longer.

BTW - He is still a happy dog and as of now has a great quality of life.

Just like I watched and still watch Mia, I will now watch over you Chester. Your family and my family have been pals for a very long time. Our families have been friends when they had to send me, and KC to the Bridge and your family had send Tara and Bruno to the Bridge. Well, we are all sitting here together watching over both Mia and Chester.

We love you Chester.
