I have some good news. I have B-cell Lymphoma opposed to T-cell, which means I have a better median-survival time. My enlarged lymph nodes on the sides of my neck have already gotten smaller, just like Dr. Shaw said they would.
My daily dosage of prednisone is being put in my food and since I'm so good at licking my bowl clean I haven't even noticed it. I guess I'm gonna be peeing alot and my parents were told to make sure they don't leave any human food unattended because I'll probably try to steal it. Not me, I don't do that stuff!
Dad took me for my usual walk this morning and then walked me to the dog park this evening. Mom brought the car a little bit later and because there were alot of cars out front she swung around and parked on the side street. Well, I left Dad's side and stood in the middle of the park with my nose up in the air because I recognized the sound of the car! When Mom stepped out of the car, I knew she was coming even though other cars were blocking my view and I started running towards the gate! I acted like I hadn't seen her in ages.
I saw my best pal Casey today. His Mom wondered where we had been as she hadn't seen us in awhile and we told her the news. She was sad but gave me a bunch of hugs and kisses and said we're all going to hope for the best. Then Casey and I wrestled like we always do because we're best pals. There were over a dozen dogs there today, including my little Pug friend, Lilly, who gave me a bunch of slobbery kisses!
Thanks for keeping me in your prayers.
Watching you closely and sending you angel kisses in your dreams.
We love you.

Well, if you have to have lymphoma, at least you got the better one as far as treating it goes! Keep taking your meds like the good boy that you are, and we'll keep sending prayers your way!
