Hi pals,

Dad took me to get some Vincristine again today. He met with Dr. Shaw afterwards and heard some good news. Last week, Dr. Shaw said that my white blood cell count was low, which was to be expected, but this week it's improved and is almost normal! So, I am tolerating the treatment well and my body is fighting off any infections, so far.

Dr. Shaw said I was doing good, that my physical exam showed that my mucous membranes were nice and pink, no signs of heart murmurs, my sinus rhythm is normal, lungs are clear, and that there were no masses or discomfort when they did the abdominal palpitation. They sure are a bunch of touchy-feely types!

Next Thursday I will get a different medicine called Adriamycin. That appointment will be a longer one but they already know that as long as they keep patting me I will be calm, but when I'm finished I'll be doing my usual "outta here" routine of dragging the nurse/tech to the front lobby for pickup.

I will get a picture taken of me with Dr. Shaw soon, maybe next week when Mom and Dad both take me for my treatment.

My condition will always be considered "guarded", but we'll take good news any day!


P.S. If you know how I can knock down the pet gate that is attached to the door of the cats' "dining" room, please leave me suggestions!

Thanks, Zaidie! I stick my nose against the door to the gate but it's latched so I can't open it! I might try throwing my body against it but I might get in big trouble!

Quincy, my motto is; If you can't go around or through it,you must go over it !! If you try it ,be careful,don't hurt yourself. xoxo

Hi Angels Autumn and Autumn! I have two Autumn Angels sending me good vibes!

I sure wish I could jump over that pet gate. I tried to stick my head through the little door at the bottom but only my head will fit through it.

Eddie, Sonny and I have wider heads. BOL

Thanks to all of you for checking up on me!

Thanks for the coolest gift ever! Those witches are cool! I've never had a rosette that talked before! As far as the gate goes...well, I've been practicing hurdles by jumping OVER Minka, she's tiny. Mommy gets nervous when I do that. I plan on practicing on Arli next. Perhaps try jumping small things until your ready to scale the gate...just make sure there's a good rug or carpet or when you land you'll keep sliding...right into a wall. I know. I'm good at sliding 'into' things...BOL Happy Halloween! Glad to read the good news on your Diary!
