Week 14 - Chemotherapy

Before I paw my next paragraph, I want to say that I'm still in complete remission and doing good!

Dr. Shaw discovered a little cyst near my right abdomen/chest today during my physical exam. It's the size of a garbanzo bean. BOL! It was aspirated and there was only blood, so that was a good thing. We'll be monitoring it for any changes and I'll be getting Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) pills this week at home just like I have before. Then I go back for treatment in a couple of weeks for another "reduced" dosage of Vincristine because it was after that drug that my white blood cell count got so low I couldn't be treated at the next visit. Plus, I had those heaving episodes.

We are really pleased with how thorough Dr. Shaw and the staff have been with my treatment and the great job they're doing looking out for me.

Oh, did I tell you I've been dieting and lost five pounds? I think it's that little bit of running I've been doing with Mom at night and the canned unsalted green beans I've been getting with half a can of wet food instead of a whole can, and my kibble. I'm a big boy and losing some weight will be good for my hips!

Happy boy,

Thats super great news Quincy!! I think me and Austin both need to lose some weight...we'll have mom get us some green beans too. One of our friends said their mom breaks their treats in half rather than giving them the whole thing. Mom needs to try that too.
