Week 16 - Chemotherapy

Today I did NOT want to go into the hospital for my treatment. Dad had to walk inside the building first and encourage me to follow him, so I decided I didn't feel like playing tug-o-war and went in. And I was the happiest boy when he came back to take me home!

I received Vincristine today even though my white blood cell count was mildly low. The cyst I talked about also refilled with blood but they said we don't have to think about removing it unless it gets bigger.

I have to take a new pill called Trimethoprin, which is an antibiotic to prevent infection, along with Metoclopramide (for nausea and vomiting) and Metronidazole (for when my poop decides to run loose). We regularly stock the last two.

My appointment day will now be every other Friday instead of Thursday! Dr. Shaw is now going to another practice on Thursdays. We had an option to switch doctors but Fridays are one of my Dad's off days as well, so we'll switch.

I am doing good. I enjoy my toys, my walks, my dog park pals, food, and my rawhides, which I collect and carry around the house. And I love my pals here who have been supporting me. My tail wags hard---just ask the cats because they get slapped in the face with it alot, and they slap it back!

I think my parents will always have some worry about this whole thing, but they are just glad I am still around and so am I.

Yeah Quincy, Pawrents are like that...always worrying about us. But its when they stop worrying when we need to be concerned.

We're so glad you're still around too. We want to celebrate many, many more birthdays with you...we want to get to those 2 digit numbers!! ;o)

Your Pals,
Doo & Austin
