Week 18 - Chemotherapy

Dad took me in for treatment today. My white blood cell count was good, better than last time, so I got Adriamycin. The cyst on my right side is the same size it has been so we'll continue to keep an eye on it.

Dr. Shaw said the thinning hair on my tail and hind end is likely due to the long-term chemo I've been receiving. He said some dogs lose more hair than others and after I finish the program it'll probably grow back and be like puppy fur! He also said I was doing really good and remain in complete remission. We like to hear that at the end of every visit.

Today was week 18 of treatment, so I have 4 more treatments before I reach week 26, the end of this program. What happens after that? I'll go see Dr. Shaw for monthly checkups at first and then if things continue to look good I'll go every three months or so. If any changes are noticed during that time, I'll get treatment as needed.

My parents are just happy I have done so well. Sure is better than when they were told last September that without treatment I would not be here for no more than maybe 1-2 months. So, if all that's happened to me so far is some abnormal heaving which didn't even really make me sick, and some hair thinning, we'll take it!

Thanks for your continued doggie POTPs and kitty purrs. Happy Valentine's Day!
