Week 24 - Chemotherapy

My white blood cell count was checked today and it was good enough for me to get Vincristine. It's the chemo that makes my white blood cell count get low sometimes. The medical term is called neutropenia. They told my Dad that I'm always a good boy even though I can't wait until it's over so I can go home.

My report card today still says I am in complete remission, but Dr. Shaw said my ear stinks! Well, he didn't really say it that way but I may have a yeast type of infection in my ear so I'm going to see my regular vet on Saturday.

I've been listing my treatments by week only because that is the way they have my schedule printed out, even if they are not actual weeks. It's been easier for us to check the list off that way. So this means my final treatment with Adriamycin will be postponed until April 16th, as long as my white blood cell cont is adequate!

I forgot how to retrieve balls already. BOL! Actually, now I "only" do it for Casey's Mom, which is even funnier. Casey loves to retrieve balls so most of the time I just let him do all the work.

My tail is looking a bit scrawny but who cares as long as I can wag it!

Love,
Quincy

Hi Quincy! Great report this week! :) We are so happy you are still in remission! :) HEHE, Quincy, we will never understand non-retrieving retrievers! Did Cosmo like to retrieve? I learned by watching Eddie. He is the MASTER retriever. :) We love you Quincy, and are glad you are feeling great!
XOXO and Happy Easter!
Eddie & Sonny Easter Bunny
