Today I completed the University of Wisconsin - Madison Lymphoma Protocol from Veterinary Medical Services (VMS) and received a dose of Adriamycin. It was the longest appointment ever at four hours because they were very busy today, so I was there from 7:30am-12:30pm. My parents hung around the area the entire time.
Upon graduation, I received a blue VMS scarf but Dr. Shaw pointed out that I have three small oral papules (nodules) around my mouth. They are to be monitored for growth or the formation of new ones, so I have an appointment in two weeks to have them biopsied because I have to be anesthetized for it and couldn't have both things done today.
I won't be going to the dog park for awhile and may not be able to play with my best friend Casey either. Bummer. The kitties should be okay.
We are still happy I have done so well these past months, though Dr. Shaw said the lymphoma will likely come back at some point but we'll deal with that when the time comes. What he said was not a surprise to my parents.
Mom was at the Happy Go Lucky pet boutique at our local mall and bought me two new toys--a rubber bottle of Mountain Drool and Coiffure Du Chien Chewy Breederer Crispaw! Then the owner of the store gave me a pink kitty bungee toy which I've already destuffed! Pictures will be added to my page.
Woofs of thanks and love to all my pals who have been supporting me through chemo!
Have a drink on me!
