We had another kitty emergency on Thursday, this time with my kitty sister Joy. She had to have emergency surgery to remove an obstruction in her small intestine. It was a hard hairball around two inches long, and it was causing her to vomit and not eat and needed to be removed immediately. She came back home yesterday and is being nursed back to health at home.
In the meantime, I did get cleared for treatment yesterday with the drug Vincristine. The next dose is supposed to be Adriamycin. That will be my 6th dose of that drug and additional doses of it are associated with increased risk for toxicity to the heart and heart failure.
There are other drugs we can use in place of it thereafter or add in another drug (Zinecard) to help protect the heart from the toxic effects of the Adriamycin. We'll have another talk with my oncologist next week to decide what we'll do.
Happy 4th of July to all my pals and thank you for your gifts and continued prayers.
sending you, and your whole family, love and prayers
