I just wanted to give my pals an update. My lymph nodes have gone down some, but not completely, over the last few days, so a bit of relief for now.
A few days ago when I wrote in my diary, the nodes had gotten so big around my neck it weighed the bottom sides of my mouth down, so you can understand why my parents were so upset. My walks had to be shortened because I would get out of breath and walked slower than usual.
We have to take things day by day though, as I'm breathing a little heavier than normal, but better than a few days ago.
I am still refusing to eat my regular dog food. My parents went out and bought me a couple of different cans of food to try like Taste of the Wild---forget it! Waste of money if you ask me, just give me chicken!
So, I've been eating bowls of freshly cooked chicken, sometimes with rice. Treats and chew bones are good too. The main thing is I have an appetite and act hungry, even if just for chicken. Let's just say I've got my parents trained!
My output has been good and I'm still whopping my tail around. I still whine when my Dad leaves the house and when I hear him pull into the garage I get up and stand by the door waiting to greet him. And, I'm doing much better on my walks and even brought home a couple of tennis balls to add to my collection.
Dad officially starts his new job on Monday and informed them I have a doctor's appointment on the 24th, and the guy said, "No problem, you just take care of Quincy!"
I'm gonna be famous at Dad's new job, you just wait and see!
Oh, and some of my kitties are finalists in the World's Coolest Dog and Cat Show: Pebbles (Captivated Cat), Reebok (Stretch & Yawn), Joy (Craziest Tail), and Melody (two categories, Playful and Daredevil)! I was also very excited to see several of my dog pals in the finals and wish them all good luck!
Thanks for your continued prayers as I can still use them.
Quincy, we're glad the lymph nodes went down but am sorry you're breathing is a little heavier. How cool is that, that your dad's new job will allow him to take care of his boy! That is so wonderful! Know that your and your pawrents are always in our thoughts and prayers.

Congrats to your kitty siblings. It's great to see our friends as finalists, and of course, our friends' kitty siblings.
Keep eating up your chicken and enjoy every moment with your family.
We're thinking of you often.
In fact, Dad was watching Mom's niece play tennis yesterday and a few balls rolled by. Dad picked one up and started telling Mom about how much you love to find tennis balls on your walks.
Keeping enjoying those special moments. We send our love as always.
Your pals, Riley, Caileigh and Dad
