I went back to the South Texas Veterinary Specialists today for my CBC and 2nd round of chemo. CBC came back with my liver enzymes high so Dr. Harris wanted to do a ultrasound. Mom said ok since she wanted to make sure the cancer hasn't metastasized to my liver. It came back all good everything within normal range, not metastasizing, but the high enzymes were from an adverse reaction to the chemo I took 3 weeks ago. I can't take it any more, but the vet gave me another drug (hydroxyurea) to take daily. YAY! Another pill, just in case I didn't have enough already with the bajillion I'm already taking! BOL (Oh yeah, she also added another pill to help my liver and gallbladder!) Bad news is I have to have my CBC done EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK! ACKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!

Unfortunately when they did my ultrasound, they shaved me. Mom thought it would be just a little and when she came to pick me up it was almost from side to side. So now I'm 3/4 nekked!! OMD!! Mom felt I would get cold, so she put one of her tank tops on me and it fits perfect.

Other than that, I'm doing pretty good. This is a lot for this old girl to take on, but I'm tough and I can do it! I have the eye of the tiger and you're going to hear me ROAR. (Lyrics from Katie Perry) BOL :)
