Well I must say all the popping my friends have done has helped.

Although I am far from being out of the woods, there is still some hope

Mom and Dad took me to the oncologist yesterday really expecting that all my options were gone. But they were suprised when the Vet said we still have options.

It was evident to her that my treatments were no longer working, but she says there are others we can try..

So now i am on a new protocol...It is a stronger drug that Is only given every 3 weeks..It has its pros and cons...

The worst con is that it can effect the liver so I will have to have my liver enzymes monitored weekly

The best pro is that it is easier on the digestion so that I should be able to eat more of the foods I like without getting the squirts...

Mom is not getting her hopes up too much, but is very grateful that at least I will have more time to be with her and Dad

Ask Mu to get some Milk Thistle capsules... and take a couple a day... It really helps support the liver and kidneys...

Sending love and HUGSSSSSSS

don't let anything get you down! If another type to help and you can afford it, do it! I hopes that you don't come here yet, so I will keep my paws together for you and ask the almighty to give you more time with the mom & dad.
