Dear Diary,

Yesterday mom took me to the Dogtor and I had my first chemo and drug therapy. It was a shot of stuff for this first one and the Dogtor said the others that I have to have will be an IV. I am not sick at all from it, can you believe it!

Oh, and the Dogtor said that my large lymph thingies are getting smaller already from me taking those yucky Prednisone pills all week AND my blood test numbers are better, ARRROOOOO! He said that since he really likes how good I am doing and he expects that as long as I keep going to my treatments I will be in remission in no time!!

Mom sent emails to a bunch of places to see if she can get help paying for this stuff and has not heard back yet. Today she sent a bunch of letters out, too.

Anywho, that is the update for my first week. I still can't believe this is happening....

That's all for now, see you soon!

Love,

Binx
