Merry Christmas Eve........................

I thought I would take the time now and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.  We hosting friends for a nice sit down dinner so will be busy all day.

Ed had his 2nd Chemo treatment this past Monday and is doing well.  His lymphnodes are back to normal and his white count is also.  He is eating like a horse but has only gained 2lbs back.  The Vet and staff are optimistic!  It will be a Merry Christmas in our house, indeed!

May everyone have a Very Merry Christmas!

Fido Friday on Saturday

Getting Better Every Day..........

Ed had his first round of chemo this past Monday, his lymphoma is B cell, which is treatable.  He is doing good, eating and gaining weight (he was under 95lbs, down from 115lbs).  He did pick up a virus at the Vet similar to kennel cough.  The poor guy looked like a 6-year old with a runny nose.  But he seems to be getting over that AND hopefully has not passed it on to Lily.

We are very pleased with his progress.  He has 4 more chemo treatments, this Monday is Cytoxin, which is a baddie but we are hoping he tolerates it well.

Keeping our fingers crossed................................

Eddie Update

Eddie is doing much better.  He is eating good and the swelling in his face and limbs has subsided.  He still is a very tired boy getting worn out with a walk around the backyard.  But we are encouraged by his improvement.  We are hoping that we will learn today what type of Lymphoma he has and the course of treatment.  Most definitely we are hoping for the more treatable type.

Fido Friday

Our little boy Eddie is very sick. He had emergency surgery to have his enlarged and bleeding spleen removed.  He has lymphoma.  We don't which kind yet.  He's such a sweet boy and a clown. I am heartbroken.
