Cancer Updates - Week 3


An update for our cancer post, check here to read about it.

We went back on Monday to have our CBC levels rechecked and they were still not high enough to receive chemotherapy so we did not received chemo that day.  We went back again today (February 18th) to recheck the levels and we haven't heard back yet.  Our vet didn't come in until later so we probably won't hear anything until tomorrow.  

Added February 21st:  His levels were high enough so we gave him his chemo of two capsules on Friday morning, then one capsule every morning for 3 days.

He loves going to the vet so it's no big deal.   He actually loves going wherever, he's not particular.  

Everything so far has been covered by a pet insurance, yay for pet insurance!

No real changes in personality or appetite.  He's still a pig, still hyper, and still destructive.  He's pretty cute though and the baby loves him.

Cancer Update - Week 2

An update for our cancer post, check here to read about it.

Today would have been our second chemotherapy appointment.  However when we went in they ran the CBC and the counts were not high enough so we go back Monday to have the levels rechecked.  We did get lots of loving from all the people in the office, he is kind of an attention hog so it happens a lot.

Everything today was covered by a pet insurance, yay for pet insurance!

No real changes in personality or appetite.  He's still a pig and is still hyper and destructive.

Here's a picture on our way to the vet (don't worry the car was stopped, the light was too perfect to not take a picture in the car).  Plus, it was way too cold to be outside taking pictures.  Collar is by Collar Mania.

A cancer update...

An unfortunate update on one of our "bloggers"




In October 28, 2014 our Boston Terrier mix was diagnosed with lymphoma.  We went in for yearly blood work and ended up coming back on the office's surgery day to have a biopsy done (photo is at the very end of the stitches if anyone is interested, it's not that gory and trust me, I do NOT do blood or anything gory).  The biopsy results were supposed to take 10-14 days, we had the results back in less than a week and it was a confirmed diagnosis of lymphoma.  We immediately set up an appointment with the specialist and began chemotherapy that day.  Fast forward to May 2015 we made it through chemo every week or every other week to achieve a diagnosis of the cancer being in remission.


An image from our first go with chemo...


February 6, 2016 we received the unfortunate diagnosis via needle aspiration that the lymphoma was back.  I already knew it was back, I just knew.  We have already begun chemo and we will try and update weekly with how everything is going and hopefully end with a blog post that he is in remission.


We do have pet insurance through Healthy Paws.  They were rated the best Pet Insurance in 2014, 2015, and 2016.  They have a phone app so all you have to do is snap a picture of the invoice from your veterinary visit and they take it from there.  It's simple and easy to use.  The process the claim and we get a check in the mail.   We have an annual deductible of $250 and unlimited lifetime benefits so no cap on how much they will pay out.   Feel free to check out Healthy Paws and get a quote by heading over here.
