March Sucks

Postby Kahlie » Fri Mar 11, 2011 2:09 pm

I've been a superbly paranoid mother to Jasper, past 2 years, after his lymphoma diagnosis.
Last March, I was looking to eagerly share how he's been trouble free, only to diagnose a torn (or two) cruciate, which couldn't be mended because of his estimated time in remission (not long)... So, that was a bust..

This March, I was soo looking forward to update everyone that all's well. And it isn't.
Nearly to the day, he's out of remission. Waiting on cytology to confirm, but it's likely I'm right.
Unfortunately, the initial prognosis of "penis gland" was mentioned, and I had to urge to actually take a closer look. That always confuses me. But, I guess as his mom, I know him better?

So, as it stands....we're likely to start chemo next week, pending confirmation on cytology...

Just thought I'd updated, to any curious...

I knew full well what was going on, anticipated it for a few weeks... managed to convince vet of it. And still, when she came back with "I don't have good news" it was like a Mack truck hit me.

Thanks Ilovethepits

Cytology results came back, to confirm what I anticipated: Jasper's had a relapse, lymphoma's back.
We start treatment tomorrow morning...and am researching additional holistic treatments to tack on to conventional chemo...
Cancer sucks. I'd like to :switch:
