Hi all! I have been meaning to post for 2 weeks now; but just haven’t been in much of a computer kind of mood. Sorry!!
Spencer is still holding strong. We went 2.5 weeks ago for his 2nd treatment with the new chemo. I had a chance to talk with his oncologist then and to see his x-rays. The vet said that he still can’t even hear what he is seeing on the x-rays. So if Spencer hadn’t hurt his leg, prompting me to ask them to just peek at his lungs while doing x-rays, then we wouldn’t even know the cancer was back. Or maybe we would I guess, since we wouldn’t have started chemo back up. He seems to handle this one fine just like he did his last chemo. I am noticing that he throws up the day of the treatment, so starting this week they are going to give him a shot with some anti-nausea medicine in it at the time they start the chemo.
A few days ago he started coughing and it worried me; but the vet doesn’t think it is related to the cancer. He thinks instead it is just some good old allergies. We are having CRAZY weather here in the Atlanta area, things are already starting to bloom!
For the last 2 days Spencer hasn’t had his normal appetite. I’m not sure what is up with that. I think he is sleeping a little more than he used to; but anytime there is something to do he is eager to go and doesn’t seem to tire. So on a rainy day like today, I think he is going to be content to sleep most of the day; but if it was nice outside (he hates going out in the rain… for ANYTHING) I’m pretty sure he would perk up and be happy to go for a nice walk. His favorite time of the day is still school bus stop time. He loves walking down with me to get the kids off of the bus. 🙂
Just over a week ago we did get our family pictures done by Melissa Palomo. I just love how they turned out and can’t wait to see the full gallery!! I am so glad that she was able to come out to do our pictures and I know that these are going to be treasured by our family. The kids can’t wait to have the pictures on the walls. Melissa did an amazing job – my kids were being pills at times, and Spencer wasn’t always the best at following directions; but you’d never know it by looking at the pictures!
