Jet Finished Chemo

Jet received his last Doxorubicin yesterday, and our oncologist is quite optimistic.  Still no visceral tumors apparent, and nothing growing at the site of his original tumor.  Since hemangiosarcoma is so fast growing and so aggressive, these are very good signs.  He tells me that hemangio successfully treated with Doxo yields a median survival time of 1,000+ days.  Yay!

Casey is also doing well.  He put his puppy on for our walk last night, bounding ahead of us up the drive and down the street (he doesn’t walk with a leash anymore . . . the pacing just doesn’t work).  Bode gets upset when Casey is in the lead, so he bit his remaining arm to tackle him.  Casey face-planted, got up, and continued on.

I’ve been a little worried about Casey.  He seems short of breath quickly, and his breathing can get a little raspy, but there was none of that last night.  His appetite is also great, and that’s a very good sign.  We’re now over 8 months from diagnosis, and his ampuversary will be on the 29th.
