We're happy to report that not only is Widget doing very well with her chemotherapy, the oncologist confirmed for us last week that Widget's lymphoma is probably in remission -- and if it's not, "it's pretty darn close." We had noticed even after Widget's first week of treatment how much her lymph nodes had shrunk. That first week, ironically, turned out to be the only really rough week she had with the treatment. Once we got through it, and adjusted/added to her gastrointestinal meds, the second week was a lot better, and she's been cruising ever since. In fact, she no longer even needs most of her GI meds.
She's still fussy about what she wants to eat. Fortunately, however, there is one food she will always eat, and that's our cooked ground goat. She will turn her nose up at freshly cooked ground beef, but offer her the goat, and she chomps away. So while the rest of the menu is constantly evolving depending on her whim-of-the-day, the goat is something she will never pass by.
Sleep-eat-sleep-potty-sleep-eat-sleep. It's a grueling schedule. Meanwhile:
By the way, notice how all the dog beds and blankets we use to carefully cover up the once-white Ikea chair cushions are rearranged for someone's maximum comfort?
