Health Update

So, I am still eating well. Unfortunately, I am still getting weaker. I was a little perkier yesterday, but I went back downhill today. This isn't entirely bad yet though- if the cancer is indeed making me weak, it may take a little while for improvement to be seen. When I had my first chemo treatment, I got worse for a day or two before I got better, because the chemo was already making me weak, but the cancer hadn't gone away enough yet for it to look like a net improvement. Mom will probably call the vet tonight after checking in on me upon her return home from work. She might call the vet sooner though, she hasn't decided yet.

Thanks so much for all your purrs, it means a LOT to me!

Hey Texie

I just managed to get Meowmie to check the cat blogosphere and we saw you were having a rough time of it. Boy, those chemo drugs can be tough...I know that you are getting some great advice and support from the Lymphoma group, they are a great bunch of people and very knowledgable, so don't be afraid to investigate any of their suggestions with your vet.

Are you taking any new tablets for anything? The reason I ask is because Stormie was lucky and had a pretty good run with her chemo with little side-effetcs, but there was one week when she was feeling rough, we thought her cancer had come back - turned out she was having a reaction to a new appetite stimulant that she had been given! When we stopped giving her the tablet, she perked right up! This also happened with an anti-biotic she had too.

We are thinking of you so much and sending you soooooooo many positive thoughts and healing vibes little Texie. Give your Beans a hug from us xxx
