Time to be thankful

Cali started not eating well over the last few weeks.  It had us concerned so, after consulting with her oncologist, we bumped up her 1 year check up a few weeks.  We took her in this week for a full work up; X-rays and bloodwork.
To our extreme relief, her X-rays were completely clear and her bloodwork is normal.  She is just getting picky in her old age. 
So we are going to celebrate a lot this holiday season.  She is officially one year post-amputation on January 7th.  But we are going to have a big party for  her on December 31st (just for her...sure it is!). 
She seems to be taking this news well.
 We are starting her on 'metronomic Chemotherapy' which is basically a REALLY low dose chemotherapy given orally every day to 'tick' at the cancer that may exist.  Our next goal..her birthday March 17th when she will be 12.
 We leave for our annual whirl wind holiday family visiting next weekend. It will be Cody's first time meeting the mini horses.  Should be entertaining.

I'm very relieved that her X-rays and bloodworm were normal! The low dose chemo sounds like a good choice, and having a big party on Dec 31 is a great idea. Maybe the whole world will celebrate with you!

Way to go Cali. Stella and Jaime are cheering you on. Better rest up for your family visits, and the big end of the year party in your honor.
