Cali will be 20 months post amputation on 9/7/15 and just hit 5 months post Lymphoma diagnosis last week.
My last update spoke about an ultrasound. While on vacation, the options 'gained' from an ultrasound were not worth the risks so the ultrasound was no longer necessary.
The monoclonal antibody treatment was not working and all the chemotherapys we've tried recently have either made her very ill or done nothing. And those that made her ill only 'sort of' worked. This is the problem with T-cell Lymphoma..resistance is high and fast.
So we have stopped all treatments and tests and her oncologists fully supported this decision. Cali will live out her days on our couch enjoying doing what she loves. the symptoms we combat are nausea and lethargy and she is on 4 medications to counter the nausea. she has good days and bad days which is what the oncologist told us to expect. This was not an easy decision and we will never know if it was the 'right' decision. But we feel it is the best decision.
On a recent good day, we took her, Cody and Roxi to a local dog festival at Blue Bee Cidery. she still has that therapy dog thing. This little girl rubbed on her and snuggled with her for a long time.
