An Awesome Pup and His Human

Another Day in the Life of Roscoe…

Right after the last treatment, I called my regular vet’s office (who is staying in close contact with the oncologist).  I asked the tech to have her give me call back if she wanted the post-chemo chest x-ray the next day or at the 10-14 day mark, to coincide with post-chemo labs/bloodwork.  She opted for imaging at the 10-14 mark.  The suspense has been distracting.

I dropped Roscoe off yesterday morning, and as I transferred the lead, he jumped up on me, gifting me a small scratch (in an apparently very vascular part of my forearm).  I knelt down and gave him a reassuring hug and kiss on the side of his mouth.  After the hug and a kiss, he happily trotted back into the treatment area.  I left the vet’s office, wondering….  and waited…


And waited…

The phone rang in early afternoon, “Roscoe is ready.  There is no need for Vitamin K on this round.  Neutrophils are in the normal range.  The oncologist said we’ll continue with the next two rounds of Carboplatin, and re-image the chest in three months;”  The implication is that the chest x-ray is clear.  He can finish the chemo, and is still a candidate for the osteosarcoma vaccine…

Again, I’m thankful for another day in the life of Roscoe.
