March 17th, 2011 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Yesterday Abby had a follow up with her oncologist to see how she was doing on the Palladia. Since she’s been doing well (only lost about 1/2 a pound and only had some fairly minor GI trouble), we decided to add in Cytoxan, Piroxicam and Lasix […]

Abby Update… & A Good Cause

February 23rd, 2011 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

As I noted in my last post, Abby started taking palladia on Wed, 2/16/11. She’s supposed to take it every M/W/F, along w/ Prilosec OTC every weekday to try to offset GI troubles. Well, she took her pills again on both Friday and this past Monday, but then Tuesday the diarrhea started in. I called […]

Starting Palladia

February 16th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

After a lot of research, and talking to folks on Tripawds.com and the bonecancerdogs listserv, we decided this weekend to go for it and try Palladia for Abby. I went with her today to get her baseline weight and blood cell counts and picked up the first batch of the drugs (plus the plastic gloves […]

It’s Official . . .

. . . the cancer has spread to Abby’s lungs. A few posts ago I mentioned a tiny “damn spot” that was picked up on her x-rays. Well, yesterday we had her 6-week follow-up x-ray, post the end of her rounds of carboplatin, and it confirmed that the spot is growing and is indeed a […]

Out, Damn Spot!

December 28th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Well, today Abby had her lungs rechecked for the first time since her amp/starting chemo. The news wasn’t totally bad, but it wasn’t totally good either. As you probably guessed from the title of this post, there was one spot that the oncologist was concerned about. He said that it is not something we should […]

Abby Updates

November 30th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Abby had her one month ampuversary yesterday, and her second round of chemo today. Hopefully her reaction to the chemo will be as minimal as last time. She certainly seemed to have tons of energy afterward! She did throw up a tiny bit this afternoon – but I think that was because the post-chemo popcorn […]

Appropriate Treat for a Tripawd

November 23rd, 2010 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

So, I go to get the dog a biscuit last night, and this is what comes out of the box: Yes, it’s a one-legged man cookie. Nice. Now, if I’d just had a limb amputated and someone handed me a handicapped gingerbread man, I think I’d fail to see the humor. I’d probably burst into […]

A Side Effect of The Side Effect

November 15th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

So, we are 5 days post Abby’s first chemo treatment and she’s still doing really well. Haven’t had to give her any of the anti-nausea medication and she hasn’t been sick at all. This weekend though, we did have to give her a bath, due to a side effect of a chemo side effect. We’ve […]
