cytology on the fluids drawn from Petey’s chest last week confirms what we suspected — the lymphoma is back.
But, we’re not giving up yet. Regulan is helping with Petey’s nausea, so he’s eating a little better and has a little bit more of a spark in his eye. Of course, getting the liquid Regulan into him is no treat; I’m wearing almost as much as he’s ingested 🙂
Drs. Petey and Gil consulted with a couple of oncologists, and have come up with another protocol that might work. So, we’re going to try a lomustine (CCNU) protocol. One treatment every 3 weeks for 4 cycles, to start.
It’s a rescue drug with all the rotten side effects you’d expect, but it’s worth trying. At this point, we’re happy to still be in the fight.
Keep a good thought for my boy. He’d do the same for you, if he wasn’t a cat!
