Stage 1

That it is a thief.

That I am stronger than cancer; it may take my life but it won't take my joy.

Homemade meals with powerhouse, immunity-boosting, cancer-fighting food. Also Cannabis Oil, Vit C tabs, Maitake mushrooms, phytoplankton, olive oil, coconut oil, ACV, curcumin, Artemix, IP6 tabs.

Side (by rib) and lung

I love banana cake :)

Be as active as you can. Make memories.

You don't know the future; be present in today.

July 27

Yes. 3 weeks after the first round of 5 x chemo infusions were completed.

Swelling above left carpal, limping. My vet had just lost her dog to osteosarcoma so took no chances - straight in for an xray, which suggested it could be bone cancer, so immediately referred to a Vet Oncologist (Dr Terry) who took bone biopsies and did body scan. Scan showed no spread of cancer. Results received 16 April 2018 that it was bone cancer; shoulder and leg amputated 17 April. Surgery site got infected, which delayed chemo for a week. Chemo finished 27 July. Unfortunately cancer returned, found lump on my wide 3 weeks after chemo finished. Scan showed 2 nodules in my lung, too. Lump on side removed surgically (vet said it just "peeled" away, not attached to the rib). Had further chemo infusion (Doxorubicin) which finished 19 October, plus "home" chemo/meds (continuous). Scan while getting Doxorubicin showed lung nodules had halved in size. Will have another scan on 21 December 2018.

Left front leg and shoulder amputated on 17 April 2018.
