Hi everyone, phone call came in from the cancer doc's office... turns out my dog has B-cell lymphoma. I guess that's a sigh of relief, as the T-cell type has a worse prognosis.
Tomorrow, will be Sara's second chemo treatment. Here's hoping that she continues to react well to it!

Quick update... Sara had her second chemo treatment (they were actually 4 pills taken once per day). The Dr was very surprised to see that all her lymph nodes were not swollen anymore. We told the Doc that the very next morning (after the first treatment) they were already severely reduced in swelling.
Based on physical inspection and blood work, the Doc said Sara's cancer is already in remission. I think that's news worth celebrating.

The chemo treatment must continue to run it's course. I just hope remission lasts a very long time.
