Thank you for the update. It really has been such a rollercoaster for you and Hannah, you've had so many obstacles to overcome - you two are such an inspiration!

Glad that Hannah is doing well though and hope that you have a great weekend together

Chemo does slow hair regrowth - so I'm trying really hard to be patient, since Hannah's not bothered by it. The oncology surgeon said she looks like a patchwork quilt
Barkley didn't get that drug, but he just experienced the thinning fur and slow regrowth. He also experienced something that isn't very common but happens- hyperpigmentation of the skin. It concerned me very much when it started, and it was probably more visible because of the thinner coat.

Have a good weekend!

Hannah is so very lucky to have you watching over her and fighting for her!

From all that I have read and been told by humans who have been through it, having side effects increase after repeated rounds of chemo is to be expected, almost in the way that allergies get worse over time if left untreated. It doesn't mean that she is sicker or that the chemo isn't working, but rather that her body recognizes the toxin that all chemo substances are and is fighting to be rid of it.

Holding Hannah and you in my thoughts and prayers,
Lucy

Thank you all for the good weekend wishes It's to be quite nice here, so I hope we can enjoy relaxing with maybe a few errands thrown in. Plus, we'll be celebrating Andy's 1 year anniversary

As long as her blood work is ok and we don't have any problems, she is due to have chemo every 3 weeks. They are suggesting 6 rounds of chemo which means she should finish up at the end of February. They'll restage her at the halfway point (in January) which means an abdominal ultrasound and x-rays again. After the last round, we'll reassess and decide the plan from there.

Brought to us by the letters G and H made me laugh out loud, too.

I really hope you two have a great weekend, too. I'm planning to just hang out with Tee, too.
