The last thing I want if for his leg to swell again once he's off the Clava. The boy needs to get outside and run around. 5 weeks now of being pretty cooped up. Neither one of us like it.
Let us know what Dr. Vancil says. I bet Andy and you are stir crazy!

Hope that Andy gets on okay at his appointment today. I bet he cannot wait to get outside and go on an adventure with you, hopefully that will be very soon!

ANDY CHEMO - 1 Year & 3 Weeks

Thanks ya'll

Here's Andy's oncology report below. As you can see, we're going to discontinue the Prednisone. Andy's muscle mass has been going down a lot, much of that due to the Prednisone, and some to old age. With the arthritis and other orthopedic issues he has, it's most important to get his legs and toes and joints feeling well so he can have fun. Another 3 weeks of recuperation to go, making for 2 months since he hurt his paw. His ankles are both the same temperature now. This is good. His last antibiotic is tomorrow. Hopefully, the infection won't return.

Dr. Vancil said when he squeezed on Andy's left toes (on the pad he injured in October), Andy didn't react at all. Maybe some neuralgia. So, Andy will be starting a new drug once he's weaned off the Prednisone to help his joints and give him some relief from the effects of old age and arthritis.

We'll also be stretching out the CeeNU dosages to once every 6 weeks. Dr. Vancil doesn't want the cancer to get used to it, also to help Andy's liver. Which discontinuing the Prednisone will help with as well.

If there is a place near you that offers it, use of an underwater treadmill can help to rebuild muscle mass, without stressing arthritic joints. With luck, you might also find a "canine fitness center" that has an indoor heated swimming pool for dogs, with people who are trained to help older/injured dogs swim safely. This is also excellent therapy for aging joints. Let me know if you need help finding these facilities.

Hugs, prayers, and warm wishes for the holidays to you, your family, and Andy.
