Today Molly’s CBC was normal. Her chest radiographs were unremarkable. And because of this,Molly received her third dose of carboplatin without complication. Molly returns to Southeast Veterinary ncology (SEVO) in three weeks for her “graduation” dose of carboplatin.

While at SEVO today we had the chance to meet others who are going through the same thing we are. What a great group of people!!!!!!!

It’s been 10 days since Molly’s first chemo treatment and no problems at all. Yesterday we had her in the yard with her buddy, Morry, and she actually chased him around the yard a bit. She also took off after a squirrel. And today she “insisted” on going for a walk. The blogs we read on this site inspired us to go through with the decision to have Molly’s leg amputation and to begin chemotherapy. We can learn so much from our pets. Thanks to everyone who share their stories (we’ll try to do better sharing Molly stories).

And the responses encouraging us to hang in there are so appreciated. So far, it’s been worth it. We’re winning the battle and if things continue like this, we will have Molly around for a lot longer.

So far, no problems following chemotherapy yesterday.  Today Molly joined us in the yard and is actually moving around quite a bit.


First Chemo Treatment

July 2nd, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Molly continues to amaze us. We drove to Jacksonville this morning for her first dose of chemotherapy (carboplatin). While there they also removed stitches and staples from her surgery All went well and we were on our way home by 1:30. She continues to have a smile on her face and continues to wag her tail. Staff and anyone else who is at SEVO when Molly comes just love her, and (of course) she loves everyone.

A good day. Only 3 more treatments to go.

It’s now been a week and a half since Molly’s leg was amputated.  Last Friday she popped a stitch, so we had to take her back to Dr. Winters’ office to have that taken care of.  Then, over the weekend her wound started seaping – a lot.  We took her in to have Dr. Winters look at the wound to make sure everything was OK.  Of course, he wound wasn’t seaping when we took her in.  He examined the wound and said it was healing nicely and explained that there was more than likely a pocket where blood collected following surgery, and that is probably was seaping through the wound. 

She continues to eat and drink, and has no problem going outside to do her business.  She is still somewhat of a couch potatoe though.  She’s currently on Novox and Tramadol for any pain she may be having. 

On Friday we take her to SEVO for her first chemotherapy treatment.
