*Dada’s Note: Dennis had his second post-radiation follow-up this week. The palliative radiation treatment appears to have been a success at alleviating the pain from his osteosarcoma, allowing him a greater range of motion and putting the trot back in his step. Although no one can say how long the pain relief will last (and we are already making plans for dealing with it when it returns), the oncologist pronounced himself “very pleased” with Dennis’s condition, and so are we. His next follow-up will be in six weeks.
Dada’s Note: Thank you all for the Power of the Paw! Yesterday evening and again early this morning, Dennis deposited his first solid, decent-looking “contributions” to the backyard in days. Here’s hoping he has turned the corner on his latest flareup of IBD and can get back to gaining weight and feeling better from his radiation therapy.
