Today Jill had a check up at the oncologist after being on metronomic Leukeran (Chlorambucil) for 3 weeks.  First up was the chest X-Ray.  The oncologist thought it looked A-OK, but doesn’t like to give the “all clear” until she has the radiologist look at it.  So I had to sit and sweat it out until he got around to it SEVEN HOURS LATER!  Bottom line, he agrees, ALL CLEAR.  PHEW!  What beautiful lungs you have Miss Jilly:

Next up was blood work and physical exam.  Physical exam was great, she looks perfect (obviously!).  Blood work.  Well….no surprise here…..WBC, neutrophils and lymphocytes all low, but nothing too low that we need to stop the leukeran.  So we continue on.  She will have blood work now once a month to make sure all her levels remain ok and another chest x-ray in 6 months (I’ll never make it that long…….but we’ll see!).

She has been a bit lethargic since starting the Leukeran, but the oncologist says it’s probably just a side effect and as long as she’s eating, using the litter box and grooming herself, she’s ok, unless its so bad I want to stop it.  For now, I think we’ll keep on keepin’ on!

By the way, I have NEVER seen Jill as nervous as she was today.  Maybe she knew she had a big test today!  I swear I was behaving totally normal.  She was panting like crazy on the way to and from the hospital.  Never seen her do that before!  And she is totally POOPED TONIGHT!!!!! Ta Ta for now…..must go rub this exhausted kitty’s belly….

GREAT! YA HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WONDERFUL NEWS! Sigh of relief from all the tripawd world!

Of course she was panting…..she’s been starring in her own video, doing press conferences, signing pawtographed, studying for her test, doing wardrobe changes, fittings, etc. Then you stick her in a cab without her own private escort, paparazzi all over the place……WHEEEW! The price of fame is exhausting!

That Jill is a cat who really knows how rest and relax after a whirlwind day!

It was really nice to have good news today:-) 🙂

Lots of love,

Sallt and Happy Hannah
