Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

6 Months Post Chemo Check Up

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 11:55 pm on Friday, September 27, 2013

Off we went today to see the fine folks at The Animal Medical Center.  Jill had her 6 month post chemo check up (for those of you who aren’t counting that’s 6 months post chemo, 9.5 months post amputation, 15 months post diagnosis) today which meant the dreaded chest X-Ray.  Yet again, Jill decided she would give me a nice little scare RIGHT before an X-Ray.  Yes, just like back in March, a few days before this X-Ray, she decided to have a coughing fit.  Thanks for that Jill you little bugger.

Well, everything checked out BEAUTIFULLY.  Her oncologist is very pleased with how she is doing.  Lungs are crystal clear, weight is back up to normal.  She’s a happy and healthy kitty cat.  I honestly have not ever been as calm as I was before a chest X-Ray as I was this time.  I don’t know if it’s my new found “Keep calm and hop on” attitude or what it is, but she has just been acting so happy, healthy and bright eyed lately.  I just knew that cough was her giving me a run for my money.  But you can’t fool me little one!

So next up, she’ll have another chest X-Ray when we mark her one year ampuversary in December.  After that, her oncologist really thinks she’s “good” and we can start doing the X-Rays only once or twice a year. We know her case is quite different than other kittys with Osteosarcoma, so who really knows, but we’ll take it!

….and here is some video of her playing tonight 🙂
