Hi friends! Yesterday was our 3 week ampuversary and we spent It at our oncology follow up at A&M. Everyone is still so impressed with bad@$$ bad@$$ LEROY super bulldog! His margins from his hemipelvectomy were better than originally thought 🙌🙌. We are still waiting on results for the histopathology for the ilium (words I dont understand but has somemthing to do with the pelvic bone cancer growth). Should know by tomorrow. 🤞
Going forward we have decided to do metronomic chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide (every other day indefinitely) and rimadyl, plus a diuretic on the days he takes the cyclo. The Metronomics seems to have minimumal side effects (we haven’t started yet, but will keep you posted), and will help prevent any metastasis and keep any “hidden” cancer cells in the blood stream at bay. From the research I did while on A&Ms WI-FI, Metronomics is about learning how to live with cancer as something like diabetes or heart disease. It wasn’t a difficult decision for us to take this route. Even though we had clean margins in our amp, and soft tissue sarcomas are slow to metastasize, this is Leroys best option.
Pending the histopathology iIlium, if It is not good we will be looking at 20 radiation sessions within a month. Praying we don’t have to do the radiation route, but we will if we have to. I will Airbnb a place so I can be with him during the time. If anyone knows a pet friendly or has an airbnb there, im your client!
Leroy is so thankful for all of your love! We are dropping off tripawd info packets at his daycare/vet office tomorrow to inform more people about Tripawds! Leroy’s dad is so excited to take him to daycare tomorrow because they love and have missed leroy so much. Don’t worry, he normally just stays behind the desk so he wont be over active. I know he is excited to see his daycare fam!
Thanks again for all the support and love! And here are some of our best pics of the coolest dude!
