The news today wasn't good. In fact, I'm not sure that we've had a single oncologist appointment that has involved good news. K's lung tumors are growing fast. Her leg is very swollen and sore but the oncologist isn't sure why. It could be that the bone cancer is stirring again (but it's not obvious on x-ray yet) or it could be tissue damage.
We're taking what the oncologist calls a "shot in the dark" and trying a new drug that has worked to slow tumor growth in some very aggressive cases of other canine cancers. As the oncologist put it, "we have nothing to lose". I hate to admit it but she's right.
Despite K's pain when she walks around the house, she ran like this in the meadow yesterday. She looked almost like a puppy.
