More tomorrow,

I'm so hoping we can beat this!!! Will be waiting for more news tomorrow hugging

Much better chance of beating this than the one in the spleen.

There is that mushroom product that has shown some effectiveness against hemangiosarcoma. However you guys and the oncologist decide you may also want to look into ways to support him.

Keep us posted on your steps, i'm glad there is hope!

OK, not great but not as awful as possible. It's a huge tumor that invaded the muscle, making surgery unattractive. We are going with Adriamycin to shrink the thing, on general principles, and because I want a chance to remove some mass by surgery if it could help. A neck lymph node was suspicious so we got an aspirate for biopsy, metastasis there would be pretty grim. Otherwise, it doesn't look like the thing spread.

Overall, the oncologist gave him 4-6 months but I am not accepting that. I have been called Pollyanna.

I saw a few things about mushrooms, but I need to look further and digest what we're doing.

As might be expected, Mars is in a great mood. My job is to maintain that as long as I can.

thanks everyone, you're great,
MJ

They gave me 6-8 months to live in June 2013, remember? Don't go by those numbers. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. I just hope and pray that you two are blessed with many more healthy years together. hugging
