Mars is on a daily low-dose chemotherapy drug, chlorambucil, but the tumor seems to be growing. That's probably blood or clotted blood, so there must be some hemorrhage somewhere.

He went to his regular vet for a blood draw today and I really lost it. They know us there-knew my precious Wolf-so they are wise in their support. Not so many people know what to say when your dear dog is so sick-I just tried not to cry.

We'll see the oncologist next week and maybe change the drug. I just want to take care of him, but I may fail.

Oh MJ, I'm so very very sorry hugging

No matter what, he knows that you are taking care of him, and we all know that too. You cannot take on the responsibility of not curing cancer, that's just too huge. Even with all the decisions that you have made, you can't second think those either, because you got him this far, and there is never any crystal ball.

I understand the losing it part, but do know that this is not on you. This is on the cancer. F*ck cancer.

Please let us help you through this.

Mary Jane,
Care doesn't always lead to cure. I think the most difficult care to give but a very important one is the one with those challenges when things don't seem to be going how we had hoped. Mars is fortunate to have you to take care of him, to care so about him. I suspect he knows it, too.
Discouraging findings - they, well, are discouraging. Damn it.

I couldn't have said it better! I know its hard. I look at my Eli everyday and wonder what else can I do??? Sometimes we feel so helpless but the truth is we are doing our very best and that's all we can ask of ourselves. Mars is so lucky to have you and I know he knows it.

And don't worry about crying. I cry all the time now and I just don't care what others might think of it. I don't know where crying got such a bad rap. Its not a sign of weakness but rather a sign that we are human and there's nothing wrong with that.

Hugs and we are here for you!!!!

Again, my dear friends, thank you.

Our regular vet called today and was as clear as she could be-do not give up.

(I never considered that, but I felt a lot better).

Thursday we see the oncologist and maybe have another ultrasound.

You are giving me strength and I truly thank you.

MJ, just wanted you to know my thoughts are with you and Mars... The only thing I can recommend is looking into CBD oil. I've been studying it for a while and people are having really good luck with lots of health issues in animals. They say if you are fighting cancer, you need to use the CBD with THC, but unless you are in legal state, that would be problematic. But even people who are in states where it's not legal yet are using the Hemp oils (trace THC) and saying that it makes a huge difference in overall health, pain, stimulates eating - nothing but good things. Side effects are almost non-existent.

The vet society put out a memo to veterinarians warning them about recommending CBD, so our holistic vet here, after having her attorney review the matter, has stopped carrying and unless you have a vet that trusts who you are as a client, they may not discuss it with you. I was very sad and angry that they received that memo.

Best of luck today, thinking about you guys!

WE GOT A BREAK!

The tumor is as big as its maximum-but there are no detectable metastases on ultrasound or chest Xray.

Mars is starting carboplatin today with the intention (fervent hope) that it will arrest or reduce the tumor.

Your support carried us through this, yet again.

Just please help us going forward.

thank you,

Hi Rosa and Everybody,

My dear Prince (aka Mars) is here and there. Yesterday, when it was sunny, he ran-OK jogged- with David with great pleasure and ate a mixture of foods.

Today, rainy, not so good. Poor appetite and activity. Then again, he's sweet as sugar, highly interactive.

The rain stopped, so I am holding on for a bit more Mars.

You are so good for us, thanks.

MJ

Our Neilla is solar powered, she has more peep and energy when it is sunny outside, cloudy days she is really calm and laid back.

Hoping for more good days for Mars.

So nice that you have this time to spend with him while he is fighting this beast. Hang in there and be sure to take care of yourselves too!

I simply can't express how much your support means-thank you.

Marzipan is holding his own-not 100%-but he seems slowly more himself.

I'm so glad to hear Mars is doing better. Fingers are crossed that the new drug has a great effect and the tumor starts to shrink.
Keeping you and Mars in my thoughts and prayers. butterfly

Sounds like he is headed in the right direction, so that's definitely good news. He's a fighter.

OK, my friends we now have (occasional) ball playing AND find the toy! Mars' appetite is great, he is back to prancing (when the sun is shining), and he is very talky. We're really grateful for those good things.

David is concerned that he tires more quickly than usual and heart damage is one side effect of Adriamycin, so we'll see his regular vet Monday for a check-up.

thanks everybody-thanks a lot,
MJ
