Liza's A New Girl Now

Chemo treatment #2!

So it’s been a few weeks since my last post, so I wanted to update… Things around here are hectic with Spring here finally!!!

Last week we had a minor (slightly expected) hiccup in Liza’s chemo plan. Her white cell count was normal, but low, and the oncologist decided not to treat her in order to not dip the level. Welp, new bloodwork this Wednesday revealed that her counts were up and ready for her treatment today!

So another jaunt down to Columbus, Oh to see the wonderful staff at OSU! She really does her car rides – doesn’t matter if it’s around the block, to her Grandparents house in PA, or a trip for treatment. Her brother, of course, was jealous as could be that he couldn’t come along!

Chemo treatment #2 was a success, and she had a great time pulling Heather down the long hallways! On a side note, she is faster on 3 legs in a sprint than I am – so that’s pretty embarrassing. So after her working out of the staff, we traveled the long way back to Cleveland and were welcomed home by Cooper. He was very excited to see her, but remained out of her business and let her just relax for a few hours.

She’s been running the fences with our neighbors dogs (especially Ms. Phoebe) now that the weather is warmer. Although I swear she look around for a minute when I open the sliding glass door and lets out a sigh when there is no snow to eat!

She is down to a svelt 117 lbs, and I’m looking to get a few more off her to help with her joints and muscles. But she loves her diet (raw) and is progressing really well!

She is resting peacefully in her (our) bed, and probably going to sleep very well this evening.

    Does she get sick or lose her hair from the chemo?

    I’m just starting this awful journey as this Tuesday my Saint is scheduled to have his hind limo removed.
    How soon did you start chemo after the operation?

    Nothing yet has spread to lungs…

    Thank you in advance.

    Awww! Gorgeous girl! Glad to find someone who also has a mastiff that is on the same timeline (or close to it). My Doxie goes in Monday for her second round of chemo. Good luck you both!
