An Update On Darcy


Recommended Posts

I've not said anything over the past few weeks because I wanted it to be very low key (don't know why - just felt more comfortable that way) but Darcy has been having a few blood tests because she's dropped some weight. It's not been a sudden weight loss but it has happened and we couldn't put it down to her eating less (that we're aware of) or more excercise (hardly :rolleyes::lol ).


So she had a full blood work up including thyroid, blood smear etc and all was normal for her. The only quirk in the red blood count turns out to be 'normal' given that Darcy has some mild heart damage from her doxorubicin (chemo drug).


So the next (final) thing really was to do chest x rays. It's been 6 months since she last had any and it's 22.5 months now since diagnosis/amp so....


But everything is still as clear as it was 22.5 months ago :confetti


Darcy is absolutely fine in herself and other than the weight loss (which isn't massive - it's been about 3kg since Feb) and she doesn't have any other symptoms of anything untoward, so we're just going to assume that she's been eating a bit less than she'd previously been and maybe throwing her toy once or twice more in a week than she normally does :rolleyes:


The miracle continues :beatheart

Darcy, you are my Hero!!!! You are an inspiration and it's just so fantastic that after 22.5 months you're still as healthy as a horse!!!


So, Bev, is there going to be a HUGE party in 1.5 more months?
