Demon Update

Demon was diagnosed with osteo 6/2009. His front leg was amputated and he had 4 rounds of carboplatin. He's done great until now. 3 weeks ago, I boarded the dogs for 36 hours. Demon and my foster started coughing about a week later and were diagnosed with kennel cough despite being vaccinated. Last week-end I started them on antibiotics. Demon then coughed up a blood clot. He had a chest xray this week and one area appears to have mets. I was so hoping we had caught this early enough that he'd be one of the lucky long-term survivors.

I'm so sorry. I know when we saw the mets on Cosmo's xrays there were some things her Dr. thought we could still try. We opted not to just because of how aggressive her osteo was, but maybe there's more you can do to extend his stay. Good luck. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

How does Demon seem to be feeling?

He seems to be feeling ok. His coughing has gotten better the last few days. Probably it's the kennel cough clearing up. But he coughed up another blood clot on his afternoon walk.

We tried a salvage protocol when Alex developed lung mets and it wasn't worth it. We make him comfortable but no chemo at this point.

Hoping it's the kennel cough making him feel poorly / coughing up nasties, and that it will be a long happy time before he notices anything else. Sending hugs.
