Monday, March 30th

Lets see. We haven't mentioned yet but Rocco's weight at the start of prednisone treatment was 59.1 lbs. We brought him in last Tuesday for his first Chemo and he was 55 lbs. That is 4lbs lost in 6 days!! We had increased his food and by Friday, 3 days later he was up to 57lbs so I was happy about that. Rocco played yesterday but did not want to play today. He goes in for another Chemo treatment tomorrow as long as his white blood cell level is up to par. He isn't yawning much (One of the chemo drugs has jaw pain as a side effect). He is chewing a good amount of bone though. Maybe it just hurts to extend his jaw all the way? Anyway, his stool had some blood this morning but not this afternoon so we'll just keep taking it one day at a time.
