Da Momster will takes over now....we busy!
Well, DaWeenies and the rest of them are all having fun with their presents so I guess I'll take over from here.
Tucker went in for his fourth chemo treatment on Friday. They also took new x-rays to see what the tumor was doing. Unfortunately, the news isn't too good.
The primary tumor is a little bit smaller...that's the only good news. The bad news is that there are numerous smaller tumors beginning to form throughout his lungs. The oncologist who is treating Tucker said the only option was to change the chemo drug and see if we get better results. This drug would be given every 3 weeks instead of weekly.
We decided to go ahead and give it a try. It was either that or just give up and I'm not ready for that just yet. So Tucker received the first dose of the new drug on Friday.
Things are looking pretty bad at the moment. Even though Tucker seems to be breathing a lot easier now, he has stopped eating and is going downhill rapidly. The reason for this could be one of two things. The tumor has taken over and we are now looking at the end getting that much closer...OR...the change of the chemo drug has made him sick. I'll be discussing this with the oncologist this afternoon. In the meantime, Tucker is comfortable and sleeping most of the time. He is drinking lots of water so that much is in his favor. He hasn't eaten anything since Saturday morning and seems like he's losing a lot of weight.
Please keep him in your prayers no matter what the outcome of this turns out to be. I keep hoping he'll suddenly wake up and be hungry again but in the back of my mind, I know this probably won't happen.
I want to thank everyone for their kindness and support and a special thank you to the Crossed Paws Group. The pictures I got of Tucker the day he received his wonderful gifts may very well turn out to be the very last pictures I'll ever have of Tucker enjoying life.
Hugs and Love to All...
