Trying a pic again. I’m not on social media much but hopefully this link from Google photos works.
Not much to update so far otherwise. Thank you for sharing info on wbcs your jouney’s with this as well. So far nothing new or changed in schedules, will be doing a second cbc tomorrow, regular schedule would be xmas eve but everyone is closed that day so 23rd it is. At this point next Carbo is new years eve. Vet doing the interim cbc panels mentioned the chemo vet may want to add antibiotics and also that we should keep an eye out for unusual bruising because of the low platelets but really, Samsons been fine with no lethargy or fever or anything so hopefully it’s just something to watch and manage. We will likely stop at 4 treatments assuming nothing gets real crazy on the downside that warrants stopping sooner.
Hope everybody has been having a good weekend, this last one before Xmas can be a trip if you need to venture out in retail world.
Best to everyone from our family to yours.
I see the pic! What a sweetie. He looks as pooped out in front of the tree as our Wyatt Ray does right now, and Wyatt didn’t even have amputation surgery recently lol! From what I can tell the incision area does look great.
You are taking such great notes on doctor’s orders, it sounds like you are a pro at the watching and managing. Paws crossed everything goes as planned.
We hope you and your family have a great holiday too! I was out at the grocery store today and that was crazy enough, can’t imagine what the retail stores are like right now. Yikes! Anyone who works retail this weekend is a saint!

HAPPY 12TH BIRTHDAY SAMSON! He is so handsome! And yes he is doing his job guarding his yard. Love the puppy picture. Where does the time go? My Brownie will be 13 soon.
So happy Samson is doing well!
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!
