Hey all,  I apologize that it’s been too long since our last pupdate.  We are now a little over 10 months since the initial diagnosis and almost 9 months since the amputation.  We just had our second follow-up visit with Mizzou, which are scheduled in three month intervals for the nine months following completion of the treatments. They checked vitals, ran xrays, and did the usual poking around stuff that docs seem to do.  All tests came back clear and there is no evidence of spread of disease!  We are so very thankful that we were able to give our sweet Beastie a second chance.  I just wanted to make sure that you all know there is some hope when the initial outlook can look so very grim.

Thanks all for your support.  You all are doing amazing things.  

Virginia
