Quick pupdate after Sage’s check up today post-chemo. Her white blood cell count and everything else is looking great! We were told to try to now stop the gabapentin after a slow taper this week and she how she does without it, but to keep up with the anti-inflammatory for the time being. Also…perhaps our favorite news…she is down to 122lbs! We KNEW she was looking leaner! Her heaviest weight, pre-surgery and pre-diet was 148! She still eats two great meals a day but with a more balanced diet. I’ll share this on the diet blog now that we’ve finally figured out the balance and have seen the results 🙂 So proud of her. She could still lose about 10ish more pounds probably. 122 would have been a pretty decent weight on four legs, but she still has a little way to go to be a lean tripawd, but she is clearly well on her way! Thanks, as always, to all the encouragement and innovative ideas from this community! We couldn’t be doing this without all of you!
