Just a quick update....

We are a few days shy of Libby's 3 month ampuversary but I wanted to share the news today.  She went in for blood work and xrays this morning and her lungs are clear, liver looks good and her blood levels are all in the normal range!  She even lost a pound so we are doing the happy dance around here. 

I join the countless other pawrents who can't thank this site enough for all the helpful info, love and support.  You all are the nicest people I've never met. :)

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14
