Emmett is in remission!
He’s in his third week of chemotherapy. He will continue the weekly regimen until about 8-12 weeks, when it starts to decrease in frequency. After 16 weeks it is done once a month, hopefully for a long, long time.
We also typed his lymphoma. There are 2 types, B cell and T cell. I remember learning in school that B=Bad and T=Terrible, as in, neither one is good, but T is the worse kind to have. The median survival times are markedly less for T cell lymphoma.
And Emmett has B cell. It sounds strange to say, “I’m so glad Emmett has B cell lymphoma,” but you know what I mean.
That is great news! Perhaps you will celebrate by giving Emmett a doughnut? Hmmmmm?
Good to hear! Yay!!
I’m so happy to hear that! I love reading your blog, I’ve always been interested in what a vet’s life is like and I’m happy you’re letting us into your world.
That is wonderful news!! Give Emmett some belly rubs from me!!
