I'm glad to hear that Russell is eating well. Hopefully the new chemo regimen will do well for him.
Unfortunately, Katie lost her battle. We put her to sleep on Tuesday, when it became clear after xrays that the mass had started growing into her chest and impeding her airway. I couldn't let my best girl struggle. I'm afraid that I'll be losing Joey soon, as well. His lymph nodes have almost tripled in size, although he's still eating well, I'm noticing a decline in his activity, and while at rest, a lot more respiratory effort.
This has been a very difficult week, and next week isn't looking much better.
