Hello all, Our time in Japan will finally be ending next summer. I have been so happy with my Japanese vet and credit him with the amazing health of my Fuji, who was diagnosed with Mediastinal Lymphoma 17 months ago. She was given 2-3 months to live and has exceeded that by over a year due to Dr. Morisaki's incredible care. He does not follow traditional protocols to the letter, but has my full confidence and respect.
Fast forward: Yesterday, he diagnosed my little VooDoo with "cancer" as well. His diagnosis was based on a needle draw of fluid in the chest cavity. He showed me the cancer cells in a microscope photo. I asked several times, same as Fuji and the response was yes. It seems that VooDoo has the same type of cancer and is receiving the same treatment. Fuji just started a maintenance program last month, after the original protocol was altered to take into consideration her consistently low white blood cell count. I am hoping that VooDoo can keep his WBC up and allow for a shorter treatment cycle. That way, by the time we move, he may be able to move to maintenance as well. I will be looking for a doctor that will respect the treatment that has already occurred and continue on the same path. Thanks for any input you may have. Melinda, Fuji and VooDoo _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
