Melinda, Welcome home! Just in time for cold weather. Home all goes well with your arrival and you find good vet to continue VooDoo's treatments. I survived lyphoma myself. After being told I would die in 3 months, I am still here 8 years later. I think a lot of their survival depends on your love and care for them. They sense this. Thank you for giving them all they need to get this far.
