An Update on Virginia

Thanks to everyone for being so kind about our sweet girl. I'm most grateful for the good wishes you've been sending in her direction.


Here's a quick update: three days ago she had the fourth of her six chemotherapy treatments. Thus far, with the exception of sleepiness for a couple of days after each treatment, she's suffered no side effects. She's monitored carefully with weekly blood tests. Last week the oncologist also gave her an added battery of tests, including an echo-cardiogram, to make certain the chemotherapy wasn't damaging her internally, and the results showed her to be in very good health with no cause for concern.

She's being such a trooper about this. All the staff members at the hospital are wrapped around her little paw.



I took this picture of her this morning:

Here she's settling in for her late-morning nap.

We're very optimistic about how her treatment is going. Thank you again for keeping her in your thoughts!
