Sydney is doing pretty well. I can tell the Leukeran is making her tummy not feel so great so I am going to talk to Dr. Bill tomm. and see if he has any suggestions. I've had to coax her into eating several times this week and that hasn't been an issue for some time. Sydney has bloodwork and will get an injection of vincristine tomm. I am so hoping to hear some better blood values now that the leukeran is in play.

We had a nice holiday. Spent some time with friends and visited my cousin lastnight. Her new puppy she adopted from the pound (Toby) is just a doll baby. I have never felt a puppy so soft in my entire life (and I've squeezed quite a few pups! LOL).

I hope all of you had a great holiday.... I'm off to catch up on the threads visting everyone !!

Merry Christmas Michelle (though it is late). Sorry to hear Sidda's tummy is acting up. My doc has Mollie on the equivalent of human Reglan, and also Pepcid if needed. It works really great for her. Maybe that would help sweet Sydney!

Have a great New Year's, and sorry it has been so long since I have been in touch! I have been very depressed, to the point of just staying in bed almost all day which isn't good for me or Mollie, but it hits me now and again and take a bit to get over. Just know that I always think of you and the dorks!

Give Sidda and silly Charlie lots of love from us!

:hugs:

Gail & Mollie

Hey Michelle, Thanks for coming to check on jack. I am sorry to hear that Miss Syd is having the tummy icks, but glad to hear you had a great Christmas. New puppy huh? I am jealous. It has been a long time since I held a puppy. I always end up with rescues that have left that soft puppy stage. Give that baby another hug for me next time you see him.

My sis rescued a kitten :catwatching: from a nutsy breeder she saw online. She drove four hours and found deplorable conditions there. Took one home and is now having health problems. We are all hoping that little Carrabino will pull through. So many to rescue and so few to do i t.

Give Miss Syd some soft hugs from Jack and tell Mr. Charlie we love him. Love you, too, dear friend

Debbie and jack :dogsled:

Syndey's chemo went well today... her blood was pretty much the same as last time ... so not much change (lymphocytes still high). There were some low protein values which could be the same or a recurring bladder issue (she peed on the floor twice again).... but she wouldn't donate pee for Dr. Bill. I had to get a urine when I got there and I didn't get the results back yet. My guess is that she still has an infection. No swelling of the lymphnodes and she's looking great - her weight was 71 only 2 lbs different than when she was diagnosed !! That was great (she had been down in the lower 60's for a short time :)

I posted some pictures of Syd & Charlie over in our Santa Paws thread. I even tried to post a video of Charlie with his present from paula1 .... not sure if it works for others or not though ? I have a couple of pictures of Toby too that I will share when I pull them off my camera.

:hugs:

Hi Michelle. Glad to hear that Syd's chemo went well. Hopefully the test results come back soon and that they are "good". Sorry to hear the meds are causing tummy troubles again. :sad: We're sending warm thoughts and prayers your way that Miss Syd will be feeling much better soon!

XOXOXO

Michelle, Daisy and Blue

Hey Michelle....

Really glad that our girl is doing so well. Mike, on the other hand, is having some real problems. I'm really too messed up to write it all again here, so check out his thread. Sorry, didn't want to be a bummer here, but I know everyone checks on Syd and I'm just asking for prayers for my boy... as many prayers as we can get.

Love you guys!!!

Love & Blessings,

Joanna & Mike

Joanna - all our prayers are comin' right at you! I just saw the email that Mike was back in fundraising. I am so sorry that I haven't checked in on him in awhile I feel terrible.

Angels - PLEASE help Mike if you can. He needs surgery ASAP ! And IMOM is matching donations!! Go to his thread in general fundraising and send whatever you can spare !

Hey There...

Just stopped in to check on our beautiful Sydney and that rascal Charlie!!! This pics of them on the Santa page were AWESOME!!! Boy, you can really see the personality in those eyes of theirs. AND... it's amazing how well they write too... especially for their age... they are geniuses! I couldn't open the video though :sad:

Thanks so much for supporting Mike on Syd's thread. We really do appreciate it.

:hugs: and Love, Blessings & WWNK,

Joanna & Mike

I hope u get Syd's results of the U/A tmw. Poor baby. I am glad though she handled the last chemo pretty well.

I'll check out the pics of the kids.

So how is Syd doing on funding?? I didn't check to see how much of a "cushion" she has--what I am wondering is when Syd needs that extra $75 sponsorship??

Please angels, help Syd--it will be wonderful when Syd is at "fully sponsored"!!!!!

Hugs to u and Syd.

Have a great New Years eve and day--and a blessed 2008!!! Be safe!

Well, we got the results of the U/A and there was blood in her urine again. Not a LOT but enough to indicate something is going on again. So she's back on the antibiotics. At least we found one that doesn't make her go off of food (and it's on the $4 walmart list !! YAY!!! )

I'm noticing a "pattern" develop with the Leukeran. On the days she gets it... she's very shakey / wants to lay down a lot , burps like CRAZY, and is picky about eating. On the days she doesn't she seems fine. So Dr. Bill is going to talk to the oncologist and see what he thinks. They may add some new supportive medications for the apparent GI upset and possibly back down on her pred (he thinks that might be complicating the urine issues).

Joanna ~ I am sooooooo bummed I can't figure out how to get that video of Charlie posted. If anyone knows how to post a video and would let me send it to them so they can post it - send me a PM . It's cute!!!

Cindy ~ I am not sure about Sydney's fund. She had $584 on Dec. 18th but she's had chemo since then and Juli has (or will be) ordering Leukeran (a month worth) so I don't know where we are. I THINK we will be okay for next month's chemo but maybe not another Leukeran order or monthly chemo???

I am off to check up on everyone ... I've missed so many threads lately !!!

Hi Michelle...

Just wanted to touch base with you. I tried to e-mail or message you, and I was told I wasn't "permitted" to. No idea why. Anyway.. I'm just kind of bummed tonight and saw you were online.. guess I just need a hug.

I hope Syd's feeling better. I'm glad you caught the pattern. That's the first step to solving the problem. Give Syd & Char a big hug from me.

Thank you so much for your help. God Bless You.

Hi Michelle, I use a website called Photobucket you can upload videos to it and post the link and people can view it from their site, or you've got my email from the SS so send me the video and I will be more than happy to post it for you. I have to wait until I get to work on Wednesday though I have dial up at home and it will take forever but at work we have Road Runner, so I can have it up in no time.

I hope Sydney is feeling better. Give both her Charlie and yourself a great big hug

Hi Michelle. Just stopping by to wish you and Syd a very happy new year!!!

Sorry to hear that Syd needs to go on antibiotics again and that her Leukeran (sp?) is irritating her tummy so much! Hopefully there is a new med that will alleviate the tummy troubles!

XOXOXOXO

Hey Michelle...

This won't be long because I'm trying to hit everyone's thread. It feels like a long time since I've done that, even though it's only been a couple of days. But, as I'm sure you know, my mind has been pretty much a blur lately.

I wanted to ask you about something. You said you get e-mails when you get a message here? How come I never got an e-mail? I wonder if I came in after they stopped it or something. Oh well.. I check all the time anyway, but I just thought it was kind of cool (and I'm missing out :sad: LOL)

Anyway, Mike and I want to wish you the happiest, most blessed and HEALTHIEST New Year ever.

Love, Blessings & WWNK,

Joanna & MIke

OMG Cindy I just noticed. Wow what wonderful news. Thank you so much Angel who has helped Miss Sydney out.

Joanne, down at the bottom where you click on add reply under post options there is a box to tick for email reply's. I'm guessing that possibly when we switched over it canceled all that stuff.

Where did you see that Syd is sponsored in full??????? Deb told me this too, so I had to come back and see for myself. I must have missed it somehow... and still couldn't find it...... BUT I'm not questioning it.

It says it where it used to say $75/month needed under Syd's name on the forum page. Plus now when it had who still needs sponsored that Juli updates on this forum--it just has Tuck and Snickers. No Syd anymore!!! WHOO-HOO

Miss Syd and Mikey both sponsored! How cool is that? :bravo::aktion033:

That's the way to start off the new year! Makes Jack want to :pp_animal_362:

So sharp of you Michelle to notice that pattern. I have said it before and I will say it again, you are the most amazing mom to your babies. :motimonkey:

I am hoping that the blood in the urine can be quickly cleared with the anitbiotic and it is cheap? That makes it doubly wonderful. :cool026:

Sorry I haven't posted but I have been keeping up with you and Miss Syd and or course that little cutie Charlie. Appreciate all your support for Jack and me, dear friend.

Love and big Husky hugs

Debbie and Jack :dogsled:
