Small Break

The biopsy said “small cell,” or low grade, which I just read has a better prognosis than the large cell or high grade. So there’s that.

    Hi –

    Again, just my experience, but Tiger’s lymphoma (at the opposite end of the digestive tract) was low-grade, and it responded very well to chemo. The IBD will complicate things, I’m sure, but it sounds like you were on the right track with your IBD treatment before the lymphoma shoved its way to the front of the line.

    This may actually be a big break. Or at least medium-sized…

    Melissa, yeah, I realized that this just puts me back to where I thought it might go and yes, it’s not good, but as you said, your cat responded well to chemo and from what I’m reading, lots of other cats do too.

    So, it sucks, but we might have some good time left. Not as much as I had hoped, but still. It may not be the end yet.

    Thank you for continuing to post about your experiences, it’s really helping me.

    Glad it’s helping – I was afraid I was coming off a little stalkerish.

    Hope you’re both calm & coping…

    Stacy:

    I enjoyed reading about Buddy’s adoption in “Waiting for My Cats to Die” and I’m sorry to hear you two have to face this battle.

    Thank you. It does seem like it’s too soon to be facing something like this, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. (The Times did a profile of a friend of mine and he used that phrase and now suddenly I’m using it.)
