Hi All,

Howie is done with his IV chemo but because he still has the same symptoms, the vet has put him on Leukeran, a chemo treatment in pill form. His last visit to the vet showed he lost a very slight amount of weight, despite eating two to three cans of cat food a day. The good news is that his blood levels were normal compared to his previous visit and his intestines are not as hard, when palpated, as before. Howie is still very weak but I've noticed since the chemo has stopped, he's getting a teeny bit stronger.

I wish I had better news to tell you. :sad: Whatever happens, Howie knows he's loved and he's in his glory because he gets to eat whenever he wants!!

to all!!!
