Run Free, Kato...

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Khalil Gibran

Finally, an update.

It's been over a year since Kato's last chemo treatment and he's still in remission! :)

He's been having some issues with his stomach so he'll be seeing his oncologist for a check up sometime next week.

Kate's had a really good year and I'm hoping he'll have many more. I'll post an update after his vet visit.

A great update!

Kato went for his checkup with the Oncologist on Sunday, June 8 and got a clean bill of health! :) His last chemo treatment was in early February and he's been doing really well except for some arthritis and stomach issues. He's on Deramaxx daily which really seems to help. I haven't been able to resolve the stomach issues yet, but am now going to try a daily pepcid, so we'll see. He's gained a bit of weight, so I may cut his food down a little, but other than that he continues to look and feel great! I am thrilled!

I hope all is well with everyone! Have a great summer!

Love, Dee & Kato

PS...Kato loves bully sticks and is eating two at once in the above pic. He wedges them in between the sections of the couch. I guess it's more fun to eat them that way. lol

Kato update

I'm sorry I haven't updated in a while, but promise to do better in the future.

The Oncologist was very pleased with Kato when he went for his check up last month. He's had some issues with his stomach since then and I've just sent a stool sample in to be checked. He looks really good and aside from some issues with his stomach, continues to do well!
You can see in the pic that he has one lone whisker that's grown back since chemo. His eyelashes are starting to come back as well. He's happily taking a pill in the pic! :)

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter!

Kato is doing really well! His nodes are normal and he looks and feels great! :)
He'll be going for a checkup in about a week.

Kato & I got these beautiful flowers today from the members of Pit Bull Talk to celebrate the end of chemo. Thank you PBT!!! :)

A rainy day

It rained all day today so Kato decided to nap the day away!

Sunday is Kate's last chemo treatment!!! :)

The home stretch

Kato continues to feel great! :) He'll be going for chemo on Sunday (Vinblastine)and I expect him to do well. He has one more treatment after that, then a CBC, and we'll be finished with chemo! :)
I have to speak to the Oncologist as to what we do from there.

Thanks to all our friends for the support!
