Good news for Lakshmi and me.
Lakshmi is the little black cat you can see sitting on my chest in the of the vidoes posted on this blog, Youtube, and we are sentience.
I got her off the street in October of 2008. She stopped eating and a vet did an exploratory, finding her riddled with cancer. I took her to Dr. Chretin at the West LA VCA, who put her on Leukeran. He cancer was brought under control, but recently, like Dustin, she developed inflamed gums, called stomatitis, which makes it painful for her to eat. So she has been treating for both conditions.
I took her in today for a physical, blood tests and a followup ultrasound.
The blood test results won't be in until tomorrow, but a shocker: Her physical and ultrasound revealed no signs of cancer whatsoever!!!
The radiologist said, had he not known her history, he would have judged her insides completely normal, just as Chretin said her gut was completely normal on palpation.
Not only is the cancer under control, it is as if there were a remission!!!!
Hopefully, the blood test results will be as benign.
