As mentioned Madi's last planned treatment was November 5. Next steps are having her port (access for chemo) and two IVC filters removed, with an MRI scheduled Dec 19. Treatment per say is over, and now she's in cleanup/maintenance mode.
There's a sense of looming normalcy on the horizon. Madi has signed up for college and is regaining weight/endurance. Next things to look forward to... growing her hair back!
We crossed paths with a french bulldog in Boston too many times to count... it was almost too coincidental. "Sasha" was so cute, so sweet and again the reason we found Christopher's Haven. Madi and her mom found a frenchie here locally, and it was love at first site. Madi and her mom adopted "Bailey" two weeks ago.
Bailey instantly attached herself to Madi, who now has a sense of parenthood. Bailey can't walk past a leaf withing eating it, she likes grabbing small rocks and carrying them around in her mouth, and chasing the cats... which is eventually going to backfire. Bailey also learned that while cute, she actually can't walk on water and now has a healthy fear of the Jacuzzi. We were right there, no danger... but there are some lessons that we mammals need to learn. Next lesson coming for Bailey... cats have lots of sharp toes.
