Happy, warm & cozy Vinny! :) <3

Happy, warm & cozy Vinny! 🙂 <3

It’s been 3.5 months now since amputation and Vinny is doing great. He is really happy. And so am I!

We received good news a couple weeks ago after his last biopsy to determine the cause of his lip condition. The results showed no cancerous cells, and it came back positive for “eosinophilic granuloma complex”, which is an autoimmune condition, and what we expected (and were hoping it was). It is completely treatable and non-life threatening in any way. It’s kind of like a skin allergy. His past outbreaks appeared on his lips, and did not seem to bother him at all. He’s now on a course of steroids for a few months, and a strict diet of hypoallergenic food. And he has not had an outbreak for a few weeks now, which is awesome. The doctor says this is something he has probably had his whole life, but might be affecting him now because of the stress of chemo. So we’re hopeful after chemo is over, he won’t have any more problems with it.

His blood work at his last chemo treatment came back completely normal, and still no side effects. So, everything is just great – he runs and jumps with no hesitation, and his fur is really growing back nicely now! 🙂

One more chemo treatment to go, and then that’s it! 🙂 Yay Vinny!

Showing off his remaining leg! :) haha!  He loves to come and sit in my lap and distract me when I'm trying to get some work done!
