Lily Update/Rhoda Johnson-Byrne

Lily had her 3-month follow-up with her oncologist at UC Davis and I can give you the latest news!  The chest x-ray was clear, her lymph nodes are normal and the two other lumps that recently developed were aspirated and confirmed as lipomas.  Our excellent local vet aspirated and came to the same conclusion but I wanted the oncologist's opinion.  So our lovely Lilykins is doing wonderfully well in this regard! 

Last week she came up lame in her left rear leg.  It's an off/on thing which is odd.  She's on Previcox but it's not helping as much as we'd like to see.  And she's being a stinker about taking her Proin for incontinence.  We have both the chewables and the liquid and she hates both.  Now she's suspicious of every medium we use, even the ones she used to love.  Here's a photo of her eyes.

Lily eyes

I am doing okay, thank you.  The eye problem persists so I'm rarely on the computer these days.  An MRI ruled out a brain tumor (yay!) so the neurologist thinks the aura that preceeds my migraines never went away.  The disturbances may eventually go away, or not.  She also said the brain can learn to "ignore" them so I'll no longer see it, but it's been almost 5 months now.  She said my case was very unusual.  Lucky me.  Sadly, reading is my most favorite pass-time and this has made doing that (or anything visual) a challenge so I mostly avoid it.  The strain of trying to see around blind spots and flashing light is fatiguing and leads to more headaches.  I'm hoping one of these days that all the weird stuff will go away when the next headache does. 

 Thanks again for your note and for thinking of us.
