The Sleeve Vortex
We had some (relatively) good news about Cody today...the cancer has not spread and we will be working with an oncologist at the OSU vet school to figure out the next steps. We might do some radiation to shrink it a bit before it is removed, or the guy at OSU might be able to take it off wtihout it, perhaps having radiation after. We're lucky that the timing is right and we both have some free time to travel around Oregon taking Cody to see various vets. Our vet Priscilla thinks that once we get through this he can have his full life as expected (ie he'd have a good four years left with us), I would honestly be happy to split the difference at this point. But anyway, we're starting on the journey with him, and hopefully in a few months this will all be behind us. Thanks for your good thoughts about our little guy. He sends a big 'nose buzz' to all.
