There was not much change for me for awhile there. I went weekly to get my lab work to watch what the Palladia was doing. Well after my test last week the Palladia did a lot. It dropped my White Blood Cell count from 50,000 to a high normal of 20,000! This is what we all wanted to see in hopes it would help the fevers. So far it has not though. However the Palladia also dropped my PCV (red blood cells) from 26% to 20% in one week. Yikes! That made me anemic. Dr T said to stop the Palladia immediately. I did not seem to feel bad at least. My mom knows the symptoms of anemia from seeing Simon have it when he had his battle with Chronic Renal Failure. His anemia was non-regenerative & we are hoping that mine is regenerative. If mine is for sure caused by the Palladia then I should be fine now that it has been stopped. We should know today as I had more tests yesterday to determine all that.
So now it looks like I can't take the Palladia. We are all very disappointed as we had hoped it would slow the cancer progression. We will know for sure on future use of Palladia for me once we hear from the vet hopefully later today. It seems like no matter what we try, it just does not help me. We are about out of magic now. :(
Like I said before, I still have the fevers but I also still have my good days too. For now my tumors are stable. I still enjoy eating, singing to my forks and watching the birds outside. We keep hoping the fevers will stop as mysteriously as they started and then each day will be good for me.
Many thanks for all the support! Also for prayers, purrs, Power of the Paw, comments, pawmail, gifties and just keeping me in your thoughts. I will update when I know more about the latest tests.
Hi Louis LeBeau, good to hear from you. You are such a fighter and have been through so much. I am glad to hear that you are still eating and enjoying it, singing to your forks, giggles, and watching the birdies and stuff. Me and Mommie are purring and purraying for you!
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
Louis you are not out of magic because the purr and prayer power will still help you. I know what you mean though. I hope another vet will think of something else to try. I am so glad you are feeling well most of the time.I will keep purring for you sweetie.
Love and purrs,
It is so good to hear from you. You and your family are often on our minds and when that happens, me, Mom and Pandora stop and say a prayer and send lots of purrs.
Have a wonderful, fever-free day! I hope you have lots of sun puddles like we have.

Hello my love. I am heartbroken to hear that you must stop the Palladia! I had jumped fur joy when I heard that it had dropped your white blood cell count from 50,000 to a normal reading of 20,000! Then I read on to find that it had made you anemic. What a shame! I had such high hopes fur this drug. Oh well, don't let this get you down. They will find something that works fur you darling. Purrlease keep me posted about your latest blood test. I love you with all of my heart...

We are purring for you Louis ...
My dear Louis, there is always the magic of prayer and someting new could be out there. Tell Mommy to keep searching the net for news. Sometimes even the Vets don't know what Vet hospitals in another part of the country are using.
You are so brave and strong so don't give up hope.We aren't going to give up on you. We all adore you, Louis.
We're purrrrring that your tumors continue to be stable and you continue to enjoy good days. Eating, singing and watching birds is great ~ keep it up!
love and purrrrs from all of us,
