I did not get any good news about my lab work. My White Blood Cell count jumped up to a new high of 53,000! The other bad news is that the red cell count (PCV) did not go up. It remains at 20%. That means that it was not the Palladia causing my anemia. It is the cancer itself. Had it been the Palladia then my body would have generated new red blood cells in that week but it did not. I am back on the Palladia to get the WBC count back down as it was normal when I was on the med before. I don't feel well when it is that high. But the really bad news is the PCV. My mom asked about a few meds that help anemia but they are just for anemia caused by renal failure or chemo. They can actually make cancer grow faster and shorten a life.
So considering my PCV dropped 6% in only one week, this is very bad. It could mean just days more for me. We are hoping it will stabilize so I can have more time and be with my mom. It's odd as I feel good right now. I guess that will change if my PCV gets any lower though. My mom is just so sad. I know she tries to hide it but I am not fooled when I look into her eyes. I am worried about her. It's going to be very hard for her to be without me.
We may not be back online as we don't foresee any good news to share coming up. My mom will let you know when my situation changes. I do want you to always remember how much I love each and every one of you! You will always be a part of me. I've had so much fun on Catster over the years. Thank you again for your prayers, purrs, pawmails, emails, comments, gifties and most of all for your friendship. I love you!
We wish you had good news. We are purring that you and your momma get good mews the next time. Me and my brofurs are all purring for you.
All my purrs for you. ~ PJ

Aww, we hope you have more time, buddy, but even more than that, we hope whatever time you have is spent feeling okay, and not in misery. We all make the journy in the end, but it is how you lived your days that matters, and we don't like the thought of our fork-lovin' orange boy feeling poorly. You tell your humans if you want help drawing that final curtain, they will understand. Until then, feel alright, and know how loved you are by everyone. xxxooo
We love you Louis.
We hope that your time is peaceful and pleasant no matter how short or long it may be. Soak up and enjoy the love your family has for you. Sing to your fork and just enjoy being you. Try to eat to keep your strentgh but in all things please be happy. Special hugs to mommy.
