Good News - Bad News

Mom and I decided to give the chemo pills a try. For over a month Mom put pills down the back of my throat. I hated, hated, hated it. And I have to admit that I fought and hissed and scratched and ran when I saw her approaching. That's not like me at all. I love my Mom. The pills were making me behave badly. Mom didn't like stressing me out, but we went through it. I had blood tests this weekend and got the results yesterday. Mom was so upset that she put me through a month of this and it didn't help at all. The protein levels were higher and my kidney levels were affected. So that means the cancer is progressing and the pills do not work for me. They suggested we try another medication but Mom and I had a long chat and we know the best thing for me is to not try any more medication. I have always been the most mellow cat and love my Mom. So the good news is

1. Mom threw my last pill away this morning - no more pills.

2. I'm not in any pain so Mom says I call the shots now. We will continue to medicate for my diabetes, that I can handle. Mom said I can live the rest of my life in peace and tranquility for as long as I have left. Is she the best Mom or what? I might surprise the doctors and hang in here for awhile.

3. The dogs are still not allowed in my suite of rooms - that rocks.

4. Grandma visits me almost every day. She's a good scratcher. Life is good.
