After going through four more weeks of chemotherapy (chemo), following the December surgery, she quit eating and drinking, had to be hospitalized for a few days and fed through a nasal feeding tube ($2500), and then went through a few weeks of no chemo treatments. We started up chemo two weeks ago and changed the regimen up to include a mammary cancer-specific treatment and will go back to the lymphoma cancer regimen for three weeks starting next week.
Total so far, between myself and the Government study (genetically-modified bacteria treatment), my girl is worth about ~$25k....a little more than $15k of my own money and about $10k for the Government study. Can you tell I love my dog?!
Oh, and before I forget...while my girl was under the knife, back in December, I went up to PA to pick up another Doberman--a blue male. He's almost five months old now and weighs in at 50lbs...he's gonna be a big boy when he gets done growing!
