Juno began acting sick again the beginning of the week. She finished her prednisone 1 week ago (she was on a tapering dose of pred for about 5 weeks, while the chemo was given every 3 weeks), and when I gave her that last dose I had a gut feeling that having her off prednisone was going to lead to a decline. My feeling was right.
She had an ultrasound today, her lymph nodes are even larger than they were 1 month ago. She's not responding to the chemo; it was really only the prednisone keeping things manageable.
Back on prednisone she goes. Trying another rescue protocol with a different chemo drug because I just can't not try every viable option. But I don't know how long we can keep this up. It's only been 5 months since she was diagnosed.
Thanks for being on this rollercoaster with me....
