Windsor and Broad Brook, Connecticut
With graduation out of the way, we turned our attention to Maya Lynn's health. After chemotherapy treatment back in Arizona that showed early promise but didn't pan out, we were anxious to get her evaluated here. Using information we got from her Arizona oncologist, we were able to make arrangements at a veterinary cancer center in Windsor, Connecticut, right near where we're staying.
Well, we found that the second chemotherapy drug wasn't much more effective than the first, so we switched her to a third. This one is a weekly injection as opposed to the daily pills she was on. She went through two treatments, including a full day stay so they could check her blood glucose over a 12 hour period. Because the third medication did help shrink the tumor, after discussion with the oncologist and the surgeon, we concluded that earlier was better than later for her surgery to remove the lump.
Now, all we need to do is keep her quiet for the next 3 weeks. Hmmm...
