Chest X-Rays are CLEAR!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Mom is doing a happy dance.   Today I got my 4th chemo treatment.  And they took x-rays of my chest.  Dr. Tripp told my Mom: “The lungs are clear!” and Mom started smiling from ear to ear and dancing around.  (I’m blind, so I couldn’t see her smile, but I could FEEL it.)

I got treats for being a good boy at the vet and chicken from Mom when we got home.  Today is a good day!!!  Yum!  Mom promised me more special food for dinner before she left for work.

And, my oncologist Dr. Tripp’s office (Animal Medical Center of Seattle) is sponsoring the 2 Million Dog Puppy Up! Walk in Seattle on Nov. 7.  Mom signed us up for that.  There will be another walk in Auburn (a bit south of Seattle) at the same time.  GEEE!

    James, I am so happy for you!! I hope you get something really cool for dinner. Just make sure the dynamic duo doesn’t get into the fridge and help themselves to it!

    I hope that I will get to see you at the trial in Elma. Mom says I should share some of my favorite treats with you to celebrate. I don’t mind sharing with you, but let’s make sure fatty Katie is not around to steal them!!

    Keep up the good work and keep getting stronger. I hope you are almost done with Chemo.

    Hi Sophie,

    I am NOT going to let fatty Katie and her cohort in crime TJ get MY special treats!!! Since the refrigerator is not “safe” any more, Mom has started hiding treats in the microwave and in the oven!!

    Guess what! My 6th and last chemo treatment will be the day before BIG TURKEY DAY! We will have a lot to celebrate.

    Woo Hoo James!!! We are so happy for you. That is the best pawsible news ever!! Only 2 more chemo treatments to go and you will be done. Make sure you get all the special treats you can the next few days. I’m gonna go make my Daddy get me some treats because my friend James has no mets.

    That’s awesome James! Clear chest x-rays!! Whoo hoo!! And 4th chemo treatment – wow you don’t have much farther to go. We are so happy for you and will definitely be celebrating this great news with you with lots of treats, ice cream and cheese. 🙂 Way to go James!

    YEA!!!! Clear chest x-ray and fourth chemotherapy complete, now that is great news. Can you feel the smiles on my Dad’s face as he reads this wonderful news. He will be joing in a celebration with all the rest of the Tripawds community. YEA!!!

    Somehow he missed the notice about the two month ampuversary. Actually, I know the reason. The LA rescue is kinda of occupying all his time. I try to tell her not to drive Dad crazy, but she just does not seem to listen. However, by missing the original posting of the two month milestone, we will just have to extend your celebration. Now how can that be bad?

    Keep on rocking my man.

    Well that is news that absolutely rocks, James. Somehow I don’t think you need to see your Mom smile to know that she is. I imagine you have a pretty good sense for that.

    Maybe you should see if your Mom will give you a beer to celebrate….or ice cream, if that fails.

    Rock and ROLL James, that’s RAD!!!! Congrats!!!

    I can’t wait to celebrate with you in pawson. But I’m confused, I didn’t know there was a walk in Seattle too. Hmmm…Maybe we can met up a day or two before, cuz I heard Mom say we’re doing the Auburn walk.

    Yay little James!
    I am so glad for you and your pack of wonderful pups. I missed this somehow when you posted so we will celebrate for you today! It was great meeting you and sorry we won’t be at the same walk but wherever you walk isn’t the point, it is that you will be walking to help beat this.
    Sammy will be having ice cream tonight as a bonus and we will be honoring you,
    Elizabeth and Sammy
