~I’am a Cancer Survivor

This morning we took Kloud to Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital for her fourth and final chemo treatment. We left her in good hands. The Veterinarian staff began her treatment with an ultra-sound, a chest x-ray and blood work.
We waited nervously and patiently for the phone call telling us what they discovered. The call came a couple of hours later. Cloud’s ultra-sound and chest x-ray were clear, good, fine…….
The blood work indicated a slightly low white blood cell count, but they decided to go ahead with the chemo treatment.
We picked her up a short time ago. Kloud pranced out of the Oncology Department wearing the CSU green “I’am a Cancer Survivor” bandana! It was a very happy moment.
Hugs all around! The Vet and Staff that were assigned to her, even had tears in their eyes.

Nothing but praise for the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital and all their passionate and dedicated staff!!

A little tired from her experience today. But, happy to be home enjoying the cool, fresh air from her favorite observation place. She sits on her deck looking out over Loveland.
Our beautiful, cancer free, eleven year old!

    So glad that Kloud is through with her treatments and doing so well Such good news. She really is beautiful. Those vet schools can be wonderful. The University of AZ is finally getting one, and it’s going to be right here in Oro Valley.
