So I don't know if anyone remembers me posting months ago about Gus having Lymphoma but we have been doing chemotherapy with excellent results. I finally had the courage to ask how many more chemo's we have, it's been about 7 months now and as it turns out, chemo can be a 2 year commitment for animals. We go for 52 weeks and then after that it is my choice, I can stop all together or continue for a second year with once a month treatments. What would you all do? I am terrified that if we stop, that the cancer will come back but at the same time it's about $200/visit, my bank account is draining and my boss is getting less sympathetic about all the time I have to take off. On the other hand, he is my child and I only want the best for him. Chemo has been pretty good, minimum side effects and it's given him 5 years back on his life, he acts like a kitten again.
