Beyond Amazed!

Back in January my husband & I had decided to put off getting the next set of x-rays.  Because at this point, it doesn’t really change anything.  And driving out to MSU takes the whole day, not to mention the cost.  But of course, it’s always hard not knowing, too.  So when I recently took Murphy for his flu shots, I found out that this vet will do x-rays for about half of what MSU charges and she’s only 10 minutes down the road.  So curiosity got me and I had to have a look.  I’m so beyond amazed to be able to say that 3 years and 5 months after surgery for histiocytic sarcoma, Murphy is still cancer free!!!!!  His lungs, spine, hips, liver, everything look perfect (well, a little bit of arthritis, but he’s 10 years old).  He really just keeps amazing us!  So on the way home we shared a roast beef sandwich, and stopped at Pet Smart for some grain-free treats that we’ve found with glucosamine & chondroitin.
