I just updated the website, & Im sorry Ive been remiss in popping back lately to say he is doing great in his 2nd remission .... until today. Im a bit of a wreck, praying this isnt the beginning of the end.
Here is what I posted:
Kibo has very diminished use of his back legs since this morning:(
Of course, Sana's end began this way, losing use of his legs.
Kibo DOES have arthritits & he IS a 12.5 yr old Lab, but, this is a HUGE change since yesterday when we walked about a mile & he had no issues at all. His back legs have been weaker since the cancer & chemo, & Ive read that Pred can do that & Lord knows he's been on a lot of Pred the past year & currently 40mg a day the past few months. He also got his 4th dose of CCNU a few nites ago, but hasnt had this reaction at all from it before.
This AM he was struggling to get up & couldnt. His back legs were crosses beneath him & even with help, they kept collapsing. BUT, a few hours later he was way better, still wobbly, but ok, & we went to the dog park where he just laid to watch them all play (which is what he does anyway). So its been off & on all day. Now we just got back from Avereys play & he was totally unable to stand on his back legs, collapsing under him. He was totally "normal" other than that. I tried to carry his back end with the sling to go out, but he kept falling. The GOOD thing is when Averey got a sandwich, he managed to struggle to get up & get to the table ... goofball.
