update on griffin & the cancer...

well, griffin has been on treatment for a month. he was doing better, but we noticed the lymph node swelling coming back. we took him to his wonderful oncologist and indeed, the lymph nodes are a bit swollen and he's lost a pound. they had hoped he'd gain weight on the prednisone.

the good news is that we are just figuring out treatment, and there are other chemo meds to try. we're starting a new one tomorrow.

griffin is still better these days, he's got his spring back in his step, and he plays with gilly again. and last weekend he almost grabbed a roast chicken out of the pan. so i think he's improved and back to his normal, food stealing self.

so it's not great news, but not bad news. it's....news.
