Beanie had his third chemo treatment today, this time back to the pill, and they gave him 20% less this time because previously his white blood cell count was really low when we got the blood test done a week later. Fingers crossed we get absolutely no side-effects again and that he remains his normal self.

We had the oncologist appointment today. They couldn't get anything fully conclusive about the type of cancer, at least not without doing a biopsy which is a bit risky itself, but he's going to go on chemo next week once his UTI is under control. The prognosis for the specific type of cancer that it most likely is is an average of six months, but there's no way to know how well he'll respond to treatment so it might be more, it might be less. 😞

Beanie's been unwell lately (intermittently throwing up and needing to pee a lot more frequently), he was shivering a bunch this afternoon so Kristina took him to the vet and they did an x-ray and it turns out he's got a tumour in his abdomen so we had to have to rush him to the emergency vet. 😢 He's staying overnight and they're going to do a CT scan in the morning and see what the deal is, the vet said it looks like it might be something in his spleen and they see that being malignant about 2/3s of the time. They're likely going to do surgery pending the results of the scan, then take samples and send them off to be analysed to see if it _is_ malignant or not.

I am now officially discharged from the exercise physiologist! 🎉 When we started a few months ago, she had a "force meter" device where it was attached to my ankle at the front and I'd sit down and pull as hard as I could backwards. My right leg measured ~13kg and my left was 11kg. Today we did it again, and the right leg was 20kg and the left was 24kg! I'm not at the point yet where I'm able to have the elliptical up to where I used to use it (previously I was at 12˚ incline, 14 resistance out of a maximum of 20, right now I'm at 2˚ incline with 7 resistance) but that'll just be a matter of building up to it. 💪🏻
