He did extremely well with the legs shots today. He's got a new breathing technique which makes him relax, and he barely flinched. Not a bit of a whimper at all.
Then he had a visit from Sunny. Sunny is another treatment dog. A big golden retriever, which came just after leg shots, so that was great timing.
Less than an hour later, Benji the Dog shows up too - and Scott puked right as they walked in room. They were asking if they should come back later, but he told them to stay, got cleaned up, and got Benji right up on his bed just a minute after being sick. Great timing again!
He's due 3 big doses of steroids tonight, which will be via IV. Then the methotrexate starts at 12. Due to his problem clearing it last time, the dosage has been dropped about 25%. The doctors are confident that it will pose no problems. Of course we worry to no end about any slight modification. But just have to take it a week at a time.
So the real fun starts in a few hours.
