Results by this week

Thanks, everyone for the prayers.

The biopsy results will be out by this week. However, the vet is 90% sure that I have lymphoma from some other tests she did. Aunty V has started me on reiki, and she will do reiki for me everyday. If anyone has any information on reiki for dogs, or success stories, or whatever, please let my M know. She's worried, and she's acting like a tap today.

I'm staying over at Scuba's house tonight with Helios so that Aunty S can look after me tomorrow to make sure I don't scratch my wound open. My M had half the mind to call in sick, but she just started on her new job 2 months ago and it's not so nice to call in sick so soon I guess.

My battle scar

My M thinks that the irony is, I did a complete blood test today, to lest my liver, kidney, blood count etc etc, and everything is normal. She even said my teeth is well kept for my age. So I am healthy in every other way except for my lymph nodes.

I'll need more prayers!

Hi Herbie,

Which vet did you see? There is a vet, Dr P from the clinic who is known to give wrong diagnosis. I hope you are not seeing her.

The last time I went there when I hurt my back real bad, she said I might have bone cancer too... **TOUCH WOOD**

I am keeping my paws crossed for you. Stay positive.

PS : Did M ever thought of letting you try acupuncture too? I can pass you the contact number of Dr Oh so that your M can clear any doubts she might have before she decide whether to let you try or not.

Hey Herbie

You'll be alright. Jessie had a mass of lymphomas removed from her chest when she was 13 years old, and she came through fine. If your blood tests are okay, you will be okay. My mum has heard very good reports about reiki and all types of natural healing. My mum gives us Ester vitamin C daily and I'm only 6yo and Hobson is only 4yo. What's most important is boosting the immune system. You'll be okay, buddie.

Love from Hammer and his mum and his family
