Updates- halfway done with chemo

Jabba has had 2 of his 4 “high dose” chemotherapy treatments at North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine. He has these every 3 weeks for 4 months. He needs a complete blood count every week to make sure he is handling it alright. We had a small scare when in the 2nd week his neutropil level was low, and there was a chance if it got lower he would have to stop. Luckily next week it was back to normal.

Some fur finally starting to regrow after 2 months.

We were a bit worried about a persistant discoloration on his stomach on the side of the amputation (purplish color compared to healthy pink on the other side). But the vet is not concerned.
