Subject: woody's lymphoma detail

in an earlier message it sounded like you thought i was
exaggerating the size of woody's lumps, dr. here
'ya go! unfortuantely i don't need to exaggerate the size of
his lumps. attached are digital snapshots of his recent

the lump under his arm doesn't bother him. the lumps on both
sides of his neck don't bother him either. what is REALLY
bothering him is the lump in his chest, which is putting
pressure on his trachea. he sounds like you or i would if we
walked around with a dog collar on - notched two marks too
tight. i've created a blanket ramp type thingie for him to
prop up his head so he can suck in breath a bit easier.

he's been on HIGH pred dose for two weeks now. he's also been
through the first three days of luceran. 5 more days and he
can have the last 3 days of dosing. i'm still holding out for
a remission, so i'm trying to make him comfy until i'm
convinced this isn't going to work. any suggestions on making
him more comfortable (i doubt it)?
