You guys have to keep giving me such positive feedback. No, we
haven't tried
the tracheal wash...and I will suggest it to my docs....

I will mention (moderators if you give me some leeway) that Dr. Herbert
of Petcare has broken both of his ankles and is currently unable to come
work. I'm sure he would appreciate well wishes from his fellow

The spot on Buster's lung is no larger than a dime. maybe even smaller.
has not grown in size, and when we do the two views on his body, no
shadows appear - so if this is lymphoma, it is currently limited to only his
right lung. There are no other 'shadows' anywhere else on his body.

I am welcoming any other avenues of approach. Cost is not something I
into the equation - only quality of life.

[Because Dr. Hulls' name is not discussed along with any treatment and
the wish is such a kind one I think that we can treat this as we do
recommendations and allow him to be mentioned. -- Sukie (one of 5
