An Update on Luna

We had a few particularly warm days this past week, which gave Luna a bit of time to enjoy some sun on the patio.

Luna on the patio

Luna is still battling cancer, and probably will be for the rest of her time with us. But as one can see from the photo above it doesn’t prevent her from leading a happy and contented life. She has been her normal affectionate and playful self, and a delight to spend time with.

The surgery and chemotherapy that we did last year were key to her still being with us and enjoying life. The latest concern is a spot on her skin near the previous surgery that has tested positive for cancer. Fortunately, tests showed no internal metastatic disease – that remains our biggest worry. And nothing on the remaining mammary chain, which is also a relief. So we will go ahead with a surgery to remove the skin spot and another round of chemo to hopefully knock out any lingering cells.

It’s disappointing to have to put her through more treatments. I will do so as long as I feel it’s what’s best for her. She still has so much life in her and hasn’t slowed down from the disease, so the treatment is the best choice. Luna and I thank you for continued purrs and thoughts.

  2. Beautiful Luna DOES look happy and contented. Thank you for loving her so much, and for always doing what is best for her. As always, you are both in our thoughts, purrs and prayers! 🙂

  3. Thank you for this update on Luna…I was just thinking about her, wondering how the treatment had been working. I am glad she is feeling well. I am sorry to hear that she needs additional surgery but relieved the cancer has not spread. She is fortunate to have the love and care to help her through difficult times. Thank you for all you do Amanda!
