Jake went to see Dr. Hedlin at Aspenwood today for another blood draw. We have to monitor the side effects of the chemo one week after each dose. His ALT count (liver enzymes) is the best it’s been in some time. The numbers for white blood cells, neutrophils and lymphocytes are low, however. He might need antibiotics if it doesn’t move up. Dr. Lana at the CSU Animal Cancer Center wants us to wait a week and do one more blood test before we decide.
