Died December 15th '07 aged 4 yrs
Dianne's handsome Brindle Boxer
dx lymphoma July 2007.
"Thanks to all who prayed, chatted, thought of us or sent
an encouraging email. Unfortunately, Capone lost his battle with
lymphoma Saturday December 15th at 10:30am. We were lucky to have
him as long as we did. He was a GREAT companion. We couldn't have
asked for anyone better"

He had 6 treatments within a 3 month period on a very
experimental protocol. It included initial chemo drugs plus a "rescue"
protocol up front instead of waiting. With the first treatment, they
administered adriamycin and injected cytoxan. This took about an
hour and we went home with dexamethasone to administer the following
day. Two weeks later was an all day treatment consisting of
elspar,cytarabine,bleomycin and the dexamethasone. The third
treatment, two weeks after that, went quickly and consisted of
vincristine and we took home ceenu and the dexamethasone. Then these
three treatments repeated themselves.
Now we start the waiting game and hope we wait a very long time
before those lymph nodes come back...
