I don't think I can express just how happy I am that Zephyr is celebrating his 5th birthday today! Almost a year ago he came down with encephalitis and I came very close to loosing him. Thanks to some excellent veterinarians and Zephyr's strong will, my boy is doing great!
If all goes well Zephyr will be finished with his chemo treatments (his procarbazine was reduced to twice a week Dec. 1) and only taking 5mg of prednisone once a day (down from twice a day) within two weeks. I have to admit I'm still pretty nervous about what will happen as we take him off the meds., but very happy about it at the same time.
lost a lot of muscle tone, lost a lot of fur, and gained a lot of weight (to about 100 lbs.). He's looking quite svelte now, weighing in at a little less than 92 lbs. this week, fur slowly filling in, and zipping and bouncing around like a young pup.
Happy Birthday baby boy! I love you so much!!
