Unfortunately Merlin’s chest xray showed the cancer has spread, he has 2 nodules and a shadowy patch in one of his lungs. They think the shadow is maybe inflammation from another nodule they can’t see. It’s so sad, I suppose part of us thought and hoped  maybe he would beat the odds.

The vet gave him a different chemo to the carboplatin he’s been getting, apparently it’s an older drug but it might have more of an effect. So Merlin’s going back to the vets in a month for another xray to see if its stopped them growing. In the mean time we’ve been given some tablets to help with the possible fluid in his lungs.

We have to try and enjoy every day we have with him, although it’s difficult because we don’t want to  to say goodbye to such a gentle, loving boy. This is a photo of Merlin’s first Christmas, we’ll just have to make sure this one is extra special!!
