It was back to the vet with paddy again this morning. He gave over his blood sample like a good little boy, had his weight done and temperature done. His temperature is fine, his weight is down again to 13 kg from 13.8 kg. The vet has given him a month's course of steroids to see how he goes. The vet rang Jo this afternoon to say his red cell count had gone up to 2 points from 24 to 26. So a slight improvement. We will now see how he goes over the coming month. At the moment we and the vet are looking at a condition called myelofibrosis, which is not curable and so we know at some point we will have to make a decision, but for now he is wagging his tail and is eating again, so we will see how he goes .
