It was really no surprise that this afternoon the neurologist confirmed Monty’s GME relapse, so we’re starting over with his treatment of: 15mg Prednisone twice daily, 50mg Cyclosporine once daily, 10mg Omeprazole, and he had the first of several planned Cytosar injections today.
The good news is that he seems to be responding favorably to the heavy medication as he is more active and aware. The doctor did note a neurological deficiency with his left rear leg, which coincided with the abnormality we experienced with his front left leg. Luckily his CBC levels were back to a normal level after being low earlier this year so at least we are not starting with a treatment deficit as that would not bode well for his long term outlook. It’s going to be a rough couple of weeks to get through the worst of the side effects, but we remain hopeful we can make it through with him.
