Linus in Columbia

Linus is spending his afternoon at the small animal hospital in Columbia getting bloodwork, FNA, xrays and lord knows what else! We're supposed to pick him up at 5:15pm and they will give us the lowdown on treatment options. Most likely he will have surgery again to remove more tumor plus possible jaw bone in an effort to get all the abnormal cells out. The doctors also noted that his lymph gland on that side of his neck is a bit larger than the other side so they'll aspirate to see if there are any melanocytes in there and determine if it is spreading. I really wish I had brought him here first as they seem capable to do a full workup on him.


Linus has been accepted to the clinical trial of IL12 or IL2! More info to follow.
