Eddie has Lymphoma of the GI-track

This is good. The best news in days. The cancer is in her Duodenum, the entry point to the intestines which collects from the stomach, liver, and bile ducts. They were afraid it was the more common Adenocarcinoma which does not respond to chemo. However, Lymphoma does respond to chemo very well.

It's not easy--chemo isn't fun for anyone, and Eddie is weak enough that it might kill her. But the doctors are sounding much happier, much more certain that Edie might survive this.

Nothing is for certain except for death, and Eddie isn't a young puppy. But I like odds which have possible good outcomes, and I'm willing to sieze upon this hope.
