Charley’s Met Check = All Clear!!!

Great news!!!   Charley saw his oncologist today for chest x-rays and they were clear!  YIPPEE!!!  YAY!!! WOO HOO!!!

 

Dr. Buss said that Charley looks great!   He can’t believe it’s been almost 10 months since his OS met was removed!

 

Our next met check will be on 11/13/14…2 weeks after Charley’s 4 Year Ampuversary!!!

 

Charley decided to wear a bow tie to impress his oncologist today…I think it worked! :)   Here are some pics from today and they are a bit blurry. Charley was a bit anxious today, had difficulty sitting still and was a bit too distracted to pose for pictures.  I don’t blame him at all…he did have his leg amputated there, 5 rounds of Carboplatin, a CT-scan, his OS met removed, 6 rounds of chemo alternating between Doxorubicin and Lomustine, numerous chest x-rays and blood work, countless poking and prodding, 4-1/2 years of oncology visits, etc.   Just a few reasons why Charley is my OS Warrior!

Happy Hump Day from Charley!!!

Charley just wanted to say…..  “HAPPY HUMP DAY!”

 

The weather was so beautiful today, so we just had to go outside and play!

 

And in case anyone has noticed, Charley’s grey facial hair that was underneath his nose and under his chin went away sometime during his last 6 rounds of chemo that ended on 3/12/14.  Charley went grey about 2 years of age and now he looks even younger at 6 years old!  He still has a few greys under his chin but they don’t show up in pictures!  :)

 

Here’s a picture of his “before” grey from 10/28/13 (his 3 Year Ampuversary BTW)….

….and here’s some pics from today 6/11/14 (7 months after his metastatic OS tumor was removed). What a difference, eh?

Happy Happy Happy 6th Birthday Charley!!!

It was a very special birthday for Charley for many reasons!  This was his 4th birthday since being diagnosed with osteosarcoma (he was only 2-1/2 when he was diagnosed)!   It’s  been 5 months since Charley was diagnosed with metastatic OS (the tumor was removed from underneath his amputation scar with clean margins)!  Charley finished his 6 rounds of chemo (alternating between Doxorubicin and Lomustine) on 3-12-14!  Charley celebrated his 41st Month Ampuversary on 3-28-14!  As you can see, we have many reasons to celebrate!

 

Charley 6th-16

 

We had a birthday party yesterday for Charley and my dad!  Charley celebrating 6 and my dad celebrating 74 (on April 1).  Both of the birthday boys enjoyed their special birthday meal.  Charley had his famous meat cake and my dad had a filet….and he even shared some of it with his furry grandson, Charley.

 

The Birthday Boys!

Charley’s Meat Cake Recipe 2014:
*2 pounds of ground sirloin, 2 eggs, and about 1/2 container of cottage cheese (large size container)
*mix all ingredients together in a large bowl
*place ingredients in an 8″ spring form pan (the pan used for cheesecake) on top of a cookie sheet to catch grease from meat
*flatten ingredients level in the pan
*bake at 375 for 45-60 minutes depending on how well you want it cooked; I cooked it for about 50 minutes
*ice meat cake with softened Philly cream cheese
*decorate with turkey bacon
