Oh such good news!! He looks so wonderful prancing around in the video and he looks like he is feeling so well. It was a thrill to see him eating with such passion! It was so heartwarming to see such a positive video of the precious baby. Thanks for sharing them and keep up the good work. You three are in my thoughts and prayers always!!

I also was amazed at how well Biscuit was moving around. I did not expect that and think things look good. I am praying he will continue to be regulated by the meds.

You guys are the best parents ever! Hugs to all of you.

Vinh and Ann, thank you so much for updating us! I haven't been on SM much due to health issues, but am so excited to read the update! I am so very, very thankful to hear that little Biscuit is showing some improvement. You are absolutely the best judge of his progress and his willingness to fight this disease, and it's a testament to your love that you have devoted yourselves so willingly to his battle. Having had a dog with serious health issues, I'm convinced they let us know when it's time or if they want to continue to battle on, and it looks like Biscuit is determined to continue to be a little warrior! I'm thrilled that he has made progress, and thank God for that. You will continue to be in my prayers.

Default Biscuit's Marathon!

Good Morning Team Biscuit! or afternoon/evening wherever you may be on this beautiful planlet!

Well Biscuit continue to do well on all fours. Now that he is able to be mobile on his own he is now on a peeing, pooping, and pacing marathon!

He has been walking for the last 6-7 hours none stop! When he is tired or his legs gives in, he'll pause for a moment to regain strength and off he goes again! lol My wife has been exhausted watching over him for the last week only able to squeeze in a few hours of sleep here or there so right now she's out cold and I'm on Biscuit's watch!

Since he's mobile again, Mommy and Daddy are both back on Poop Patrol since Biscuit is known to go buffet on this poop whenever he gets the chance.

The latest CBC results came back and his white blood cell is a bit low. Dr. Sisson as requested that we do another CBC tomorrow 2/26 to see if his while blood cell continue to be low or has improves which will determine if we will gives us the OK to give the monthly schedule 8mg of Lumostine.

Dr. Sisson has also intructed us to lowered the next montly schedule dose of Cytarabine from 0.2 mls every 12 hours for 4 doses, down to 0.1 mls every 12 hours for 4 doses.

Summary of Biscuit Meds are as follow:
Prednisone 10mg twice per day for next 8 days, then down to 7.5mg twice per day for 14 days and let Dr. Sisson knows how he doing so he can decide the next schedule of Prednisone dosage. He said he won't lowered the Prednisone too low as long as Biscuit continue to live.

Felbamate 100mg every 8 hours
Phenobarbital 24.3mg every 12 hours
Mycophenolate 30mg every 12 hours
Leflunomide 20mg once per day
Lumostine 8mg once on 27th day of month
Cytarabine 0.1mls on 11th and 12th of every month, every 12 hours 4 dose total


Biscuit has seem to recover the full use of his mouth and jaws yet and he can only licks up soft liquid food or water at this time. We're hoping this would change soon so he can actually get to enjoy some of his favorite treats.


Biscuit and his parents want to express our gratitude for the continuing and overwhelming support and prayers. It is trully an honor and privilege to have everyone by ourside on this journey. Thank you and god bless everyone!

What wonderful and encouraging news about little Biscuit and still hoping and praying that Biscuit continues to improve. I hope that both of you will be able to get some very much needed rest now that Biscuit is starting to turn the corner to better health.
