Tomorrow is Vaccine #5!

One...two...three, four, five, everybody in the car so come on let's ride...
To the vet for...Vaccine Number 5!

Ok, so Lou Bega I'm not.  However, Dr. Ohlfest's lab has regrown Rilley's fifth vaccine from a set of backup tumour cells and it is presently on the way from Minneapolis!  Once Rilley has been given it, there will be just one more to go.  The sixth and final injection was originally going to be administered at his three month follow up visit with Dr. Pluhar next week and despite the delay there has been some discussion of injecting it on schedule.  However that is dependent upon the severity of any reactions to tomorrow's vaccine and we have a feeling that it will most likely be shipped to Dr. Ewing and given to him here in two weeks.

Unfortunately, now that Rilley's fur has pretty much grown in, he needs to be shaved every time he receives an injection.  Poor little guy, especially in the winter.  The one thing he does have going for him is that he seems to be regrowing it quite rapidly now.

I think it's time to wrap up this blog entry.  Sara and I are still looking for a hotel for next week and I think I should help out!
