I wanted to give an update to anyone who remembered Miles Davis. He was diagnosed with lymphoma almost 3 years ago. Well, to our surprise and amazement, he is still in remission. He's alive and well and showing no sign of the disease.

I am posting this because I wanted to let you know what treatments he got--just in case someone is unlucky enough to have a little guy come down with the same disease.

Miles Davis had 6 months of chemotherapy. Then, he had a new procedure called T-cell expansion therapy. Neither procedure was terribly invasive. The chemo made him a bit queasy at first, but mostly he tolerated it well. He did lose a lot of hair, but most of it grew back, with the exception of his tail feathers--which are still a little sparse. The T-cell expansion therapy made him stink, but otherwise no side effects on him.

Hope this helps anyone who might be facing the same problem.
