Hang in there, friend. I wish I had that same calmness. I tend to panic easily, get scared easily, and cry so hard very easily.Maria Bayote I am so sorry that you returned to see this after being away. This is not the kind of thing I hoped to greet you with after your journey. I had hoped it would all be sorted out before then. We have had lots of medical help and lots of good wishes, hope and prayers so I still hold faith that we may find answers or solutions. When we first discovered there was a mass, the doctors envisioned a large tumor. This is not what we expected. We wait for more information and do not know anything for sure yet except that whatever it is, it is presenting oddly. Perhaps prayers, hopes and wishes are helping Banjo. She is content, active and not exhibiting pain. She is eating very well and all systems are functioning. Thank you my dear friend for adding your prayers.
When you talk with the vet school again, mention this...that many cats are affected, and you have a small "cancer cluster." Ask if there are any studies going on that your clowder might qualify for. SIGH...probably not, but it doesn't hurt to ask! Perhaps some PhD hopeful might be interested! You never know!One of the great things about that vet school is that they are looking at everything mentioned above.
