Buddy Can’t Catch a Break

The biopsies are back, and Buddy has lymphoma. AND, the oncologist is out until Monday. I called others and it’s even worse for getting appointments so I can’t do anything for him for three days while he gets worse.

My vet said a weekend won’t make the difference between life and death and gave me some instructions for what to do.

I knew he had taken a turn for the worse weeks ago and I just wish biopsies had been done then. But all his recent blood work was good, he had gained weight, so it didn’t seem indicated. I should have trusted my instincts.

Anyway, his stomach was clear, his large intestine and bowel have IBD, and the small intestine is what came back positive for lymphoma.
