Can’t Function

May 22nd, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized

I’m waiting to hear from the vet this afternoon about Buddy’s blood and urine test results. It’s not looking good. Right now he’ll only eat baby food. For those of you who own cats, you know that is never a good sign. Maybe it’s this thing I’ve already forgotten the name of and is treatable. But maybe it’s the lymphoma finally getting the upper hand.

The results should be available after 3, I will post an update then. Tonight is the Choral Society benefit. It’s always a big, wonderful party, but getting dressed up and partying is the last thing I feel like doing.

UPDATE 5:30: It could be pancreatitis, and treatable, and not the end stages of the lymphoma. I’m starting him on antibiotics and we’ll know in three to five days. He’ll either start to get better or he won’t. Mood, better.

As always, I can’t bear the idea of life without my cat. He’s always right there.

    Sweet Buddy. I hope the news is good (well treatable… you know what I mean…).

    And Buddy will outlive us all, I bet. Miss Mouse went through something similar (not cancer, but an illness the vet suggested euthanizing her when things got bad). She’s now 17 and more active than I am.

    Oh wow. Impressive!!

    Buddy has lymphoma, so I don’t think he’s going to make it to 17 (he’s 12 now) but he seems better to me today. This may be wishful-perception, but he definitely seems better. So I’m in a good mood at the moment.

    And thank you for the crossed fingers and good vibes. As I said, he seems better so something is working!
