Kitty is Gone

Today is a very sad day in our lives.  Kitty died this morning.  She was suffering.  She could hardly breathe.  She had a lung tumor.  She stopped eating nearly a week ago.  She stopped drinking water too.  She was released from suffering on this day.  We are profoundly sad and miss her dearly.

I am very sick

August 16, 2013 I am very sick.  I am at the surgical vets and they believe there is an abnormal mass in my chest.  It has made me uncomfortable, and have fluid build up around my lungs.  The vet tapped 75cc out of my chest, and I am breathing much better.  I did not like the procedure at all, but I do feel somewhat better. I have to stay overnight at the vet.  I want to be home with my favorite blanket.  I wonder what will happen next.

August 17, 2013 update.  Well, it appears that that tumor mass in my chest is irritating me, and I am building up fluid around it fairly quickly.  The vet said maybe later today or tomorrow I might get another fluid tap, although I do not like the procedure.  The fun part is that the vet gave me some prednisone, and I am feeling much more perky, but it has not helped my appetite.  I love food, but just not right now.
