Dec 3 UPDATE - We have some pain meds to give Yoko if she seems uncomfortable or agitated. We gave her some last night and she slept well. The tumor is in her jaw bone and is growing rapidly. She can still breathe comfortably and is eating. I am giving her lots of anti-cancer herbs and nutrients in a bit of Catsip to help her feel comfy as long as possible. The vet seemed to think we only had days left so we will savor each moment until it is time for her to go to the Bridge. I know Joey and Chica are with her now and will guide her in this transition. Thank you all so much for your kind words of support and friendship. We lvoe you all.
Dec 2 UPDATE - not good. It is what I suspected - a rapidly growing mass under her jaw and already pushing up under her tongue. Nothing they can do for her. I do not want her to suffer but other than the lump, she is eating well, and perky, alert etc. This will be hard to know when to let her go before she is too far along. All we can do is love her and make her comfortable until we know her time is near. Keep us in your thoughts.
Mom took these two shots of me for her 365 photo project one day when I was looking out the window watching bird TV. I have to go to the V-E-T today cuz I have a lump on my lower jaw. It came fast since I was at the V-E-T a couple of months ago and Mom is very worried. I feel OK tho, considering my CRF and hyper thyroid. We will let you know how it goes at the V-E-T.
Please send purrs for me and for our friend Brian from Brian's Home blog whose sister Gracie is in the hospital and all the other kitties are sick too.
