Thanks so much for your purrs for me. You know, I feel fine, and today my oncologist said I put on weight!
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that my node is back to normal size. The bad is that it is a funky color and my small intestine wall has thickened. My doc said this could me I have a form of small cell lymphoma, or that I have IBD. I haven't been sick at all, so Mom elected not to have me cut open to see exactly what is inside me.
Dr. Bulakowski explained that if I have this type of lymphoma, it is generally not very aggressive and that the condition can be managed very well with chemo and steroids. I am going to be ultrasounded every month, so we can keep an eye on things and of course if I get sick, I will be back sooner.
But for now, so far, so good.
Thanks for sharing this with us, Joey.
We will keep on purring for your well being.
Joey I don't know if you know this but I had IBD and we have a website with a ton of information on it. I'll have to email you the link because Catster has fleas.
