Samoa Says

Update on Samoa

Samoa's Mawmee here to give you an update on the day we've had. Most of you that are on Facebook already know about this, and because it has been a very tiring day, I'm going to repost my FB posts so you can be up to date on the latest findings.

Upon ultrasound, Samoa has a 6 cm mass in her abdomen near one of her kidneys. Some blood work was sent off (with results in a few days) to determine if it is an adrenal gland cancer. Apparently this is rare in kitties. If it isn't that, it is some other type of cancerous mass.

We've been back and forth between our vet and the ER vet where there is an internist who did her ultrasound. Here is one of the Facebook posts:

Latest Samoa update: She is back at our vet's office for more fluids/potassium through her IV. I did get a call that she ate some food which was good to hear as she is very weak from all that she has been through since last night. I'll pick her up in about an hour (as they don't have anyone supervising over night) and she will go back tomorrow for more fluids/potassium. I also have potassium type gel to give her twice a day. The mass is next to her right kidney. It could be cancer from her adrenal gland - blood work was sent off to check for that and we won't know anything for several days. If not that, then a cancerous mass of some kind, but not operable. We'll take it one day at a time, but it is not looking good for my sweet Samoa. Thank you so much for all the uplifting purrs and prayers.

Thank you for keeping Samoa in your purrs!
