I promised an update on Claire, but I don't have a lot of news tonight.
Claire had her creatine tested for kidney values, and liver enzymes checked, and one was out of range. She was given a saline bag to get fluids tonight, and then she will have a sonogram in the morning. The vet suspected liver failure, but wants to rule out liver cancer. This is not good news by any means, but we don't have the whole picture yet.
Thank you all for purring for her. Mom let her start a diary to make it easier to follow her progress.
Lucy hasn't had time to write so I said I would post an update for her too.
She ate a good breakfast, a whole can of Fancy Feast, and a whole 3 oz can of Purina ProPlan tonight. She seems to find it easier to eat since the tumor burst. The vet explained that this was part of the tumor actually dying because it grew faster than the blood supply feeding it. The rest of the tumor is farther back and while it distorts her beautiful face, it does make it easier for her to chew. They are letting Lucy tell them when the time is right. She is active and alert, and that red-head spirit is not giving up yet.
In just a few days it will be the first anniversary of my crossing to the Bridge. I have been staying close to my family and I have seems lots of tears falling lately. Mom says she is sorry she has not been on-line more. There is just too much to deal with right now.
Thank you for being here for us in these tough times. That is the measure of true friends. They are there when you need them.
I send love and purrs to all, especially my love, Kiwi.
