From Prince's meowmy ~ The week before Easter, I found a small lump on Prince's right side - near the shoulder blade. It felt rather like a small bb under his skin.. nothing to normally become excited over. But, with the issues of many friends in recent months, I decided to take him in with me on Wednesday (4th) with Baby G when she got her shot. Dr. Booker wanted to do a needle aspiration of the spot and stain it. She did and said there were some unusual cells present and wanted to remove the lump. She first said that Friday would be good but that was right before Easter and I just could not face the possibility of his not awakening from anesthesia as have two precious kitties in the recent past. So, I opted to have it removed on the 10th, which was Clawdia's 13th birthday.
To my great relief, Prince did beautifully and there were no problems as he was coming out of the anesthesia. While they had him out, they cleaned his teeth.
The waiting for the biopsy was the worst part, or so I thought. I got those results on, of all days, Friday 13th. The results were not what I would have hoped them to be. It seems that there is something going on which could be cancerous. So, the person who did the biopsy wanted to do stains and examine everything much more in detail to determine what exactly is going on with Prince. Dr. Booker said that after we get those results, we may have to contact an oncologist. I did go by and get his initial report and have a page of medical terms I do not understand nor have I chosen to look up for fear it will further upset me. All I know is that Prince may be facing cancer and I would like to ask all his friends to please lift him up in prayer. He is such a precious boy and enjoys his life so much. He is my clown, my biscuit maker, my boy who loves to play with toys (especially late night when he carries them around making loud sounds). He loves everyone who visits us... almost to the point of being obnoxious. Please pray that Dr. Booker was able to get ALL of this and that Prince will not have to face a very frightening future with cancer.
This is the first time I have been able to even think of writing much about it. I have been very upset, to say the least.
