|Update on Greenlee (Evening of 7/31/12):
The ultrasound showed a partial gallbladder bile duct obstruction. The question now becomes "what exactly is obstructing it?" Greenlee is currently under anesthesia getting an aspirate on her liver and gallbladder. They will send it in to a pathologist and they will take a look at the sample of cells. They will look for signs of cancer or bacteria. They are also going to test Greenlee for FIV. FIV is associated with Lymphoma, and Lymphoma can cause Bile Duct Obstructions.
They are looking at all their options and trying to rule everything out. It doesn't look good for Greenlee, though. My dad says we don't have the money to spend $5,000 dollars on a cat, if she happens to need surgery or if she needs more care than our budget will allow. He bluntly said "We will put her to sleep if her needed care goes beyond our budget"
I am also extremely worried about our 2 other cats if she has FIV, which is contagious to other cats, what's their future looking like?
I am distraught, sad, and frustrated at my dad. He will spend $500,000 on our dogs, but I guess he doesn't think our cats are worth it
