News about Camie

Mom finally got the news about Camie and it isn't good. She took Camie to a surgical vet specialist today, and he basically said the tumor in her neck is inoperable. They did x-rays to see if it had spread to her lungs or chest and it hadn't. So then then did an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that the tumor was very vascular and that it she must have torn a blood vessel or something and that was lead to her huge amount of swelling a week ago. The ultrasound also showed that the tumor has either started to spread down to her chest, or it was a bloodclot.

Mom asked the vet if Camie was any pain and he assured her she was not. He said that if the tumor bleeds again, it probably wouldn't be good. When Mom asked him how much time Camie had left, he said it all depended on whether the tumor bleeds or not. It could be a week or a month. We are going to take each day as it comes and spend as much time with our Camie as we can.


We want to thank everyone for all of the purrs lately. We know we have been very bad at leaving comments. We have tried to visit as many of you as we can each day, but Mom doesn't always give us time to comment. Thank you all for continuing to be our friends.

Oh no, poor Camie. We'll purr fur a miracle. Knowing what's coming gives us time to remember to love them every day and spend some good time with them. It doesn't make it any easier tho.
