Updates.....

Well, we got bad news & maybe more bad news. Josh does have cancer, he's having a chest x-ray & bone scan today to see if it's spread. He goes Tuesday to Springfield (IL) to schedule his surgery.

Mama finally heard back from her ultrasound, she has a "moderately large polyp" in her uterus. She goes Monday to a gynecologist v-e-t to see what to do about that. She wants him to just give her a hysterectomy & get it over with. And since the fun just keeps on coming.....she got a call from her primary care v-e-t this morning asking if the ER v-e-t told her that she needed a follow-up CT scan after the one she had on May 4th. Uh...no, he said it was clear. Well, apparently it showed that Mama has a "nodule" on the tail (?) of her pancreas. Wasn't it nice of them to let her know a month later?!? So, now Mama has to go back to the hospital on Tuesday for another CT scan. Because as her v-e-t said "We don't want to wait until it's large & find out that it's pancreatic cancer."

We know that yet again, this isn't about us cats, but if you could spare some more purrs, purrayers, tail-wags........whatever, we could sure use them. Thanks efurrybuddy, we love you guys!
