Another Ghost update...
Ghost is staying overnight at the vet to have surgery in the early AM for a mass biopsy. Some may remember my posts over past 3 months where we’ve been back and forth at the vet due to weight loss, excessive vomiting, originally reclusive and strange behavior, and the x-rays and physical exam then showed a mass in stomach area. He’s had multiple x-rays and an ultrasound and a needle biopsy but nothing conclusive. No cancer was found, but ultrasound biopsy is inconclusive because sample may not have cancer cells in it that are there. He’s been on depo (a steroid) and mostly improving and doing great the last couple months acting himself. We thought the results were pointing to stomach/irritable bowel issues and I relaxed and stopped worrying. Some vomiting continued and the weight loss continued and I got nervous again and brought him back today.
I wasn’t originally going to spend the $$$ for surgery biopsy because it’s a lot and I’ve spent sooo much already without answers, and he seemed mostly fine on the surface, but when the vet felt him, he was very concerned today. Also, I’m leaving in 2 weeks for a 5-week work contract out of state and we felt it’s best to have conclusive answers (that this biopsy will provide) before I go, to best know what to do next. He’s staying at home during my work trip with the rest of the pack and my roommate (whose company he enjoys when I’m not home) so he’s in good hands and unfortunately I can’t bring him with me, already tried. 😕
I’m just super nervous what the results will be. It will be good to finally know, despite its high price tag, but I’m so scared it will be bad news. To be honest, I’ve prepared myself months ago for bad news, and I’m ready to face that if that is, but I’m super worried about him while I’m gone. I just hope if it is bad news like cancer, he will be ok while I’m gone. I don’t know what I’ll do if he gets super sick while I’m away. 😭
Anyway, thoughts and prayers for my 👻 weirdo please!! (Also, isn’t it the worst having to leave our babies overnight at the vet? Especially our nebs, who are so sensitive and attached to us.) #nebelung #nebelungsofinstagram #cat #catsofinstagram
