Well we went the vet today. I think I cried almost the entire time I was there despite trying not to. The spot in his eye appears to be a calcium build up from the high level of calcium in his blood. The vet got a good look at this eyes and did not see anything else wrong with them. They did blood work which of coarse will not be back until Monday. He did gain 2 pounds over the last two months. The vet said that is good because with cancer you usually see a loss of weight, but is still afraid he's got cancer hiding somewhere. In addition Jordan has a small buldge on the right side of his body just behind the ribs. The vet tried to feel (Jordan is not a cooperative patient) and said it felt like his kidney. He said it's hard to tell but feels slightly enlarged and is suggesting that I have a repeat ultrasound done by one of their vets. He said that if all he wants to eat is chicken baby food to let him eat that because it's more important that he continues to eat something. So basicly I have no answers, but at least the spot in his eye is not a confirmation of cancer. In addition he said it would be OK to take Jordan with me to Michigan for Thanksgiving. So that's the latest not much of an update and I'm trying deperately to hold it together and not make my anxiety affect how he feels.
