Thanks everyone and thanks Susan for posting for me
I couldn`t get to sleep in the end.
I didn`t realise I`d have to leave him there
God, I`m thick sometimes.
So, the vet took a very thorough history. Kitty threw a tantrum in his carrier while this was going on. He meowed for the whole journey there, then she got him out to change the pad when we got there because he`d had a wee. Then he was put back in with a clean pad.
OMG, he had the biggest tantrum
His meows were getting more and more annoyed and then he sat there taking mouthfulls of the pad and ripping them off and spitting them out
That seemed to get rid of his frustration because she got him out again and he layed down on her notes and started purring!
So, she said they would repeat the x-rays and do a ct scan and utrasound of his abdomen and a fine needle biopsy.
I`ve just had a phone call from the night vet though. He said Kitty is doing well and seems pretty much normal in himself but they repeated the x-rays and there is a mass in his chest
They want to take a closer look and do ct scan and maybe put an endoscope down his throat as well and he said they may not be able to do all this and the bloods until tuesday when they have full staff back and they can catch up with the lab work
The other thing is that the mass is very close to his heart and he said it looks like it is near or around his aorta and main vessels. This should show better on the ct. He said they would need to take a sample to make a firm dianosis of the mass but non surgical route would be very risky as if they are a bit off they could damadge the lungs or hit the aorta and he would bleed to death.
I wish he didn`t have to stay there so long. It`s not like I can just go and visit him.
They all meet at 9am there and discuss their cases so he said he will ring me again after that.
I keep hearing little noises and thinking it`s him, then I remember he`s not here
Thanks for the support everyone:
If Kitty knew everyone was thinking of him I`m sure he`d want me to pass on lots of
