I am typing this as I am bawling my eyes out. Things are very very bad
so we went to the specialist this morning who couldnt give me many answers as the results were so inconclusive. To cut a long story short he recommended either a 2nd blood test for a second opinion (the minimum) or a bone marrow test.
He said that I needed to prepare myself for (1) we may not get any more answers or (2) any answer we get is going to be bad.
I said I wanted both done even though the cost of that bone marrow test almost scared me, but I never ever want to question myself and think i could of done more. So I left him there for the day. This afternoon on consultation between the specialist and my vet they agreed that I should bring him home (at least for 24 hours) in the hope that his fever will lessen and he might eat (thinking maybe he is so stressed out which is causing the fever and non eating). I of course thought this was an absolute MAGNIFICIENT idea so I promptly went and picked him up.
The test results came back this evening confirming Erythro-leukaemia.
Worse news (if there can be worse news) is that even though 3 days a go he was not anemic he is now which means the cancer is aggressive.
He is so lethargic and his breathing is so very very labored. This is not the Cedar I know at all. He is not very well and I fear that he is dying in front of my eyes and I can not do a thing to stop it. The specialist mentioned a medicine (?) that we can try but I fear it is just far to late. I know I probably could call the emergancy vet now and get him back on IV fluids (its 9pm at night here) but I dont want him in that cage any more, not when he is so frightened.
oh gosh, this is just my worst nightmare. A week a go he was just running around like normal
