Just got off the phone with Dr. Heather .

I made the decition to get one of her noides removed . So I bring Ginger in on Thursday and on Friday they will do the surcery early morning .The vet also said she is positive about Ginger having canser , since all her noids are swollen . I guess Ginger is starting to get more hungry and so trying to eat the litter , thats what the vet said due to the meds she is taking . I just wish she would eat more catfood . When I see her now going to the litter I grab her and give her can food to eat , it looks like it helps . I will proberly go ahead and get her in the bedroom where I will do the catlitter box with paper for her , so she wont eat the litter any more .The vet also told me that the treatment wont be to expensive if she would have canser . Well & 300 - $ 500 dollars all together . I would be able to make payments , like I do now . I will go and do the treatments if there is a change for her to live . I would not be able to watch her die like that . I may will have a little trouble with my hubby and may will hear that the rest of my life from him . But thats ok . I love her to much and I think I could not live with myself not trying at least to save her life

hedi, that is good news - as well as can be expected under the circumstances. It is such a hard situation to go through, and every kitty is different. Your vet sounds very good, as with us, Freddie's initial teatment for the leukemia totalled $631. We are starting the last round of antibiotics today. This lady from Canada sent me the name of something that worked well for her up there in Canada, and assuming we have access to it here in the U.S. (I do not have much faith in our FDA), we can start it today, as one last ditch effort for Freddie. Our vet, who by the stroke of luck is also Canadian, is researching it to make sure it is compatible with Freddie before she locates the medicine and gives it to us. So I am praying it is compatible and we have it here in the U.S. SHe seemed to think it was very easy to get, I just had not heard the name before myself. We are at that point where we have a fine line between Freddie fighting and Freddie suffering, so I understand when you say you can't bear to see Ginger feel this way. I want everything to be the BEST possible outcome for you! I think you are extraordinary to have so many kitties and must be a very, very special person.

Hedi did your vet check the fluid from the swollen nodes to confirm its cancer? I'm sure she did but just wanted to ask.

I will be sending more prayers and thoughts for you and Ginger.

Sicy , the vet told me they have to remove one nodes to send it to the lap in order to find out if Ginger got canser . I guess the fluid wont do , to bad it would be much cheaper and easy to do .

Thanks for the prayers and thoughts .

You do what you can for her. Try giving her some shredded chicken in broth to eat, or chicken or turkey baby food. Shredded cheese will work to perk up an appetite, so will catnip. Putting the food in the microwave for a short time 3-6 seconds just to warm it will also help.

Shred your newspaper before you put it in the litterbox, and just love this little girl. Before she goes in for surgery get a shirt all sweaty with your scent and stick it in a plastic bag, take it with you to the vet and ask them to put it in her cage for you.It will help to calm her down.

My heart goes out to both of you during this troubling time. I hope it is not cancer.

Today I brought Ginger in for her Surcery tomorrow , please keep her in your prayers and thoughts . Thank you .

I have worn a T-Shirt for the last 2 days to sleep in and told them at the vet to place it in her little kennel she needs to stay . My poor baby was crying while driving there and she has the cutest baby meow I ever herd . That was so heart breaking for me to listening to while driving there That poor thing has no clue what is going on now . She did really good lately and ate very good and was very alert .She also stop trying to eat the litter . But I could tell she still was not feeling well in her eyes . She had fever sometimes , more in the evening befor I gave her her medication . I will miss her tonight sleeping with me on my pillow , my sweet little girly .
