Well he is awake and on IV but the vet is still in surgery so I have to wait until later to find out how it went

But at least the surgery went well

We just picked him up, his blood work is all good and his white blood count was lower.

He lost 1/4 lb this week so she wants to keep an eye on his weight so I get to weigh him daily, he has a tube to let fluids leak that needs to be cleaned twice daily to make sure it doesn't get covered up.

His blood work showed slightly (but not high) elevated levels of blood urea nitrogen and creatine

The mass had some blood and fat in it and has been sent away for testing and we will get the results in about a week.

He is kinda freaked out and is finally staying still (he was running in circles in his cage - which for a big cat is difficult - and panting really heavily. But has calmed down a little and is drinking some water.

The other cats badly want out of the bedroom to see him but they keep freaking him out.

He goes in on Monday evening for another check up and to have the tube pulled out and stitched up and the results should be back next Thursday for the mass, so I guess I just have to wait

Oh, I do not envy your situation at all..I'll be praying that the tests come back normal and that everything will be okay.

I am so glad that Scully is back home.
I hope that you and your sweet baby have an uneventful vet visit on Monday.
Until this is all sorted out, Scully will remain in my prayers.

Well he is more alert today, and ate a few kibbles which is good, the wet food he turned his nose up at and he has trouble drinking with the collar, it keeps freaking him out and he runs away from whatever he is at but the collar is still there so he runs more

My boss has a new big dog crate (his dog was in it once and was so scared of it he doesn't have the heart to put her back in, she was abused and they think she may have been left for hours in a crate ) he is going to bring over so we can put him in that so he won't hurt himself running away from things (and it will keep Boomer from grooming him) and I can put his meds on his food and let him eat as he wants instead of trying to force him to eat them in case one of the other furbles gets in and eats them (long shot I know but I worry about stuff like this, especially as the room he is in is usually their litter room and they haven't quite worked out that I moved some of the boxes)

He is also having some walking problems on the side where the stitches are, I guess he gets up and starts to walk but feels the pain so abruptly stops which doesn't do well on my all hardwood floors so I put down an old comforter as a rug for him and its helping a little with the sliding.

He is letting me clean the areas and srain which is good too!

Other than that he is playing me large and acting like he can't do ANYTHING for himself and I absolutely have to do it for him after putting him through this ordeal!!!.

We have just walked in the door from getting his stitches out, it was a tumour but wasn't cancerous
He will need to go back in a few weeks for another check up, but other than that he looks fine!
He finally can take his collar off which he is super happy about (and so am I because listening to him lick his collar trying to get to the stitches was annoying)

Well he had a final check up and all looks good

The incision has healed well and he should be fine (except for looking a little silly with a big bald patch in his excessive fur), I gave him a bath last night and took a pic to send of him wet to my sister and realised that the red marks from the incision are nearly gone:

Even shaved & wet, you are a handsome boy Scully.
I am glad that you are doing so well.
