First - since Lord Shiloh has been sick so much lately, I almost forgot to put up the header for his birthday month - March.
Now, not so good news. In my last post I talked about our local vet visit and the results from that which mainly involved the enlarged liver and fluid around Lord Shiloh's lungs - I was grateful there was no cancer diagnosis since I suspected that. After our visit yesterday at the Kansas State University Animal Health Center, it confirmed that what I had feared all along - actually worse.
I am glad Lord Shiloh adored the vet student who helped so much. Ok, so while the aspirate bx. still was 100% inconclusive, the blood work suggested otherwise. The ultrasound showed multiple nodules in the liver and spleen. Shiloh has several lymph glands that are swollen as well as an enlarged adrenal gland. The chest x-ray showed fluid around the lungs. One of the high readings on the blood work involved the kidneys which was a change just from this past Saturday at our local vet. We got all the results except for the aspirate bx. while we were still there. The vet called my sis' cell when we were on our way home with the results of the aspirate bx but it ended up going to her voice mail - we did get the inconclusive - it could not be 100% conclusive but all the other signs point to metastatic neoplasia. She said if I had any questions to call her on Wednesday which I plan on doing. I was told that he might have a couple more days - the cancer is too aggressive and too widespread for any treatment.
He is finally sleeping again - has been up and down all night.
And I need to go for now..........
