salem update

Post by jeanebellini on Sat Jun 02, 2012 8:48 pm

thought i'd better start one that's just salem in here...sorry i haven't been around...but i'm trying to keep myself distracted. Sun i think it was i found a lump on salem's neck and behind his ear. i got the folks upstairs to take him to the vet the next day (think it was mOn..or Tues..it was the next day whatever). he stayed overnight at the vet and they gave him antibiotic cuz they thought it might be an infected lymph node. well, he came home Weds i think it was(its hard for me to keep track of time esp since i'm not working but a couple days a week now). and i had to watch to see if the lump got smaller. it seemed to be a little smaller but i wanted him checked out and they took him in on Fri. He got that needle thing ..the thing where they put the needle into the lump and extract cells and send them off to be analysed.
We find out the verdict on Mon.
he seems to be doing pretty well to me..he's sleeping in his usual places and he'll eat his portion of three different cans of food if i give them that many and yeah i've been giving that many..if they clean the plates i will give them more about 4 hrs later.
But of course i'm scared...i try to keep busy and doing things and not talking about it but i'm scared. esp since its in the same area that carter has his 'mass' and you know what happened to him.
SO please, whatever you're inclided to do..pray, send vibes, light a candle whatever..please send out some healing for that poor ol puss. He's been through a lot in just the past 4 months and he deserves to have a good life at least for a few more years.
thanks

Sad I'm so sorry, Jeane.

My experience with Archimedes' cancer taught me that it's the quality, not the quantity of life that matters. Keep Salem happy and with you as long as he's comfortable. Your love will mean more to him than anything else. Listen to him. He is a wise kitty and will tell you how he's doing.

Many hugs to you!!!!

Hi, Tia Jeane. It's Antonio. Meowmy told me the sorrowful news about Salem. Meowmy agreed to
type this for me even though it is sad for her. Tia Jeane, Salem is not frightened, we cats understand death and
we are not frightened by it. Salem knows that you have loved and cherished him and that without you he would not have
had the good years that he had. Salem also knows that when the time comes you will let him go because you love him so much.

I know you know in your heart of hearts that this is true. Salem, Buddy and the others who have gone before them
will always be with you. As long as you are remembered with love you will never die. I love you Antonio cat

P.S. Tia Becky is very wise, and I send you purrs of comfort.

OhGodNo..................my heart aches for you Jeane. ((((((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))))

If the cancer hasn't spread to the lymph nodes, the vet can put a shot of steroid into the lumps to shrink them, then go in and surgically remove them. And that hopefully will be the end of the dreaded cancer coming back. I know it's a tiny glimmer, but any glimmer of hope is better than none.

here's what i found out when i got home today....(sorry its a cut and paste from what i put on my facebook page but i know most of you guys aren't on FB)...
salem update (and excuse me i wind up just cut and pasting this elsewhere)....good news...when the vet looked at him today i said it was amazing...either its gone into remission or the person who read the results of the test was wrong. Can't say Salem's 100% cancer free BUT the lump either isn't there or is really gone down. He hasn't lost a single ounce since he first went to see this new vet back in Feb.Which is a GREAT sign! Today he got a shot that is sort of like a chemo shot and will take down any inflation etc.
He goes in in two more weeks to be checked again.
So PLEASE keep the prayers, vibes, good thoughts coming and the candles lit. lets prove those tests wrong for GOOD!

Does anybody mind of I mention a Psalm. Psalm 118:23-24. If you have to Google it
look for the King James Version. Actually read the entire Psalm. I recommend the King James
because it is the most poetic.
