Angel's ultrasound results:
Shows increased intestinal thickness as well as markedly enlarged lymph nodes in several areas.
Could be large cell lymphoma, small cell lymphoma, or IBD (irritable bowel disease).
Oncological biopsy would tell us exactly what she has.
The vet gave us more anti-nausea meds, B12 shots, steroids, and pain meds to administer. She said we could try oral chemotherapy meds, once we've considered what we want to do, regardless of getting that biopsy.
Although she cannot know without tests, the vet believes it's large cell, which is aggressive, and terminal.
The Hubby and I have to discuss.
Foremost, is Angel's comfort.
The vet tech's said that Angel was very vocal all day, ornery, and refused every flavor of food offered. To us, there is a lot of life left in her, and none of us are ready to throw in the towel. Once home, Angel ate well, found her favorite napping spot, and hunkered down for a rest. She has a small shaved patch on her belly.
Thank you to everyone for every purr and wish for a good outcome.
I've turned off comments today, but I offer a jigsaw puzzle of Angel, artified!
