I just want to post a quick update for those of you who are following my cats’ journey with cancer. On Tuesday David and I took both cats to the vet for checkups, lab work, and ultrasounds. Both cats’ lab work looks good, except for some lowered red blood cells in Patrick. Because of this, though, the cats get to have steak once a week!
Lucy’s tests showed that he is still in remission, and Patrick’s testing over the last month or so continues to indicates that his cancer is not spreading. Thus, chemotherapy is working for him. He is having issues eating at night, though, which he has let me know is because his “belly hurts” in the evenings. So what we are doing right now is ensuring that he gets all of his food before about 5 pm. This seems to be working because his weight is holding steady.
So overall, things are going well. I am happy that our life is calmer, and will continue to working on keeping the house as stress free as possible for the sake of both me and the cats.
Here’s a picture of Lucy from yesterday:
Thanks for reading! I’ll keep you posted on how the cats are doing!
