tonpi update  
tonpi has cancer....

at first the main fear was it was heart disease and that he was experiencing heart failure. he has had a heart murmur for most of his life so the obvious guess was his heart was causing all sorts of issues. the wonderful people at the animal hospital (the place is quite amazing...didnt realize animal medicine had advanced so much) put in an oxygen tank and gave him diuretics and such (they did do another chest tap) and had him overnight. this morning they took him out of the tank and checked on how he was. he seemed fine and so they proceeded to check his heart. no issues. they then got the results back from the lab about the fluid that was in his chest and it had carcinoma in it. plus the xrays of his lungs indicated that it was in his lungs. so i get the call and it was decided to get a ultrasound to see if they could find something. nothing... so he has been discharged and is now wondering about the apartment.....

the diagnosis is 'metastic carcinoma unknown primary location'.

i am keeping track of him tonight and tomorrow and hopfully his condition doesnt change. working from home so i can keep an eye on him...

but.. he is dying. i just dont know when it will happen....
