A Difficult Day for this Cat Family
Today was a day that Julie and I have been dreading. Our eldest cat Cassie, who's 14, has developed a great thirst lately.Other than that, she seems pretty much normal. A visit to our regular veterinarian came back with normal blood work, but crystals in the urine, and an enlarged thyroid. The recommendation? Get her checked at a special clinic.
What we found out today wasn't good. While still not confirmed to be cancerous, the enlarged thyroid is actually a tumor that's growing pretty quickly. It's approximately the size of a walnut. The cost to remove it is even higher than my wildest expectation. The other choices are to get a biopsy done to determine for sure if it's cancerous, or do nothing.
It's going to be a difficult night at our house, no matter the decision. And regardless of the decision, I realize tonight is really only the beginning.
