Right now Michael, my sweet kitty, is at the animal hospital. He is having his mouth x-rayed and biopsed. He may have cancer. Squamous Cell Carinoma. On the other hand, the lump in his mouth could be an absess, and he could merely need to have the tooth pulled. Or it could be both. He could have a tooth abcess and cancer.
Michael's veteranarian told John and me that the cancer is a very agressive kind, and if he has it that he won't live for long, even if he had the tumor excised or radiated. If it turns out that Michael does have cancer, he will have to be put to sleep.
So I have been crying some. I know that I shouldn't panic, that there is a fifty percent chance it is not cancer, but I am scared. I love my kitty.
Okay, on other news, John is neutropenic again. He has almost no immune system. We have no explanation for this. We are not going to panic b/c this has happened many times since the transplant, and he has made it without catching anything, and becomming ill or dying. So we are learning to take this all in stride, LOL.
Uhm, just a little bit of stress in our lives, LOL. But the Lord will help us no matter what. He steadies us and keeps us from panicking.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, we are not at our new place yet, LOL. We are at my parent's house. We made a temporary move to my parent's b/c our place does not become available until September 1. Yes, we have to move again in about two weeks. To get settled allover again! All that moving. Yuck. But we think we have help this time. Praise God for that.
Unfortunately, the phone company said they will not be able to hook up my AOL connection until the middle of September. Arghhhhh! How will I communicate if I have no ISP connection, LOL? I hadn't realized how I have come to love my computer, LOL!
Okay, I must go. I have one thousand things to do today. Please pray for my Michael. We may not get the results back for several days, because he is getting a biopsy. And please pray for John, that he doesn't get a fever, via an infection. If he does, who will give me my insulin shots? I will have to give them to myself, LOL! Horrors! BTW, my insulin shots have been going well and my sugar levels are doing better. Okay, must run.
Love you all lots,
