On Thursday, my husband took Selina to the oncologist. Apparently the techs all had to come into the room because there was word there was an adorable kitty in the house. She purred when the techs and doc came in. She is such an easy going little lady. But enough small talk! The oncologist is not recommending any chemo as the cancer is gone! The surgeon was not sure if that would be a possibility, so had prepared us for that option. Howver, she did notice that her thyroid has a small slip which she has some cocern over. She did say that might be as a result of major changes in Selina’s life over the last month, so its something to monitor. The other thing to monitor is the reoccurance of cancer. So she will have chest xrays every three months for the next year. If it continues to stay clear, we can bump the time frame to 4-6 months.
The doctor did stress to my husband that the osteosarcoma has shortened Selina’s life expectacy. While I think I knew that, I didn’t want to hear it. And I still don’t. One thing I have learned and was reminded from this site is that we honestly never know what will happen and we need to live each day to its fullest. They say cats have nine lives, and she may have used one up, but she still has 8 left! We will be pawsative and she will keep kicking with her good back leg!
