We are home now

Honey goes back for surgery in the morning.  Tomorrow Honey will have as much of the tumor removed as possible, and 2 two toes.   We are calling it a 2-toe-ectomy.  There is no cancer showing up anywhere else in her body.  Depending on the pathology test returned from this tumor, she might need to have radiation treatments.  There is a possibility that this sarcoma is not cancerous, but could be a inflammatory issue (these do cause a concentration of spindle cells to form).  This is because this is a very rare occurrence in cats to have a sarcoma that isn't an injection site sarcoma (ISS).  Only 7% for cat to have this kind of sarcoma(non ISS).

So Honey will spend the night in the hospital Friday night and come home sometime on Saturday.  The labs will take 3-7 days to return.  possible radiation would start 2 weeks out from surgery, if necessary.

Honey is not a happy camper.  She went thru a slew of tests today, got part of her belly shaved and now has to return to the vets at oh-dark hundred tomorrow morning.

I'm sending Honey lots of purrs for her operation to go well. It sounds at least like this is the least-awful scenario, and I am relieved about that.

We're keeping you and your Honey in our thoughts. Sending lots and lots of healing purrs. We hope everything goes well and she can be home very soon recovering and soaking up the love.

Poor Honey! I hope she feels better soon. If she needs some spare furs after her surgery (I know they shave legs for things, it's just not right, I tell you), I will be glad to have mama gather up some of my spare furs and send them over.

We're purring for Honey and hope all goes well with the surgery...and we hope for the best possible outcome.

She Dances With Cats said...

Oh, gosh -- I hope you find out things are not as bad as you may be thinking. A lot of cats respond very well to chemo and radiation therapy -- they don't lose their hair or get ridiculously nauseated like humans do. The Paws and Effect Gang and I send our purrs to you. <3

Savannah's Paw Tracks said...

Honey has our very best purrs directed on her to heal her right away

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

We are so very sorry to hear that you and Honey are going through this. Janiss told us about you and we wanted to come over and send you hugs and love and encouragement. If Honey ends up in radiation therapy, and you have any questions, give us a shout. (hubby's a radiation physicist).

Many comforting purrs sent your way....
