Annie Needs Your Purrs and Purrayers
Annie had an infection from having her teeth extracted, and had to go under and have an additional root extracted on a tooth that should have only had 2 roots. Then she got another round of antibiotics, and then she had to go back in for a checkup yesterday after her antibiotics were gone. Not good. The upper right gum is totally swollen, and so she had x-rays, and then the vet took out another tooth behind the tooth with the extra root. The tooth taken out was the back molar, which should have been very difficult to extract, but it just pulled right out, as did some bone pieces. And the bone pieces were like styrofoam. So the V-E-T called his V-E-T feline dental buddy and asked his opinion on Annie, and the dental buddy said it really sounded like a tumor to him based on what has happened to Annie over the last month. That's what Annie's V-E-T thought as well. So he is sending off for a biopsy, but he doesn't think it looks good. He said if it is a cancerous tumor, that Annie probably only has about 1-2 months left.
So we are asking for everyone's purrs, purrayers, and tons of hugs.
