Well it is time for more annual check ups. I hate bringing my kids in because I'm always scared they are going to find something seriously wrong with them. Today kitties Morgan and Juliet and Maddie the dog get to make the trip. Maddie seems to have some stiffness in her hips. She's a medium sized dog who is approximately 11 years old, so that's no surprise. Hopefully some pain meds will be all she needs. Morgan has a few lumps on his body. They are flesh toned, which is sort of white since he is a gray kitty. They sort of look like moles and are in several different spots on his body. None of them seem to be growing and they all look the same, so I sure hope they aren't anything to worry about. He is my diabetic heart kitty. He seems to be doing fine with the diabetes. No symptoms that I'm concerned with there. He turned 10 two weeks ago. I'm wondering if I should ask for a blood panel to be done. I think he's considered a senior by now and even though he seems fine, I wonder if it would be good to get a baseline now. He had a full panel done 2 years ago when he was diagnosed with the diabetes. I just hate the thought of something being wrong with my kids. Last time Juliet was in, just a few months ago when she went missing for a couple days and came back dehydrated, he heard a level 1 heart murmur for the first time. I hope that hasn't gotten any worse. I'm just a nervous wreck waiting for 3 pm to come and go. My stomach is in knots and I'm trying not to think about it because I always think the worst.
