    My senior blackie Boo needs prayers;*Update 8/28*; post #123; great new update!

    He just hasn't been himself since he started his thyroid meds and he went in for his checkup today for blood work. He's been moving so slowly and carefully, almost as though he's in pain, so I had Dr. Lee take an x-ray. There's something there in his stomach. It doesn't look like food; it's rather oddly shaped, like a fleur-de-lis or a banana w/the peel down on both sides. I could tell by the expression on Dr. Lee's face that he was troubled and he said "I've never seen anything like this. Food looks like crumbs or something. I don't know what this is". Boo also has elevated white and red blood cells and Dr. Lee asked if Boo has been peeing inappropriately and I told him 'no' and Boo has been off Clomicalm for a while now. He feels that he could also have cystitis, so he started him on Clindamycin. Boo also lost a lb. and the thyroid meds are supposed to help him gain weight. Dr. Lee said that we'll wait to see what the blood tests results are and in a couple of days we should take another x-ray. If the x-ray hasn't changed, then he said that the sure way to find out what it is would be to do exploratory surgery.

    Boo is 18 so I guess I shouldn't expect him to be healthy forever but he and his sister Peeka were my first "official" rescues. He's always been such a laid back cool cat and to see him move as though he's in pain hurts me, too. I can't trust my instincts w/my cats any more. Several times I thought it was the end for Puddy and it wasn't and when I thought she was back to her old self, she died. So I'm out to sea here.

    Poor Boo. At 18, I would expect a bit of pain, arthritis, etc. But a funny looking item in the stomach?? That is strange.

    I hope it is something that can move out on its own, surgery at 18 seems risky.

    Prayers for Boo.

    I am so sorry to read that Boo is not feeling well. I pray that everything turns out well for him and that he won't need to have the surgery.

    Get well wishes from my two blackies, Calvin & Hobbes. At 18 you'd expect to move a little slow but I hope he isn't in pain. Sending all good prayers and vibes to you and Boo.
