    Angel Poppy - was My Poppy has cancer

    Last week I learned that my sweet girl Poppy has cancer...

    Lymphoma or perhaps carcinomatosis (lining of lymph nodes or intestine or somewhere and/or mesentery, something like this).

    Nothing to do, it seems, but give her steroids to keep her comfortable.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.

    Oh Pat, I'm terribly sorry to hear this. I know you will keep her comfortable as long as she is with you. Wish there was something to do about it, though.

    Sending lots of love and comfort to you both - and to Sparkler, too.

    Pat, how sad. I know that feeling in the gut when you find out your baby has cancer.

    I hope she is kept comfortable for a long time.

    Thank you, Karen and Candace. Poppy acts just the same as always. This is kind of so hard to believe.
