Good News/Bad News

Most of you know from Facebook my Billy Elliot has had sudden weight loss so I took him to the Vet's on Monday we did blood, urine and an X-ray's he also received an IV he was dehydrated. The Dr on the initial exam thought he felt something in his tummy. The good news is nothing showed up in the x-ray and the blood and urine tests.  Most everything has been ruled out thyroid, diabetes, kidney failure, UTI's, renal failure, an infection. But the bad news is the Dr. said there has to be something going on to explain his body deterioration.  That hit me hard on Wednesday morning when I heard that. So we will do an Ultra Sound on Tuesday it is possible he said for an x-ray not to pick up a mass or tumor. Please pray for my Billy I don't want to loose him yet. He just turned 12 years old in April.

So sorry to hear it, Dru. Hope the vet will be able to tell you what is wrong with Billy Elliot and make him feel better. Such a sweet photo of the two of you! xo

It's understandable how you feel, Dru, but do not despair. Keep positive while waiting for Tuesday's ultra sound. A big hug to you and Billy Elliot. xo

I will absolutely pray for him. I pray for my own kitty daily. They are family and mean so much to us.
You know I had this weight loss with Garfield this summer. Went from 20 to 10 lbs.
He is on thyroid meds but still a bit skinny. He will be 18 in the next month.
Garfield sends his best to Billy or at least I am sure he would.
Hugs

Hi Dru; It's been a long time since I've visited here. I've had such a busy summer for the first time in years. It's been both good and bad but mostly good. I put up a post about it.
I was so sorry to read about your Billy Elliot and hope they find out what the problem is. I'll keep him in prayer. I love the photo of you and him. Hugs
