Title: Lucky's follow up
Post by: Christina on August 05, 2014, 09:03:13 AM
Friday would be 6 weeks since we found the mass in Lucky's chest. I got home early Sunday morning and noticed he had a lot of gunky discharge from his eyes and his face looked really skinny. He didn't tell me about it when it was time to eat, and his cough had increased. So I decided to bring him in yesterday for his follow up xray and to get everything else checked.

It's not good news for my boy,  :bigcry: the mass has grown by 50%, he's technically gained weight, but it's fluid retention from the prednisone. He's losing muscle mass, which is why his face looks so skinny. His allergies have flared up, causing his eyes be inflamed, so my vet put him on some eye drops. We also increased the prednisone to once a day to help with his allergies and the cough.

He's not doing good, but my sweet boy is still there fighting  :bigcry: he started coughing up blood last week. I'm loving and cherishing  him everyday. I did get to take a canoe trip with him this past Saturday and he really enjoyed it.

Sorry to hear he isn't doing well, but glad he's still enjoying life.
