Well as strange as this may sound we still do not have a completed picture. The specialist called me about 30 minutes ago and the only thing she confirmed is that Abby has HCM. So it is heart disease. She said her lungs were clear (good thing), but she is still in the oxygen tent (bad thing). She was sending her to the ER again tonight with instructions to try to wean her off the oxygen. She also said that in the first set of X-rays she saw a "mass", she repeated the X-ray and didn't see it. So she is sending that out to be read by a radiologist. I either forgot to ask, or she told me and I forgot but I am uncertain when that information would be back to her. I was surprised at the word "mass" and didn't understand her until she said tumor. Because in our consolation today she mentioned cancer. But then this Vet practice specializes in oncology. So again we are in a holding pattern. If anyone has had an feline who was diagnosed with HCM and needed oxygen please email me. Right below my Header is my contact information. So the final thing was she told me she would call me in the morning and let me know how overnight went and that s where we are at.
Still waiting...and still praying.
Hug your kitties tight tonight and whisper to them you love them.
