They removed some of the fluid from his chest but couldn't get enough to do the x-ray. He is actually feeling more feisty today which made thoracocentesis more difficult. The fluid did not look good it had red blood cells and lots of some other cell the vet could not identify. She has sent it out for cytology but her gut feeling is that it is cancer. I am trying to remain positive but realistic. He came home with me for the night. He started antibiotics yesterday and he showed a little more interest in food today. We will see what the cytology report looks like tomorrow.
Thank you for all the kind word and the thoughts and prayers.
Rita Jean, I am sending healing thoughts your grandmother's way for her recovery.
