Such sadness. I discovered a new tumor on Lakshmi, emerging from under her left eye. I am pretty sure it is a metastasized tumor from her sinus or from the inflamed gums. It was not there a few days ago, nor when I took her to the vet last week, nor when she went to her oncologist in late April. This is a sign of a very aggressive tumor. I had two cats that died from cancers in their sinuses. Very little can be done but palliative surgery and radiation. She appears weaker too. I first noticed a change about 6-7 days ago. She did not want to spend as much time on my stomach, but lay more at my feet. I am waiting to hear from her oncologist to set up an appointment.
Lakshmi had been doing well. She gained more than 10% of her weight back after the feeding tube had been put in, and all her hair grew back, thick and black.
