PotP and explanations

Thanks to everyone who has already sent us love from the POTP post. Here's what's going on.

Yesterday I had my regular checkup with my heart doc. We do an EKG every few months to make sure my medication is working like it should. That turned out pawfect, yay! BUT when we were doing all that, the dogtor noticed a big hard lump on the front of my throat. It wasn't there at my last checkup in August, and Momma snuggles me a lot so she would've noticed it if it had been there long! The dogtor thinks it's most likely a thyroid tumor.

The t-word scares Momma a LOT, but we're trying to stay chill until we know what's going on. They took some samples to test to see (1) if it's really thyroid and (2) if it's malignant or benign. After that, we'll decide what to do. The choices are complicated because of my age and heart condition, so we might just leave it. Even if it's benign, it could grow big enough to block my throat and make it hard to eat or breathe, so we might need to remove it either way. It's just a waiting game right now.

Momma and I want to thank everyone for all their support. It's an especially complicated time for this, since we're in the middle of having to move and change vets and everything! But we'll get through it like we do everything else -- together.


  1. Casey and Momma we are sending you tons of hugs and purrs and OMCs good luck with your move wishes too. Boy oh boy that is a lot going on. I understand you concerns about losing things etc. Years ago the little boy next door was moving and all he could say to my mom was
    I hope Santa Claus can find my new house. Mom told him not to worry if she saw Santa she'd give him the new address
