    DefaultUPDATE AT TOP-Inconclusive checkup today, waiting to hear from the vet later

    UPDATE: GOOD NEWS! All clear for now. Spleen is just working on filtering something (maybe a little GI bug) so it showed up a little more than usual today. Going back in a month to check the lymph node in the tummy. Phew. SO happy right now. Thanks for the power of JL--you all rock as usual. Licks from Fitzy.

    A lymph node in Fitzy's tummy is enlarged. He's had some soft poops the past few days (maybe because he's been chewing on baby toys...) so it might be from that but his spleen was also "brighter" on the ultrasound than it should be. Meaning it shows up more on the imaging than it should. The lymph node was too deep to aspirate but they did aspirate the spleen. The vet said it would take a few more hours for the results to come back so she sent us home and said she would telephone later. At that point, we'll decide what to do--hopefully we won't have to do anything. Ugh. I have such a tummy ache right now myself. Fitzy is sleeping soundly under the kitchen table (he had some light sedation so they could x-ray). Keep your fingers crossed that it's nothing. Maybe their ultrasound machine is broken...
