    Default good thoughts for Claude..Update 3

    Don't normally do this but here goes....

    Claude has not been right for several months, she has been sad, lethargic, tucked up, losing weight and has a lump on her chest and xrays have showed a possible spinal problem. Today I am taking her to the city to see a specialist and more than likley to have a CAT scan.
    So any spare good thoughts would be appreciated

    Update......
    Firstly thanks for all the good thoughts
    Well Claude had the CAT scan, it revealed everything looks fine except for the lump on her chest. The vet though there was possibly a grass seed that had become embedded in the bone and suggested exploratory surgery. As she has been so sad and in obvious pain recently, I could not say no. So she had surgery and the lump was found to contain dead tissue, inflamed tissue and something that looked like little stones. This has all been cleaned out of the bone and has been sent to pathology. Said he has never seen anything like it.
    Claude is doing ok, on lots of pain meds and the vet is going to spend the night with her and will call me again later tonight She will probably have to spend 2 nights there.
    Thank god for VISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Update 2........
    Claude is now home, very sad, sore and crying alot :'( About 1/2 the length of her sternum has been opened up. Have to wait 3-4 days for the pathology results and hopefully a diagnosis.
    Thanks again for thinking of Claude

    Update 3.......
    Claude had a pretty rough night, lots of crying and moaning but seems a bit brighter this am.
    She has a pain patch and is on Rimady but still hurting :-[ She ate all of her breakfast and as usual still pretended to be hungry and even managed a couple of tail wags, so that is a good sign

    My dad is coming to sit with her, for the day while I go to work.
