The highs and lows

February 7th, 2008 at 05:11 pm

Yesterday I found out first that I was pregnant (yeah!!! - just 4 weeks along - too early to get really excited though), and about ten minutes later, the vet called to say that the lump removed from my cat was cancer. Talk about your roller coasters! Basically, there's nothing to do about the cat other than chemo, and I'm not taking that route (which isn't even that effective, per the vet). My cat is healthy right now, and she does not appear to be in any pain, and she just had a huge chunk of skin/lump removed, so it could even be months and months before it comes back (at least, that's what I'm telling myself). She's ten years old and we've had a good time together. So, I'm dwelling on the positive right now - a baby! Blood test yesterday confirmed it, but I'm due back in a week for more tests. My midwife is being very cautious because I lost my last pregnancy. Send some good wishes and healthy baby vibes my way Smile

    What, BA? Did I surpise you? Heehee.

    Jan - thanks. I'm really doing okay with the news about my kitty, somehow. Probably because I have such good news to occupy my thoughts!

    Okay, good baby vibes, good baby vibes!! Smile I'll tuck in a few prayers too, just for good measure! Congrats! Its hard not to get excited!

    You are right about kitty, enjoy the time you have and hope for the best! 10 years is a good amount of time to spend with a pet! I hope you get longer!

    Sorry jodi. Typical male ineptness at all things related to female biology I guess. Something like that. Big Grin

    Congrats!!! Good luck to you and your ever growing family. Are you hoping for a girl this time?

  11. jodi Says:

    Nope, either gender is fine with us. I would love a girl, but I do love my boys too (and I hear they're much easier as teens!)! Just wishing for a healthy baby Smile
    Thanks for the well wishes!
