Purrs need for Sanuk

We have just found another lump on Sanuk - this time on her shoulder where injections are given and my first fear was the dreaded sarcoma that sometimes results from injections being given over and over in the same place. The vet did an aspiration of the lump and the cells do not appear to be cancer so we'll wait a month. If the lump is not gone then, Sanuk will have to again go into surgery. At 16 and a 1/2 and having undergone two major surgeries in the last 6 months, I shudder to even think about her having to go through that again. But she seems to feel good - eats well, talks all the time, and she's gained a little weight since the surgery in the spring. Thank you so much for keeping Sanuk in your prayers. ~~ email received 8/19/2009

Sanuk, my 16 year old kitty cat has been through so much this past year (stomatosis, an immune system disorder that causes ulcerated gums and required the removal of all but her canine teeth), a raging infection which, thank goodness antibiotics finally cured. When she went in for a check up on monday, they found a small mass in her lower abdominal/breast area. The earliest they could schedule her for surgery was 7/1 (no other vet in this area could even see her until the first week of july). I just got a call from her vet that they've had a cancellation and can do the surgery this friday (6/19). Please pray for sanuk and her vet/surgeon. Thank you so much.
