The Saga of Jeté: Chapter 7

I was hoping to not post about Jeté again until next week. But we've just had news.

Her cancer has spread. She has another tumor under her shoulder blade and masses in her lungs. Since she hasn't responded to any treatments, surgery isn't really an option now. So there's nothing more we can do.

You should have heard me when I found she had lung cancer. I was like, she doesn't smoke! The oncologist was not amused.  I was like, I need to make jokes, woman!

Anyway.

Now I just try to make sure she's a happy kitty, keep her as pain-free as possible, and watch for  any trouble breathing. The lump on her back could also become exposed and get infected so I have to watch for that.

I do still need to raise another $1000 to pay for her CT, which I'm so glad I got because I now know about the other masses. I never would have suspected her lungs.

I will, of course, keep everyone abreast of her health. She's very cranky right now, but not in any pain.

Thanks for all the support. You guys have been wonderful. 

yes?

I am so sorry. I know that you love you cat very much; not many people would be willing to do as much as you have for her. Give Jete a little pet of encouragement for me.

This is really REALLY sad news and it makes me sad inside for you. Being a fellow fur-mama I can feel your pain. Please know people are thinking of you and Jete. Hugs!

I just started reading your blog and frankly, I am heartbroken. I was hoping for good news being a cat lover as well.

Lots of good vibes coming your way, for the both of you.

I know there's nothing that I can say that will make this final time any easier. Just know that those who love their furry babies like their own kids, COMPLETELY empathize with you!

So, so sorry, Andy!

So very sorry to hear that. Nothing anyone says will make it better but my thoughts are with you. Hugs.

I am so very sorry. I'm glad you got the CT so you know, at least. Just remember, most people would not even try chemo for their cat. You are amazing to Jete and I am sure she knows it. You will be in my thoughts.
