Holly's Journal

I have been awake for 38 hours. Our cat, deena, got sick last night around midnight. We took her to the emergency vet. They did some tests and said her liver is enlarged. She needed an ultrasound which had to be done at her regular vet. We got home around 3AM. I stayed up all night with her to make sure she was ok. Pat took her to the vet at 9:30 and left her there. I had a doctor's appointment today, which went well. Thenthe vet called. The ultrasound showed that she has terminal liver cancer. Pat was ok on the phone but as soon as she hung up she nearly collapsed, sobbing. I was holding her up, trying to comfort her.
When we went to get Deena we debated over having her put to sleep right then. We decided that it wasn't her time yet. So I will be staying home with her until she goes. I was supposed to start work at Subway tomorrow but I gave up the job. Deena is more important.
