GoFundMe Link to Help Laney
June 25 Update…..Lane had a vet visit today. We scheduled her xrays for Thursday. When they look at the Xrays they are going to try and get a sample of the thing on her jaw and if theres something they see that can be removed by them then they will just go ahead and do it. But the vet seems to think the jaw knot is whats causing her problems. The knot has gone down thanks to the meds and seems more soft than hard now. I think its all just baffling.
But Lane is hating the visits as shes poked and prodded each time. This one seemed a little harder on her. So she has slept the afternoon away, im ok with that tho..
Update…..Lane is getting stronger every day, she has gained back the weight she lost after her bad reaction to pain meds…. So fingers crossed she will be good to go for her new xrays. They are doing dental xrays and then xraying her head….
Please keep her in your prayers..
I have been quiet again. Its been a bit stressful in the home lately. My kitty Laney has been dealing with some medical issues for awhile now and she has been my priority.
I took her in for what I thought was the sniffles, but is turning out to be something entirely different, which has become a mystery.
So she went into the clinic, vet did a quick listen, gave her a shot and then sent her home. Shot made her sound better for a bit but then came back. Back to vet, she got 2 shots this time, an antibiotic and basically a steroid shot for her sinus as they sound terrible when she has a flare up. Everything was good but along with the sinus issue she had a knot on the lower part of her jaw. It bothered her and she didnt like being touched there.
3rd time into the vet their like lets do an xray of her head. They took some and from their point of view it looked like she had a Mass in her sinus cavity and a possible mass in her middle ear and you could clearly see the knot on her jaw which could be a possible bone Lysis. Or could be a nerve issue Big words get thrown around.
They gave her more shots and recommended I go to a clinic that was better able to do dental xrays. So off we go for visit 4 for a lookover and consult. By this time Lanes sinus is flaring up and shes back to picking at her food cause she cant smell it. If Lane cant smell what shes eating you can forget it.
New Vet looked her over, gave some ideas ranging from Pollups to Cancer to maybe a dental issue. One thing they dont know is if everything is connected or the knot and mass are seperate issues.
They gave her some more shots which one was a shot for pain which was way to strong and she had a bad time of it for a while. All she did was lay around, wouldnt eat or drink and if she did walk would practically fall over. Thankfully its out of her system and she is bouncing back. Its just slow go.
New vet wants better Xrays of her head and dental xrays of that side of her face. But its on hold til she recovers more from her reaction to the pain med. We both agreed that it probably wouldnt go well if we put her under anesthesia. So we are going to let her recover more.
Shes a fighter and hasnt gotten worse since shes been on antibiotics but it hasnt cleared up all the way either. The knot has gone down alot and her sinus is helped by the Depro which helps with her breathing.
But the cost is going to go way up, Esp if they go in and remove a possible Mass, which then she will probably have to be referred to another clinic which are even more Expensive.
So a GoFundMe Page has been set up for Lane where kind people can donate to help cover her medical cost. It wil have updates as we get them, updares 9n her c9ndition, vet trips etc. I have included the link below.
So spread the word, help if you can or want to. It will all be greatly appreciated. And some prayers and good thoughts are also very much appreciated.
