Monkey is Out of Lives

"These are all clean and ready to be put away."
So, Monkey has had hyperthyroidism for about a year and a half now. Outside of the weight loss, though, he's been the same cat (chasing the dogs, annoying my wife and her cat, etc).

However, this week he took a turn for the worse. The vet said that his blood work indicates that his thyroid is normal (which happens when a kitty is sick); but it's possible that he could have also been riding the cancer coaster up till now.

Whatever the prognosis, we're told that it would take a miracle for him to recover - but it's not impossible, just nearly impossible.

He's at the vet this weekend for critical care and we think he's close to meeting Jesus (or Satan, depending on who you ask). We'll know more when we go back on Monday to pick him up.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
