Too much sad this week.

Firstly let me say things are going well with the twins, but other things this week have not been so good.

My friend is still in hospital, and she is still losing a little fluid. She is in an awful place and each day for her right now is like living in a horrible nightmare that you can't wake up from. I remember it well from my own experience and I have done nothing but think about her all week. Hang in there sweetheart.

In other news we took our lovely old fat cat Mr Rash (Rasher) to the vet this morning again. Two weeks ago he had 2 teeth out but he's just not been the same since he came home.

He's been lethargic, depressed and very quiet, he's also not eating (not like him at all!) and losing interest in everything around him.

When he went in for his teeth op he weighed 5.3kg, a week later at the checkup he was 5.1kg - today he is 4.4kg so he has lost a lot of weight in just over a week.

The vet felt his tummy and much to our shock she found a large lump. She asked her colleague to take a look and they confirmed that there is a lump there that shouldn't be :(

So they are keeping him in overnight, putting him on a drip and taking more blood samples for tests, plus doing an x-ray to see if that gives them a better idea of what is going on.

If that doesn't help then he might need an operation, but as they don't yet know what or where this lump is we don't know the outcome - but she did say be prepared for the worst as it might not be operable and they might have to put him to sleep.

I'm absolutely devastated, Mr Rash is my big fat cuddly bear and the thought of losing him like this is tearing at my heart.

There is just too much sad this week.
