I had to go to the vet today because I have an area on my back that was inflamed and infected. I have the worse case of blackheads that run along my spine. Momma shaved all the hair off along this area so that the shampoo the vet gave me could help clear everything up but even with the terrible haircut it has not gotten any better. Now it is infected so I am once again back on antibiotics and momma now has some blue stuff she has to put on my back to try to clear up the blackheads.

While I was at the vet momma finally got the nerve to point out the large lump on my right front leg. The vet felt it and confirmed it is a tumor. She said that she could aspirate the lump and send it out for analysis but because of my failing liver it would really be pointless as they would not be able to do any type of surgery on it because I can not handle anesthesia. For now the humans are going to keep an eye on it.

Onto my liver problem – no improvement and none expected. The vet says to keep me comfortable and that is about all we can do now. I am still taking the SAMe tablets and since they don’t hurt me momma is going to continue giving me them.

You've got a BIG new guardian angel in Bukka when he went to the Bridge recently- maybe he'll be able to help...

Smooch,

Prof. Chester
