Update from AUDIN-

"it isn't a good one.
So he is still quite anemic.
originally he was both anemic and had too many lymphocytes in his blood.
The anemia is still here, but he lymphocyte level has decreased, presumably due to the steroid.
this is an indication of pretty heavy cancer.
Also the mass was removed was indeed cancerous.
So his overall lack of energy is due to cancer.
His skin issue...is due to a fungus.presumably ringworm.
which is really annoying.
but is probably a side-effect of the cancer, which is suppressing his immune system.
I can't afford to give him chemotherapy.
The phrase 'many thousands of dollars' was used.
But I can afford some anti-fungal medication. So they are going to call that into the ballard pharmacy.

But overall I don't think cheeseburger will be around very long.
so that sucks.
and i wish i wouldn't have taken the phone call...because i'd rather have waited to find out."

In related news, maybe I do not have shingles. Maybe I have ringworm.

Oh dear. I guess that is certainly possible. Are you going to the doc?

I have a physical next week so I will ask then. AUDIN thinks he has it too so I probably do too. At last jesse's callous indifference to CB has paid off. He is untouched. I guess I need to wash CB and audin's bedding (they pretty much share) but I hope steaming the master carpet can wait till AUDIN gets back a week from Friday? Also jesse should at least go get the medicine but no I am getting it. Jesse is not a very nice person. Good thing CB is too polite too pee on his stuff. I guess.

oh dammmit poor cheese burger!
no wonder he's been poorly.

getting the shingles properly diagnosed will help-
ringworm isn't seen as much nowadays
so its not something we deal with

hugs(((( you))))
