Roo Ben is back with me

I picked him up from the clinic this morning.  I am frustrated that we still have no diagnosis, and it doesn't appear that the vet clinic did anything for him.  Like the adopter's vet in Shreveport, Rescue's vet recommended referral to a neurologist.  I don't know if Rescue will do that.

Roo Ben is still wobbly and on two prednisone a day.  He has no pain, and is cheerful and otherwise healthy.

 Hey there to all my followers. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes. Keep them coming please.   Love ya.   RooBen

Well, Roo Ben's troubles continue.  He has a lesion on his side.  Popped up out of nowhere.  I watched it for a couple of days, and it got worse instead of better, so I took him to the clinic yesterday about noon.  I ws hoping he would not have to spend the night, but they work in their rescue patients and did not see him until too late in the day.  Dr. G called me and said it was either a histiocytoma or a mast cell tumor, pending cytology report.  Suggested surgery be scheduled for Wednesday to remove it. 

I didn't want Roo to spend all those days in a cage, so I drove over and picked him up this morning.  He is happy to be home, and has had a normal poop in the back yard, so maybe I won't spend tomorrow morning scrubbing diarrhea out of my carpets.
