Very Very Bad News....

Well, I got quite stronger while the beans were at work, but I've been wobbling. At first mom thought I was just weak, there was one other time a while back when I wobbled and we got all scared about it being in my nervous system and it went away. So when I started wobbling again the other day mom figured it was due to me bein so sleepy. But I'm not really hugely sleepy right now, and my wobbling is worse. So Mom called the vet, and it seems the chemo might have done a little for the cancer in my kidney and that's why I'm feeling better, but that it's probably in my nervous system. The chemo I got yesterday rarely helps with it when in the nervous system, and there are few drugs that DO help when it's in the nervous system. If we make it til Tuesday I will be getting a new drug called Cytosar. Mom doesn't know much about this drug yet. But the vet warned that there is a good chance my quality of life may deteriorate unacceptably in this next week, and that I may not make it for this treatment. And even if I do, the beans all have to decide if this is worthwhile. Once in the central nervous system, this is all a very endgame scenario anyway, and even with the Cytosar, my quality of life may not be very good at this point.
This is a very very sad day in this house. Mommy C is on her way now to spend some time with me while I'm still relatively OK.
I don't know if we'll have a funny picture friday this week, but if I leave soon, MomBean and DadBean expect they will probably get another cat or two, and they will probably host a similar contest. Or maybe the fevvers will borrow mom's blog for a while. Who knows. But MomBean loves all you cats and your beans, and all you NOMS out there too. And I love you all too. And so Mom and my spirit, whenever it comes to that, whether it be weeks or months from now, will continue blogging and holding my contest in one form or another at some point. And we also will still blog as much as we can with as much life as I still have left. We love you all. There are so many kind kitties and beans and NOMS out there. We are so leaky-eyed right now.
