Default Melba does not have cancer

Hi the

My SIL has asked me to thank all of you for your thoughts, purrs, and
prayers for Melba. They got the test results back earlier than expected
and they were negative for cancer. She appears to have had a flare-up
of her IBS and is having some steriods for a while but seems to be
eating well now.

They were advised to wait until she is completely healed before bringing
a second cat into the house so my SIL's dad will take Sylvester when he
comes home today.

Might I ask why they removed her spleen, then? It is a very painful
operation and seems it was not needed. I'd be asking questions about that.

Great news! (Seems to be in short supply, lately,) I hope Melba gets
better ASAP!

What a relief it's not cancer! Glad that is all sorted out. Now you can
stop worrying about Star and Melba, and hopefully get a good night's
sleep soon.

I can't tell you what a relief that is! Last week, I was attending
the funeral of a friend who had died of pancreatic cancer. He was one
of the lucky ones, having a relatively healthy year or so after
diagnosis, but it's ultimately so deadly, I really hate to see anyone
getting it.
