Thank you Gloria.  It's been a bad day, that's all.

  I'm so sorry.  BooBoo's lucky to have you, but you must be so very awfully 
sad.. Hope the Transfer Factor makes it soon.

    Well just when you think it can't get any worse it does.  BooBoo's cytology 
came back today and he has FIP as well as feline leukemia.  There was no 
bacteria in it. There is nothing left for us to do for him.  There was no 
bacteria in the culture, just protein and fibres, because his blood vessels are 
leaky.  The vet says all we can do is make him comfortable and at this point it 
is all about quality of life.  He will continue to drain his lungs every week 
to 10 days and keep him on this antibiotic until it is finished and only Lasix 
once a day, which I guess does nothing for this lung fluid.  If he becomes 
worse, ie he has to have the fluid drained more frequently then we will have to 
do the obvious.  We will put on a good face for our dear boy and do everything 
we can to keep him with us as long as we can but it isn't looking too good at 
the moment.  The vet said they had another cat in this week that tested 
positive for FIP but not leukemia.  He said BooBoo has been hit with a double 
blow and unfortunately the end is near.  I don't know if the Factor stuff will 
make it here before Boo dies but I'm trying to be realistic here now and face 
the inevitable.  My husband and I are horribly sad about this but I'm getting 
angry now at these criminals who owned him and lied to me about his being 
healthy and vaccinated.  We have several top notch lawyers in our practice who 
like me a lot and would do me a favor if I asked.  I'm seriously considering 
consulting with one of them when this tragedy is over.
