Busy week and an update

So, as the title states, it's been a busy week. Actually, to describe it more precisely, it's been stressful. We have two little ferrets: Thor, the handsome cream coated quirky male, and Lorelei, the sassy little girl who chews on anything that has a bit of rubberiness to it. Well, our little girl decided to swallow something a little bit bigger than her tummy could handle and it got stuck. We didn't see her her swallow it, but we knew she did something. Monday she was obviously ill. She was throwing up and not eating well. By Tuesday she was not pooping much and getting worse, so by evening we decided to give the blockage protocol a try. The blockage protocol for ferrets involves feeding them pumpkin then Vaseline hourly to try to move whatever is stuck along in their intestine track. Many people have success with it. We did not. By Wednesday morning she was dying and we needed to do something quick. We took her to the animal ER where they took x-rays and spotted the blockage. They put her on fluids, and she went into surgery by Wednesday night. She is now home and doing well, but it's definitely a scary experience for any pet owner. 

And now for my update. While Lorelei was recovering in the animal hospital, I went in to have my follow up PET scan. I would like to say that it was 100% clear, but unfortunately, I cannot. But it's not all bad news either. My body, for the most part, remains disease free, but there was another lymph node that was suspicious for containing cancer. This time it was located in my neck. Instead of going right in and biopsy it, we are going to wait 6 weeks and rescan to see if it possibly is just a reactive node from the radiation I recently had. This particular node is a little deeper and under the muscle bed, so I can't imagine going at it with a needle would be too comfortable. I guess we will have to hold our breaths for another 6 weeks.
