Thought I’d give a bit of an update- I tend not to talk about my personal life too much on here ‘cuz PONES ALL THE TIME!!11 buuut cats are relevant to the internet?
Spock (my cat) was diagnosed with iris melanoma today. This is a tumor of the pigment cells of the iris- while it can spread, most cases are clinically benign (meaning they stay put in the eye). He has yet to have the tests that will make sure it hasn’t spread anywhere else, but I’m hopeful that it’s just in his right eye.
He’s going to have laser surgery to kill the tumor cells and hopefully that will be the end of it! Though maybe later in life they’ll have to take his eye out. …But with the laser surgery, it’ll at the very least buy him a couple years of two pain-free working eyeballs!
The surgery is expensive (as are all the other things that go with it- appointments and x-rays and medication and all that) so I’m going to put together a gofundme or something similar soon, if anyone wants to help out.
Just wanted to keep you guys in the loop!
Also it’s super weird that this happened on the same day Spock’s namesake died. D: wow.
