... and my other lovely blog readers
Sadly, Smudge isn't at all well and the vet thinks he probably has a tumour behind his eye. Just trying to deal with all the implications of this at the moment.
Update: thanks to everyone for your kind messages. Today, the patient is sunning himself in the conservatory as though he hasn't got a care in the world. Unfortunately, when we saw the vet on Friday the prognosis wasn't good. If it is an aggressive tumour then there isn't very much that can be done. Meanwhile, we're giving an anti-inflammatory drug a try just to see if it offers any relief and we're due to go back to the vet next Friday. All positive thoughts are much appreciated.
