Our cat made it through the pre-screening process (means she doesn't have major heart problems or cancer), and was treated for hyperthyroid with radiation yesterday. She has to stay in isolation until Friday afternoon, and then must come home with restrictions about closeness because of her radioactivity. It's hard for her to live in a cage when she's used to a big house, so we're hoping for her safe stay in the isolation room until she can return.
She had tumors (benign) in both lobes of the thyroid. Unfortunately, this makes it more likely that she'll end up with insufficient healthy thyroid tissue and will have to take thyroxin for the rest of her life. The up side of this is it's one pill a day instead of three, and it's less unhealthy a base state to be in. We'll know more over the upcoming weeks and months.
