No real news re: Cobweb

The vet called today, and the blood and urine tests did not reveal the cause of Cobweb's weight loss. Her kidney and liver levels were very slightly elevated and she seemed to be slightly dehydrated (probably because she was vomiting a lot a few days ago), but there was no obvious problem. So they're going to run another thyroid test (since the vet does think her symptoms -- weight loss combined with a good appetite -- might indicate a thyroid problem) and we'll know more on Monday.

Whatever's going on, it's not an acute problem, since the weight loss didn't happen overnight, so I'm not frantic with worry, but there's a sort of ache of worry in my chest.
