Cobweb

Talked to the vet today, and she was quite encouraging. She's prescribing another medication which is a sort of chemotherapy. She says we should know within a week whether Cobweb is responding to it, and if she does she could still live quite a while (she wouldn't specify what "a while" is).

Apparently the diagnosis is tentatively lymphocarcoma, which is an intestinal cancer. It's causing her body to not absorb nutrients. The new drug -- Luceran -- might help with that. We're crossing our fingers.
