This has to be one of the longest days of my life. I have been waiting all day to hear from the vet, to find out if Zelda's lymphoma is treatable. My stomach is in knots. I have a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, and I just want to get home and cry. (I'm at work now, so have to keep myself together.) I wish the lab would send the results back! What is taking so long? This is horrible. I just want to know, one way or the other. I think I'm going to be sick.

Not knowing is always terrible. Each minute seems like an eternity when you are waiting. I hope you have some news soon, then at least you will know for sure what you are dealing with. Until then just try to stay calm so you can make the best possible decisions for Zelda.

Thank you for your replies and prayers. I am back at work, with tears in my eyes. I still have no information. The vet called me last night and said the lab hadn't sent in the results. He knows how anxious I am and was sorry I had to wait another day. So, I should know today. I have a very bad feeling. Zelda is still struggling to eat, even though she has an appetite, and she is lethargic and losing weight. I'm going home at lunch every day (work is about 4 miles away) to hand feed her and just check in on her. I can't stand being away from her.

You're right, waiting is the hardest.  I've been there so many times especially while my Jasmine was alive.  It's pure torture as we just love them so much and want everything to be okay.  In my case it was many times before I had to say goodbye to my sweet Jasmine but I can recall like it was yesterday how hard waiting for information was each and every time she was ill.
I will keep you and your Zelda in my prayers.  I hope you get good news.  But, no matter what, remember you are among friends here and you are not alone.
