19. ANOTHER UPDATE: Bloodwork came back
The vet called me tonight with the results of Smoke's senior screen. All his bloodwork is normal, including his thyroid (he's on one pill a day to regulate it). That's good news, but it most likely means that his problem is a cancerous tumor in his chest. So I will just be monitoring him closely, and if he starts to collect fluid in his chest again, the vet will put him on diuretics. It's just a wait and see thing now, to see how much time Smoke has left. I just want to make sure the rest of his days are happy and comfortable ones.
