Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Pneumonia: extreme lethargy, I'm very worried.

Have they checked for Lymphoma? Xander is undergoing chemotherapy
and we have our ups and downs with it, but all in all he seems to be
doing well. When they found his mass they didn't think it was
lymphoma and no biopsy was showing lymphoma either. It might be
worth having the doctor test for it. Some of the signs you are
describing are what our little man went through. I hope it is not
lymphoma, and will keep you and Biff in our prayers!

All the Best,

Kim, and the ferret kids (Xander, Erin, Stewie, & Evie)
