Elvis Has a Lump

Elvis has a lump in his neck the size of a large marble and I'm kind of freaking out. It's right next to his purrrrrr engine. He has the same amount of energy, but seems to be losing weight. He's not big to begin with, only 7-1/2 pounds or so, but he feels bonier when I pet him. He's going to be 12 years old in August.

Anyway, every time he sits on my lap and looks up at me, I cry. I know I'm overreacting because we haven't been to the vet yet, but I can't help but to imagine the worst and I don't know what I'll do if he's sick. He's my lil baby.

We go to the vet Tuesday at 11:30, so please keep him in your prayers. I'll let you know how it goes.
