At this time, I am placing Monkey on a Medical Hold and will not be taking any further applications for him. He has a cyst on his leg that needs to be removed and we have surgery booked for Monday. He also had a thyroid screening done and the results were low/normal which means that he is fine but will require yearly screening to monitor it. What lead me to get his thyroid tested was a thinning of his hair and I wanted to ensure that it wasn't anything serious.

I have been speaking to a couple who are interested in Monkey but have let them know that we will have to wait until after he has surgery to book a time to do the home visit. In light of the new information with regard to his health, I am uncertain if they will still be interested in adopting him.

I am having a full blood panel done on Monday to ( hopefully ) provide a normal range for future reference and to also ensure that he doesn't have anything else going on that I should be aware of. I'm not overly concerned but it's best to err on the side of caution.
