I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a copy of all of willie's test results to our conversation? I understand that you might not have a copy at home but his vet can give you one which you can scan into your computer and then give me the file link or you can photograph the pages and upload them by using the paperclip icon (if you can see that icon) or by using an external app such as dropbox.com/

Has fluid been obtained from his chest cavity and analyzed? If so, can you upload a copy of the fluid analysis report? Is there excess fluid in Wille's abdomen as well? Have X-rays or ultrasound been performed on either his chest or abdominal cavities?
