Multiple serious illnesses in my 14yr old cat

Hi everyone,

My cat Clarence is not in good health. He was FIV positive from the start so that usually makes any diagnosis/prognosis worse. Right now he has been suffering from kidney disease (CKD) and has been taking prednisolone for it- his bloodwork results showed elevated values for creatinine and Blood urea and he's lost a lot of weight. But the worst thing is his extremely low red blood cell count, which is like off the charts. He hasn't been openly losing blood, yet he's very anemic and he doesn't seem to be getting enough nutrition from his diet of only canned high quality food, and recently mostly renal diet  food. The doc says it could very well be LYMPHOMA or IBD that is making him have this condition, and because he's FIV + that there's not very much that cn be done for him going forward. Does anyone out there have any experience with this and maybe some tips that they can share with a very depressed cat-mom? thanka.
