Good news about your boy. Note that if the progression has any
chance of being slowed, he'll need to be on more than lasix and
aspirin so I'll be very surprised if the cardiologist doesn't put
him on a heart medication.
Also note that you can't really tell if a cat is out of congestive
heart failure until the lasix is stopped completely. It doesn't
matter how fast the fluid has resolved on lasix. What matters is
whether fluid will develop again when the lasix is stopped. If your
boy has to stay on lasix to keep the fluid away, then he is in CHF.
Keep us posted.
