The cytology report for Annie is in and there is a slight possibility the tumor might be a slow-growing cancer. The recommendation: remove the lump and have it tested.
What can I say? My worst fears are confirmed yet it's not as bad as it could be. The operative word here is possibility. Before Buddy had his tail amputated the cytology report confirmed his lump was cancerous. Buddy survived 4 or 5 years to succumb to renal failure.
We will definitely go forward with surgery as quickly as possible. Annie turns 10 years of age in January. With good diet, exercise and care our sweet little girl will have many more years of good living ahead of her and we will do our best to guarantee her the longest, best quality of life possible.
