A TOUGH ROAD AHEAD January 11, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — angewarren @ 7:35 pm

01-january-2008-187b.jpgMy world has been dealt a cruel blow today.  The vet called this afternoon with the results of the polyp they removed from Ebony’s bottom last week.  Unfortunately it is Cancer or a Mast Cell Tumor to be exact.  Now while it has been classified as a Stage 1 tumor that would normally be a walk in the park, poor Ebby has it in an awkward spot in the sense that it is not easily removed (or the remaining tissue isn’t).  We have an appointment with the specialist on Thursday who at this stage is fairly confident that he will be able to perform the surgery successfully.  our only obstacle will be whether or not he will able able to do the surgery without making her incontinent.

While I know there are some out there who would think “it’s just a dog”, Ebony is such a major part of our family and I am completely and utterly shattered.  I have spent the best part of the day in tears although since speaking to the vet again this afternoon and I am slowly feeling a little better.
