My sweet furbutt Lady is going in for surgery tomorrow. She is having a massive tumor removed from her back leg.
We noticed a small growth on her back leg a few weeks ago. She is our senior girl at 8 years young, and has started to grow a few lumps and bumps with her advancing years. The vets told us not to worry about them unless they continue to grow at a rapid rate. Well, her new growth continued to grow at a very very rapid rate. In less than a week it was the size of a ping pong ball, so I immediately got her a vet appointment. Just in the amount of time I called the vet and her actual appointment the growth grew a little bit bigger than a golf ball.
At the vets they decided to have the tumor removed as soon as possible, and will biopsy it after the removal.
Lady’s tumor has continued to grow, and ruptured last night, so of course I’m beyond nervous and ready for the removal and the results. The vet said not to worry about the tumor rupturing since her surgery is tomorrow. I would share a picture of her tumor, but it is something out of a horror movie, and I don’t want to make anyone sick.
Right now I’m keeping Lady with me at all times, so I can keep an eye on her and her tumor. So, she is the mascot at the gym today! I’ve got her doggie bed and water bowl all set up. I’m pretty sure Lady thinks that the people using the treadmills have lost their minds, since she can’t keep her eyes off of them. You can just see her thinking, “Why run and not go anywhere?”, or I’m totally wrong and she is wanting to try the treadmill out herself.
Please keep my girl in your thoughts tomorrow when Lady goes in for her surgery. We are quite nervous and praying the biopsy comes back with no cancer. This girl has been the leader of our home for so many years, and we want her in charge for more to come.
