Snoozing in the sun
eases up a tender joint
warm up for play time
We got the biopsy results back yesterday, with badgood news. The bad is that it’s cancer. The good is that it’s in the cartilage, which means it’s a much less aggressive form, with a low likelihood of spreading. She’ll lose the leg, but probably won’t need chemo, and there’s a decent chance she’ll have a few more good years (as opposed to the one-year prognosis had it been bone cancer). It’s like being given a reprieve.
She still seems to think she’s just fine; last night she was sprinting around like a lunatic, wrestling with the other pooch (to our consternation – one would think that having a lump the size of half a golf ball on the knee would slow her down a bit, or at least give a twinge. Her pain threshold has always been astounding).
Anyway, that’s where things stand.
Thanks, everyone, for your prayers.
