About a month ago my parents found a bump on the back of my right ear. They thought it was either a mole or one of those calcium things that I get because of prolonged steroid use (Prednisone). But this last weekend, they checked it again and the thing had doubled in size and felt like a cyst. So off to the vet I went Monday afternoon. She thought it looked a bit suspicious and took some fluid. There were some cancer indicators, but not a lot. However, given that I have had a rare skin cancer before and practically everything else on the planet, my vet and Dr. Podell said it had to go just to be sure. My mom was nervous because using anesthesia is extra risky with PDE.
So Tuesday morning rolls around, and you won't believe what torture I endured. No breakfast! I think, have my peeps finally lost it?!? But I go back to bed anyway...starving. Then mom wakes me up and takes me for a ride to the vet. And although my mom says that Mascoutah Animal Hospital is great and that they took such excellent care of me, the next thing I know, I wake up and look like this!
|Is this a joke? If so, it's not funny!|
|2 stitches, but they don't hurt.|
|You can't make me sleep!|
|Give me the food woman!|
|What? Do I have something on my face?|
|Oh, come on!|
|This is ridiculous!|
We won't have the results of the histopath for another week or so, but I will be sure to let you all know when we hear something. Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers.
