I keep telling myself that when things finally fall into a routine then I will do more blog hops.
This Friday, 9/14, Lady Shasta is scheduled to
have a lump removed from her tummy-
For several months it was just there - no changes.
I was doing a watch & wait since she was eating really good &
her behavior didn't change.
In the past few days the lump has changed - bigger but
nothing else about her has changed.
There is a small part of me that
wants to send it off for pathology however
it won't change my treatment plans for her even tho
her vet is pretty sure it is a Mast Cell Tumor.
Lady Shasta will be 12 years old in less than a month and
I'm just going to bring her home to enjoy her life
the only way she has known for years.
I have very vivid bad memories of forcing meds down
Angel Shiloh after he stopped eating most everything I tried-
I didn't know a dog that was so sick and so thin could
struggle so hard.
I won't do that to Lady Shasta - she doesn't deserve that.
Please send prayers and POTP for my Lady.
