13th Birthday

The day before Bessie’s 13th birthday i discovered a golf ball sized lump on her amputation site. We took Bessie in to get an aspirate of the lump. The results were sketchy so we went in for a biopsy. Bessie’s oncologist discovered that this lump was a sarcoma. This is the same type of cancer that she developed on her ankle almost 2 1/2 years ago. The oncologist and surgeon were both surprised at the location of the lump. It had also increased in size from a golf ball to the size of my fist in approximately 2 weeks. Bessie had a CT scan on Tuesday. She then had aspirates taken of her liver and spleen on Wednesday. The cancer was located only in the lump. We had surgery Thursday. We are happy to report early Friday morning that Bessie is home and feeling great!
