Darbi Update

So far, so good I think.

She had:
-a spay
-one lumpectomy from her leg
-two lumpectomies from her mammary glands
-one complete mammary gland removal

What my wonderful vet thinks:
-two lumps from her mammary glands are no big deal.  That's his initial thought.
-one lump from her mammary gland probably cancer, but we most likely caught it early and that's over with.
-her leg is probably the biggest deal.  While the preliminary pathology reports showed inconclusive, he thinks there's a 50% chance that it is a Soft Tissue Sarcoma.  That's bad.

Now I just have to wait until next week to find out which of the lumps are cancer and if we got it all out.  If her leg lump IS a sarcoma and we didn't get it all out, then that's very bad news.

I'm hoping it's the OTHER 50% and it's not a sarcoma.

Fingers still crossed.

Momma D doing pretty well considering, however she does look a bit like Frankenstein right now with all the scars and sutures.
