We are home from a long day at the faraway vet hospital. Our very worst fears were not realized. The lump on K's leg is not a tumor. Rather, it's a reaction to the radiation treatment that she had in January. I cannot tell you how much a new bone tumor would have complicated the situation. I'm grateful that we dodged that crisis.
No doubt, our time together is getting short. At least K is not suffering. Instead, she's still reveling in every day that she's given. She's running, and loving, and jumping, and playing. I cannot express how grateful I am for her happiness. Looking at the photo below that I took yesterday, I think that you can understand why we are opting to try to extend this phase of her life.
