I wanted to write a post about all the fun that I had with my wonderful and sweet puppy today. But, it wasn't to be. She is still wonderful and sweet, and I captured some gorgeous photos of her during a very fun morning hike. Then, my day went crazy, and I didn't even have time to upload them.
R is sick.
It started with lack of appetite. Then, bloodwork started showing oddities. Then a board-certified pathologist looked at the bloodwork and said that R should see an oncologist (leukemia, lymphoma, and hemangiosarcoma were all mentioned - but it was also mentioned that he could have an odd infection that's throwing off his whole body). Unfortunately, tomorrow is the Friday before a holiday weekend so there are no oncology appointments available (deja vu). So, R will have an ultrasound tomorrow and our vets will interpret it as best they can without the input of an oncologist.
Our vet kept saying that there was a decent chance that it's not cancer (after all, he's only 4 years old) - but we need to find out. It could an unusual infection or something that we'll never figure out. We are keeping up our hopes up.
