Update on C. - She was visited by a "child cancer doctor" (lol that's how he was described to me, so I'm just relaying the facts...) and he said that he isn't ruling OUT cancer, but he isn't immediately jumping to that conclusion like the first doctor did yesterday. They will have to wait for final results in three days for the official diagnosis. Anyway, this second dr. said that it appeared to him to be an infection in the bone or possibly a tumor, but he wasn't positive it looked cancerous to him based on the MRI. So we really don't know anything yet, but there is hope, it seems.
And as for the TOTALLY unrelated thing and I mean it's so on the opposite end of the emotional spectrum it probably shouldn't even BE in the same post as the above update, but hey, I'm anything but conventional...
Just in case your neutered dog has self-esteem issues....... Jeez, people will spend money on anything!
