Default Phew! Ally "dodged a bullet"!

Some may recall Miss Ally had to have a toe amputated this May due to a sarcoma tumor. Well last Wednesday I found a small growth on the toe next to the missing one. You all can imagine the terror I felt, and I kinda broke down, thinking she'd end up with another toe gone, and only half a foot left.

Biopsy result from yesterday, as my vet suspected, scar tissue!! It had clumped up at the end of where the initial incision was. Well, it hadn't been there the first 4 months, so I leaped to a bad scenario. It did look funny though and he agreed it was necessary to biopsy.

Just feel like we (and she) dodged a bullet! So many pet illnesses this year for us, we really needed to catch a break. We about hugged her to death after we got the good news phone call!!!!

WAHOO Ally, WTG! So happy for you Sharon to learn it was just a scare, isn't it great how those good news calls can wipe out a headache and a case of jumpy nerves all at once. Hugs and kisses to your sweet furbaby.
