It's Been One of those Weeks!!

Schatzi spent most of the week in & out of the dreaded V.E.T. hospital! Firstly, she showed signs of severe lethargy; then things started to go her left eye started to swell & weep. On Tuesday she underwent prelimary blood & urine tests. Early indications led us to believe a serious health issue was looming....especially when a large lump appeared within 24 hours.

Today, x-rays & a biopsy was performed on that nasty lump...which proved to be a swollen lymph gland! An anti-inflammatory & pain meds have been administered & prescribed for the weekend & a re-check will be done on Monday.
Mama, Dad and our hooman sister were extremely relieved that the prelimiary tests proved cancer was being investigated. Early indicators showed perhaps this was a concern.

Thank dawg that is not the case & while Schatzi appreciated the hospitality at the 5 star V.E.T. accomodations, she is very happy to be home & snuggled tightly beside her Dad!

And Mama is thinking she has a few more gray hairs to cover!
