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 downhill...as 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 wrong....as 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!
