Some surprises are not wanted. Eva had a small growth on her hip and went for a biopsy just before the holiday. On Monday, Ali called to let me know the word from the vet was cancer. The vet was able to take her for surgery the next morning. They weren't sure if she could come home the same evening, but finally released her to me about 8pm. She was still sleepy from the meds, but I was glad to have her home. Now it was time to wait to see if the margins were good for the surgery and the tumor removal. Eva was not very happy to wear here e-collar but she had staples for about a 4" incision.
