TARA UP-DATE

Thank you for your messages.

We took Tara to the specialist yesterday and he did a biopsy. His initial findings, he tentatively said, were that he things the lump is a fatty tumour and not a malignant one. We will get the test results back on Tuesday.

If it is a fatty lump - we can operate and he thinks the operation should be successful although it may be interfering with a lot of blood vessels in the leg.

If it does prove to be malignant, then there is nothing we can do and we have to make some decisions.

He seemed hopeful though so we're sticking to that at the moment.

She's fine in herself, although a bit sore and swollen after yesterday, but she thanks you all for your good vibes.

Thanks for the info on Tara. Fingers crossed for you and her.

Lots of doggie treats I think (for Tara that is!):-)

Anna said...

yes I agree with anesha, doggie treats for tara, maybe some nice treats for you too. Glad you saw the specialist, better to think positive, and give Tara the best treatment available.

I will be hoping for the fatty lump scenario. Those are quite common, especially in dogs as they get older, so chances are that's what it is.

Thinking of you.

Sounds like good news, keeping my fingers crossed they can operate successfully and your Tara will soon be back to full fitness.
