Chesty had a lump on his upper abdomen and I took him in yesterday to have it evaluated. They found suspicious cells when they did a needle aspiration so we were back this morning to have it removed and sent for pathology. It’s a large incision and he’s in pain even with meds.
At this point he can’t tolerate being picked up and moved. We used the blanket as a sling to move him into the crate and then Keith carried the crate in the house. We finally got him in and settled by the fire where it’s warm (but not too warm) and he’s sleeping right now. It’s going to be a bad week – I can just tell.
I don’t know what we’re going to do if the pathology report shows a malignancy.
