Lills update

DAMN!!! The C word is back :(

I knew it too. Why I don't just skip that step and go right to scheduling surgery is beyond me. She has two new spots they are pretty close together and again I caught them early so they can be removed with one incision rather than two. They will only have to sedate her and use a block rather then put her all the way under, which is good since she doesn't do well with anesthesia.

It really just breaks my heart but I am catching them early and she is a fighter. Her doc said she can still have a long normal life which is what I needed to hear.

I did ask him why she kept getting these mast cell tumors and he said that it was genetic, and that she just has a defective gene that causes them. It was like a light bulb went off... I told him we knew lots about defective genes and told him she might just get that one from me ;) Then I told him she is a fighter and she will indeed kick cancer's butt!

She turns 6 on Mon so I will prob schedule it after that, no one should have to have surgery around their bday.

Stupid defective genes! It's good she has a good mama like you to catch the cancer early. I hope her surgery goes good.
