    I apologize for not updating sooner, but I took a bit of a break from the computer over the past few days to digest and think about the mast tumor thing (plus it's been kind of a crazy-busy week).

    Sally got her stitches out Friday--her foot did not do great. It looked good but when the vet started taking the stitches out the tissue was really inflamed. The vet said this was not surprising and she is still in the cone while her foot finishes healing. The pathologist said that although my vet only got 1 centimeter margins around the tumor and they prefer to get 2, there did not appear to be any diseased cells in or beyond the margins. They are doing x-rays friday to make sure it hasn't spread. Either way, DH and I are thinking we are at least going to do prednizone......

    She is still very annoyed by her cone and somehow (with the cone on) managed to rip a piece of her foot pad off......

    I am very glad to hear about the clean margins too! I read online that foot tumors are really hard to get BECAUSE you often don't have the room to get enough perimeter around them, so that is REALLY good news!

    *healing vibes* sent for Sally's foot............be good young lady and leave it alone! LOL
