    Vet person called. Good news: The histopath results came back and they removed healthy tissue as well. So, basically, it was a COMPLETE removal.
    The news I don't know if it's good or bad is: The tumor is a stage 2. From what I researched, I'm unsure of whether or not it's a high grade stage 2 or a low grade stage 2, they didn't tell me because they probably don't know. When we bring her in to have her stitches removed, they're going to show us how to feel her lymph nodes and give us a copy of the report. She said there is no reason to be alarmed as of right now. I mean, they DID remove healthy tissue, so it was a complete removal.

    oh, Ella's mass was a 2 cm mass. 3 cm, she told me, is where their survival rates are considerably lowered.
