Cali's cancer is back

I found a new lump by her shoulder blade area - very small, pea-sized. Here's her previous surgery and amputation story:


https://www.catforum.com/forum/38-he...amputated.html


She's having surgery on Monday, but the vet thinks it feels like it's already attached to muscle and may be even deeper. It's a very aggressive type of tumor, if it's the same as the last one. If it has reached bone, they can't amputate her only remaining front leg or shoulder. They'll remove as much as they can and send it off for a diagnosis. Of course, since I've moved 500 miles away, it's a new vet, which is always a bit uncertain. But everyone in the clinic fell in love with my little girl, even other clients in the waiting room.





I'm trying to hope for the best. My biggest concern is what would Charlee do without her, they've been inseparable since birth.


Here they are watching a scary movie with me, holding hands:



Trying to look innocent:

Well, I found a new, larger lump on her neck yesterday, most likely inoperable. I'll see what the surgeon has to say on Monday.

Thanks for the kind words, but the second tumor is the one that has me worried. It's probably already embedded in and around her neck. I'm still hoping for some good news, though.

I hope tomorrow brings you some good news. Keep us all posted. Hopefully with the second one they can remove maybe some of it for her if not all of it. I'll hope and pray thats the case for you both.
