As we were out driving on an errand this morning, we got a call from our vet, and he said three words that none of us (him included) expected to hear him say:
It’s not cancer.
Whatever was bothering Jenna appears to been some sort of inflammatory disease or condition, but the biopsy came back clean. And since the biopsy was taken during the surgery, he feels completely confident that the sample he took was from the most abnormal looking section of the bowel.
We’re continuing to treat her for the inflammation and the thyroid, and she needs to put some weight back on, but whatever else she has, it’s not the lymphoma Dr. Ray was nearly certain she had.
(There’s other big news from today, but that’s another post…)
