Wellwoof, that lil ol' bump has turned out to be a grade 2 mast cell tumor. Not sure what that means, but I can tell this news has made the folks feel a bit scared and sad.

The good news is they think they got it all out durin' my surgery. The pathologist guy said the edges look clean all the way around.

I feel great and my leg where they took my bump is healin' up nicely.

When I get my stitches out, next week sumptime, the folks is gunna talk with the vet about checkin' to make sure the bump did not spread sum bad bump stuff elsewhere. Paws crossed.

Oh Pepper, we were sure hoping that bump was nothing to be concerned about.
We are with the others. We are still sending the PoP that everything will turn out just fine.

Pepper, I have NO idea how my Momma missed this (good help is SO hard to find these days) but please know that me and Momma are praying as hard as we can. That POP sure has worked miracles before, we've seen it, and we know it will work again this time!
