All Our Children Meow and Woof: Biopsy

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

My fabulous doctor called human mom and I am recovering nicely from the biopsy. Because they are cutting some bone out (whimper), they gave me general anesthesia. By the way, my pre-anesthesia bloodwork was perfect (of course). Doc said he took a nice long sample and it's one of the best he's gotten in a long time. Yes, I am the ideal patient. The results should be in on June 26, Monday. If it returns as cancer (unfortunately, it's likely), I will be scheduled for surgery and in the hospital for three days. The very nice vet techs will help me learn to walk with three legs although I know mom would be good at it too!

Good news, I can receive chemotherapy at my local veterinarian's office! No long trips to Cleveland! Hurray!
