Just spoil the hell out of her

That's what the vet told me when he called to tell me Zoe's biopsy results. The masses were cancerous--a bad kind. So even though he didn't see anything else in the abdomen region during surgery, most likely the cancer is spreading elsewhere and we just don't know where yet. So that sucks! But on a happy note, right now Zoe is doing great. She is perky and playful and seems much younger than she did before her surgery. So I'm happy we found the masses when we did and that we chose to do the surgery. I'm happy that Zoe will be pain free for at least a short while and that I am lucky enough to spoil the hell out of her before the cancer causes her to be in pain again. And as our vet also pointed out, there is a tiny chance that we got it all. A tiny chance isn't much, but I'll take it. Off to spoil my Zoe girl. Happy Friday, everyone!

I'm so sorry for your news. But you're right: you have this time to enjoy her and she has this time to be happy and pain-free. It is a great comfort to me that my beloved Molly was on vacation with her family, playing and wrestling in the snow with her boys, the day before she had her stroke and had to be euthanized.

I'm so sorry for Zoe, but happy to hear that she's doing better after the surgery. Have fun spoiling her and enjoy all the time you have. :)

I will keep her in my prayers and hope that the vet did get it all and hadn't spread yet.
Give her a huge hug and belly rub from me!
