Today I had the opportunity to visit my good friend Heather. I've always thought of her as Marilyn Monroe; she's spunky, curvaceous and flirty with a heart of gold. A few months ago she had a growth removed from her rump and it came back larger than before in just a few weeks so it was removed again and biopsied. The bad news is that the lump was cancerous but we're cautiously hopeful because this type of cancer, a Schwannoma, tends to stay localized. The vet took wide margins when he removed it for the second time and Heather has an eight inch incision to prove it. Despite all that she's been through I still get demure little kisses when I visit and her dignity flies out the window when it is time to nap her in favorite sunbeam.
