I had to take Barrett to the vet this morning. I found a lump, well 2 lumps actually. I was hoping they were cysts...they weren't. We won't know if they're benign or malignant until they're tested. So, Barrett's scheduled for surgery Thursday. Since he's a senior citizen, they have to do a complete blood workup before, then remove the lumps, then send them for analysis. The price isn't pretty...and that's if everything's OK. I signed up for CareCredit. You can pay with their credit card and they have no interest payments for a year. So that'll help. Here's hoping everything works out for Barrett. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
