Tumor

I took Barrett to the vet this morning. The good news is that his stitches are out, the e-collar is off, and the lump on his leg was benign. The bad news is that the other lump was malignant. It was a stage 2 mass, which is what 80% of these are classified as. Unfortunately, there's a huge range in there for severity. A good sign is that the site is healing great-if the tumor was really bad it would heal with difficulty. So...there's really nothing to do. The tumor is out. I just have to check him regularly to see if more develop.

Poor Barrett. Fingers crossed for no recurrence.

I'll keep sending good thoughts Barrett's way.
