I had a post all ready to go about a very humorous clicker training incident, but I have to set that aside, maybe save it for tomorrow. Because… Emmett is officially into his sixth CANCER FREE month!! We got the call from his oncologist that the biopsy of the tiny bump came back as benign (some type of cyst), though the pathology report indicated it was fully excised anyway. His lung x-ray still showed the little nodes we were worried about before, but they haven’t changed in shape or size indicating that it’s NOT cancer! NOT CANCER!!!!!!
New to the blog? Interested in reading the full saga?
First, we discovered the lump.
Then he had surgery.
We got the first cancerous result.
We thought we’d need to amputate.
We prepared ourselves, but at the appointment, we were hooked up with a specialist who could save his leg.
Emmett’s surgical results were wonderful, better than we could’ve hoped.
Then his 3-month follow-up results were fantastic!!!
And then we had his six-month check up, and he’s still cancer free! There really aren’t words to describe how happy and grateful I am. Truly, no words.
Now if you’ll excuse me… I need to go weep for joy then take a little nap. It has been one stressful, sleepless week around here.
