Just one happy thing after another

                       
    It is hard to tell from the pictures but the entire woods are full of these purple flowers and the heavenly smell is heavy in the air.  Perfect for sitting outside and you can see them all over.  I love this time of the year with all the flower smells.

   I was getting ready for work yesterday and a friend of my son's came over.  Zoey acted like a nut barking and leaping around  until she saw who it was and somehow managed to give herself a large hematoma on one of her incisions.  I held pressure to keep it from getting bigger and called the vet but they didn't call back by the time I have to go to work, they called like 5 minutes after we left but it didn't get any bigger.  So now she has this chicken egg size lump under one of her incisions.  I sure hope it doesn't break open.  What a mess.  A hematoma is a blood filled lump by the way. 

   Had a good night at work last night until this morning when I my patient coded but they survived and the overtime is a good thing.  I slept well and am getting ready for the shower.

   Well the vet just called.  The lump on Zoey's leg was cancer and they think the one in her mouth was a cancer but they are double checking the results.  So I am sitting her in shock right now.  I never expected the one on her leg to be cancer, we all thought it was a skin tag.  The one in her mouth she only had about 3 weeks before it was removed so hopefully we caught it soon enough.  Oh man, I am trying not to cry here.  They think the type of cancer it was on her leg that surgery should be enough treatment, especially since her lab looked so good.  She has a small lump on her forehead he now is going to remove since we got these results when she goes for her suture removal.  I have to go. I am stunned and can't see to write.
