Stevie Girl will need surgery ~~ Scheduled for Wed.2/23
Image by Trish Hamme
for a small tumour on her left front mammary gland .
Since the first week of Dec. , she has lost almost a pound ~~~~
Blood work results are due Monday , then surgery will be scheduled for Tues. or Wed. ~~~~
UPDATE Sat. 2/19 -Just recieved e-mail from Vet. , with Blood Test results:
"The accompanying blood test results point toward a problem with Stevie’s Liver. The elevated bilirubin (an indication of bile pigment accumulation in the blood called jaundice) is mild but unmistakable, and the liver enzyme elevations (AST, ALT, Alkaline Phosphatase) are mild, but taken as a whole with the bilirubin increase are strongly suggestive that a low grade liver ailment is present. The good news is that every other parameter is normal (including platelets evidenced by the "adequate" platelet estimate). A 12 mg/dL increase in cholesterol is not clinically significant from a health standpoint but adds circumstantial weight to the suspicion of a liver ailment.
There are many possible pathologies that could cause these blood enzyme changes, and the next most logical step diagnostically is to do an ultrasound screen of her liver (whole abdomen really). "
Doctor is not in office until 8am Mon. , so will set up Ultrasound then , and find out if surgery on the
"lump" in her mammary gland should be schelduled , or wait on ultrasound results ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I liked these scales that were on a small alley in Siena. Lots of people will be looking at these after the festive season (me included!).
