I am not sure I could get along without you here. Thank you.

Regarding time of what we know: if the CT scan shows inoperable disseminated disease, I guess we stop there (not likely as far as I'm concerned). The surgeon said she would look at the scan before doing the biopsy, but depend upon a radiologist and pathologist for definitive results. Maybe it's not so bad. So only for the worst or the best will we know much tomorrow. Real results will probably take until Monday or Tuesday.

Tiny nice story: we were walking back from our local woods and saw a young girl carrying books who moved across the street. Then she tentatively approached us asking directions. Upon request, Mars sat. I told the girl the short way through the woods and the longer way on the street. After giving Mars a treat she asked me if she could take him with her. For me, without competing in obedience or dog sports, this is the best I can hope for, that a stranger finds Mars not frightening but protective.

With your good wishes, we'll be fine.

Mars and Mary Jane

Pretty scary but we'll see. The mass is very large and can't be removed with clean margins, even with amputation, because of its location. The only sign of spread the surgeon saw was an irregularity in a rib-all of that will be clear with the radiologist's report next week. Nearly all of the mass is a core of clotted blood but the surgeon said this was not uncommon and is not diagnostic of a particular kind of tumor.

We should get the exam results next week and we have an appointment with the oncologist next Thursday. Right now I just want to see my dog.

please stay tuned,

Mars and Mary Jane
