When I came home from practice this morning, there was a message on my voicemail. It was the veterinarian, letting me know that Princess Fur's biopsy results came in.
The mass in her mouth was benign. Let me say that again: BENIGN!
In fact, there was no sign of cancer at all. The mass was formed from an gingival infection.
Fur officially has a clean bill of health!
She's feeling much better and her mouth is healing quickly. Yesterday, she ran around the park like a puppy. Today, she started playing with her toys. She still sleeps a lot, but that's to be expected in an older dog.
I'm under no illusions - I know that even in the best of health, my dog has five years left at most. But this 'scare' has given me a new appreciation for the unconditional love she gives me and her importance in my life.
I'm full of gratitude.
