We Could Use Your Positive Thoughts ♥

Last Friday afternoon (May 18) Lucy was at my side, as she usually is and as I was stroking her freshly washed back, I felt a lump.
Fast forward to Monday (May 21) at noon. The vet thought it might be just a fatty lump, or impacted hair follicles and did a small incision to attempt to remove the infection he couldn't see.
On the outside there was no inflammation, seeping, anything like that. After opening her lump he decided it was better for her if he removed it and had it tested.
She came back home walking like a drunk lifting her paws and walking crossways, and with a drugged out tired look, but her tail was wagging so that was a great sign.
I would love your positive thoughts as I wait for the test results. My previous sweetie, my beagle and his illness came flooding in and I know they are not the same at all, but when we are faced with the vulnerabilities of both our pets and ourselves, it makes everything more tender, precious, brief, and sweet. ♥♥♥
EDITED TO ADD: Late on Thursday I got the good news that Lucy's lump was a benign tumor. I am thankful and relieved as you can imagine. THANK YOU for your kind words and positive vibes and wishes, it means a lot! If you were here, Lucy would thank you too, by giving you the pleasure of petting her. She's always happy to meet and greet with a little lick and a nuzzle.♥♥ ♥
