Just as I was driving to Dr. Blackburn's vet clinic this morning, I was thinking of a funny way to punk everyone about Hudson's lump on his rump. I intended to write, 'Well, it's bad news for Hudson. The vet informed us that he's really a French existentialist with a penchant for Clove cigarettes, berets, beatnik poetry, and menage-a-trois.
After aspirating the tumor and examining it under the microscope, Dr. 'B', as he's affectionately known, returned to the room and said, 'I'm 100% sure...' and I was about to do a 'Whew' until he continued...'It's a mast cell tumor'.
Hudson has cancer and is under the knife as I write, to remove it. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as there is a chance, ever so slight, that when the tumor is excised, the massive release of histamines from the agitated B cells can be fatal it seems though I'm still trying to process the unprocessable.
But what we do know is that we won't know until it's biopsied what exactly we're up against nor what the plan is for four or five days.
I will not be on FB or reachable here at the earliest until the results or back. Ginger will keep you updated probably here and the 2milliondogs fan page. However, my blog will chronicle every aspect of Hudson's cancer.
I have to go now and learn everything there is to know about mastocytoma.
I wondered why I've had nightmares recently about Highway 40.
I am inconsolable
