This week I had some drama with one of my dogs. I noticed Karma had a huge lump on her hind leg and took her to the vet's.

First, the vet thought it was hernia, and then when she did the ultrasound she said it’s probably bone cancer. When she took the x-rays, she said it was just a lump under her skin and they need to make a biopsy to see what it was. When she did the biopsy, it turned out it was just fat. The final results will come in on Wednesday but they still want to operate on her because the lump is really huge. And there I was thinking I’ll need to euthanize her or cut off her leg.

I don't think I mentioned it before because of all that was going on with my husband's death, but one of my cats, Bolha died on the morning of my husband's funeral. She was going to be 14 years old this year and she had kidney failure.

She stopped eating and I took her to the vet on Friday. They gave her an IV and did some tests that showed kidney failure. They couldn't take her in over the weekend, so I went for another IV with her on Saturday and on Monday I left her there so they could supervise her. In the evening the vet called to tell me she doesn't think the cat will make it through the night. And she didn't.
