Heyyy. Guess whose biopsy came back all clear. It's Wednesday!
The vet said the lump on her leg was mucinosis, like the little bumps of excess hyaluronan she has on her nose, or, as the vet summarized at the end of her voicemail, "nothing more than her kind of normal strange shar pei skin" doing its thing.
According to the internet, issues with hyaluronan may be connected to hypothyroidism. On Wednesday's pre-surgery bloodwork, her thyroid levels were just below the normal range. The vet suggested getting a more detailed thyroid panel done, but we're going to wait a minute, because this month's health adventures have already blown a cold $750 breeze through the companion human's bank account, and then there's the referral to the dental specialist to talk about those two impacted premolars the vet found on the x-ray, quietly hanging out sideways in Wednesday's jaw right next to her canines possibly waiting to cause terrible horrible bone cysts, and the removal of which would be another brush with anesthesia and a surgery that could not possibly be in any way cheap, and the companion human's imagination is now limited to ending this sentence by repeating send help send help send help until it devolves into the grimace emoji even though this news is fucking great and we're really relieved that Wednesday's lump is a benign one. 🎉😬
Riley... Seriously no clue how this big hunk doesn’t have a home yet! He is around 2-3 years old and just wants to love his people. He is deaf, but you wouldn’t know it! He gets along with other dogs and dog-savvy cats. He does have a tendency to get a little nervous around kids, so a home with older children or none at all would be best.
Yesterday, with the heaviest of hearts we said goodbye to our best boy Marvin Marie. No words can explain how much we will miss you and all the shenanigans you were always getting into💕💕💕 #marvinmarie#bestboy#mrsnoresalot#blacklab
