Hi guys, we have some bad news and some good news.
It turns out the mass is Shushu's liver is cancer... but the doctor is pretty certain the cancer is this non-agressive, non-spreading, very treatable type of cancer. I spoke to the surgeon today and he says that if it really is what they think it is (never 100% sure until biopsied), he said once they remove it, Shushu will live his normal life span.
Of course, I have been crying since last night (the doctor was very sweet and called at 10 pm to let us know the results and the surgeon spent a whole 15 minutes with me on the phone answering my questions). He will probably have surgery on the 8th. He will be in the hospital for 2 to 3 days because they are removing a lobe of his liver plus his spleen. All I can think is that I need my little buddy with me for a while longer...
I will be gone for a while taking care of my friend. But I will keep you posted on his recuperation.
