Bitty Update

Bitty had surgery today to remove the mast cell tumor on the back of her ear. I just got off the phone with the vet and Bitty came through the surgery great.

There is a concern that one of her ears (the one that had the mass) had goop and blood in the ear canal, though. That's from one of three things: excess scratching of that ear (possible since the tumor gave of histamines that made her ear extra itchy), not being 100% over her previous ear infection, or the tumor has metastasized. We'll find out about the infection by this afternoon and we'll know if the tumor was, in fact, a tumor in 5-7 days.

Fingers crossed for either an itchy ear or infection! She gets to come home this evening, though, so that's always good news. She'll also have to wear a little cone. Poor Bitty. She's going to be so cute.
