So, the little girl had her head lump removed today, almost 10 months since we first saw it. We are happy that it is gone, but sad for her needing to have surgery.
We don't know "for sure," because there is not much benefit to the knowledge of getting the lump tested, but the vet thinks that there is a reasonable chance that it was cancerous. So, it's good that we got it removed.
We just need to keep watching her health to see if there are more changes (she's really healthy in general!), but this certainly raises our anxiety about our sweet little pup. :(. Sad face.
