Just goes to show the power of global purrs and kind thoughts and prayers. A miracle has happened! My biopsy came back as inflammatory and not cancerous!!!! The steroid injection is working - I am starting to eat better and dribble less already. Yes, I have to go back for injections until the lesion shrinks but that's minor compared to what might have been. The vet was so sure that it was malignant and nearly didn't send away the biopsy to spare the expense for SS, but SS insisted. Are we glad that common sense prevailed. The $200 was well spent! The sun is shining, we are doing happy dances. Come for a party!!!! Many thanks to all my friends, old and new, for their purrs and purrayers. We sure appreciate them. You are the best!!!!
