Thanks again everyone for all of your care and concern and sweet comments, it means so much to me!
WHEW! The Vet called yesterday afternoon and began by saying "I have some good news for you". Hurray hurrah!!! He said that it was a benign overgrowth of the epi-something or other.
And our Miss Precious Poochie Pie began to feel better yesterday and perk up and today she seems to have even more ooomph. So all is well in this little corner of the world again.
Thank you again so much for your kindness and friendship.
Let the holiday merry making begin!
