In true 2020 fashion, this day did not go as planned. Our beautiful ole’ Margie (her 11th birthday is coming up this Thursday) went into our trusted vet for the removal of a benign lump we thought was causing her to limp. After some routine pre-surgical bloodwork and scans, bone cancer was discovered as the actual cause of the pain she’s been experiencing in the left front leg. We made the difficult choice to have the leg removed ASAP as the cancer was believed to be quite aggressive. She’s resting overnight at the vet and we’ll pick her up tomorrow. We’re sad and apprehensive but filled with so much hope at the same time; after all, she lost her leg, not her life. We’re going to jump into our new normal as soon as we get her back home with willingness to learn and grow as a family.
