Subject: Tweezle's Fibrosarcoma
Sometimes good things do happen. A couple months ago Tweezle went in for
removal of a lump on his thigh. Larry took as much as he could, including
muscle, and went clear to the abdominal wall. We sent the tumor in and
the result is fibrosarcoma. Prognosis was poor and I had a terrible time
with the healing of the incision site (hence my question on laser
surgery). Well..... Tweezle is doing very well and at this time there is
no regrowth of the fibrosarcoma. Tweezle did loose some mobility in that
back leg but he's adjusted and other than walking lower to the ground on
that side he gets around just fine.
Fibrosarcomas are nasty and we know our time is limited but we'll make the
best of what time we have. Tweezle sure is.
