Subject: Lung removal in a ferret - Ferret 'X'

My friend with the ferret with a lung mass had her vet talk
to Dr. Charlie
Weiss. Here is part of what she wrote me today:

>>Today my vet spoke with Dr. Charles Weiss who has
>>apparently done lung
removal on a ferret. He told my >>vet that it's not much more
difficult than
a cat and >>that it can be curative so, after wrestling with
the >>fear and
shedding some tears, I've scheduled the surgery >>for Monday.
>>God I hope I'm doing the right thing for him.

I am posting this out here for others that might someday face
this, and after
the surgery I will let you know the outcome of ferret 'X'.
I also hope that those of you who believe in a higher power of
one sort or
another will say a prayer for this little one. He is a very
special guy.
