When she called me with the results she said that two of the three

were elevated and that we now need to schedule an ultra sound
appointment to
find out which is the affected gland. Once that is determined
then Cleo will
have it surgically removed or go through the injection treatment.
We want to
have it removed so that it is a one time deal and she won't have
to get
frequent injections. Is this how it usually works?

Well, I agree with surgery, but honestly, I would not bother with
the ultrasound unless you also want to have her heart checked.
You're planning surgery anyway - your vet will be able to determine
the affected gland (or glands) at that time. I'd put the money into
the surgery, rather than the ultrasound.
