Diego's appetite has been picking up in the last few days and he has also been staying up for longer periods of time and beginning to play though you can tell he tires quickly. Going to the litter box and relieving himself still obviously hurts him though I don't think as much but then again he is only 7 days out of surgery. His abdominal bruising has all gone away and it appears that the prepuse is beginning to go down as well.

Now the bad news. Doc called me this evening with the lab results from the growth that was removed. Turns out it was more than just a growth. It was actually an adenocarcinoma. These are apparently rapid growing malignant tumors. After the surgery doc was convinced there wasn't much to it and was sure he got it all. I have my hopes up. Given this type of tumor though the odds are against it. I can only hope that since he is only 19 months old that his age is on his side and that doc thought he got everything that this is the end of it and Diego lives a long happy life. Since it is what it is though I have to keep in mind we won't know for sure and that it could reappear at any time and any where in his body. For now its one day at a time.

During the call after today's surgery I asked it it could have been caused by any kind of foreign matter entering the prepuce or as a result of any trauma but he said there were not any signs of anything like that at all. Other than the inflammation due to irritation of this growth rubbing the prepuce when he would extend to urinate things appeared normal.
