Lucky Does Not Have Hsa

Recommended Posts

The e-vet called with the biopsy results.

This is how it went

me: hello?

vet: how are you?

me: fine

vet: how's Lucky doing?

me: it is cancer?

vet: *laughs*

vet: it's not cancer

me: *screaming* WHAT??

vet: it's not cancer

me: *crying*

He said it's some fibro something or other. I was outside cleaning the yard when he called so I didn't have anything to write it down on. Plus I was crying so hard.

He explained it to me but again the crying got in the way.

He did say that with this whatever it's called, they give dogs 1 year but he said that is usually in 12+ year old dogs. Lucky is 6 so it should be longer than a year.

I asked what about his liver? He said it's fine, nothing on the biopsy.

I asked why his bilirubin was so high if there's nothing wrong with his liver. He said it's probably from the rimadyl which had been stopped after the first second day. He likes to use it right after surgery because it's injectable.


I do have a vet appt tonight to get his bilirubin checked. I am supposed to call the e-vet back tomorrow with results and we can talk about treatment.


I couldn't stop crying. I'm glad I was home when he called. I rushed inside to hug Lucky and kiss him. He just wagged his tail, happy with the attention.


Thank you for all the prayers. I just can't believe it's not HSA.


Kari and the pups.
