Lucky's Mass Was A Fibrohistiocytic Nodule-Update 46


Recommended Posts

update post 46

====================

 

 

I got the path report when I got to work this morning. The mass was a fibrohistiocytic nodule, grade 2. Prognoisis: favorable.

So I googled it:
By definition, fibrohistiocytic nodules are not malignant cancers, but rather describe a spectrum of abnormal lymphoid cell growth (proliferation), either with or without fibrohistiocytic cells.

grade II nodules are called "benign fibrous histiocytoma"

and the best part:
If the diagnosis of grade II fibrohistiocytic nodule is confirmed, then further treatment is generally not necessary


This morning he ate a HUGE bowl of meat- ground turkey, tripe and lamb. It was the most he'd eaten at once in a week. :yay

He had more bloodwork done last night to recheck his liver values. Those results should be back today.

I'm still in shock that he's alive. Thank you again for all the prayers.

I celebrated with a glass of chocolate wine last night (sorry, I don't have a red wine glass :lol)

This year has been a roller coaster of emotions (my grandma died). I have to much to be thankful for. I'm so grateful that I have a job that allows me to rush out to tend to my dogs and co-workers who are animal lovers. I was thinking last night, if this had happened when I was laid off a few years ago, there's no way I could have afforded the $6k it cost to save Lucky. I would have still done everything but no idea how I would have paid for it. I'm so glad that I'm in a position now that money isn't an issue.
And most of all, I'm so thankful for my friends who have been here for me the last week. And everyone here on GT who prayed for him.

I know all about this being a **ty year, Kari. You and us both.

 

Anyways, I was so wanting him to come home a healthy boy! And I am so pleasantly surprised my wish was granted. Yeah, it's been that kinda year - you almost want to wish the opposite, so what you really want will come true. :-)

I am so happy to hear this news. I was thinking last night that I really wanted for you to get the same call I got last year after Aquitaine had her spleen removed. A year later I am so very grateful that we got this past year. I may still be paying for the surgery but she is so very worth it. Lucky is truly lucky!!! So happy for you.
