Thumbs down My love bug Bella has cancer

We don't know what kind yet. The test results came back and my vet called me to say it's probably lymphoma but could be a form of leukemia. He's referred Bella to Oncology at UC Davis. They have a backlog of cases so an appointment may not happen for a couple weeks.

I haven't really processed it yet. She really seems so good--lively, happy and playful. Her appetite is good, etc. I'm hoping this means we caught it early.

Meanwhile her brother has come down with an awful ear infection. DD and I went to Vegas for small trip. While we were gone he got it. He's pretty unhappy, so he goes to the vet tomorrow. When it rains, it pours.

My poor sweet Bella. She's so young--only four years plus a few months. I hope she can beat this.

Diagnosis really knocks you for a loop, doesn't it?! You know life will never be the same. Best wishes for you and Bella.

Oh god, this is awful. Way too young for cancer. No wonder you are finding it hard to process. Hoping that this can be fixed. Sending good and positive thoughts.

I'm so sorry, what a difficult time this must be, hopefully like you said this was caught early and can be turned around. You are in my prayers.
