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.

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.

The prelim diagnosis can change. Stay positive! UC Davis is top notch and there is so much they can do. Bella is young and therefore strong also.

Push to get in as soon as you can. Call everyday checking for cancellations. My vet's prelim diagnosis of Chance's tumor was mast cell. She referred us to a specialist. Biopsy revealed a much less aggressive form of cancer. He had the surgery in September. So even though it was cancer, it turned out well.

I am saying prayers for Bella.
