Without getting into too many details, Gertie was at the vet today for GI issues. A physical was done and x-rays taken.
The vet threw out the “C” word as a potential diagnoses and recommended an ultrasound.
Given Gertie’s age and physical condition, she is not a very good candidate for invasive abdominal surgery, the treatment if a tumor exists, be it benign or malignant.
This news leaves us with only one option:
Today Gertie got her promise that Run A Muck Ranch is her forever home.
Our mission is to keep Gertie happy and comfortable for as long as she’ll let us.
We are very blessed that the stars aligned to bring Gertie to us.
PS: There were some, shall we say, ‘things’ about Gertie discovered in today’s visit that have my mind spinning right now. I dared not voice my thoughts out loud to the vet lest I get the “eye roll”. Cross fingers that this ‘irrational’ hunch pans out and that Gertie will not only be better, but thrive. I may be wrong, but there’s always hope, right?
