Today, I am thankful for T's good health.
T, despite his age, remains a very healthy and active dog, demanding minimal veterinarian care. But, as he grows older, we take seriously any change to his physical state.
A few weeks ago, S and I noticed a small inflamed "bump" on his nose (looked like a new pimple). We couldn't discern its origin and decided to see if would heal on its own. Unfortunately, the bump did not recede.
So, this afternoon, S took T to the "veg" (our code name for "veterinarian" - a take-off on "vegetarian"). The veg said the bump is probably a small tumor, most likely benign.
S scheduled the surgery for Monday morning (we hope to climb on Friday and Saturday, giving T two more outings). I'm praying for a good result, that T will be back to normal in a few days.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
