Hope is still snoring like a chainsaw, and we need to learn why and how to stop it.
On March 11 Hope was under anesthesia and checked with a needle aspiration and a biopsy of her tonsils. The results were inconclusive.
My veterinarian said the pathologist doesn’t think it’s lymphoma but cannot fully rule it out.
I can tell Hope is a bit uncomfortable with her snoring.
We have some options: Have surgery to remove the tonsils and test that tissue. If it is lymphoma chemotherapy can buy her some time. Also while she is under we can have an ultra sound to check her organs to see if they are affected. My vet said she did not see any tumors or feel any enlarged nodes.
So, tomorrow morning we have an appointment with a specialty vet for a consultation about surgery and a consultation with an oncologist.
I have prayed Hope doesn’t have cancer. She suffered for five years in an Amish puppy mill, and I think she has suffered enough. At least Windy is back to normal.
