Default Ugh - maybe bad news

Thanks MrsD and Kiwi,

We will take those healing thoughts. Just got a call from the vet saying the consulting radiologist spotted something on Ba-ba's x-ray that may or may not be cancer. She will have to get a nuclear scan of her thyroid to know if it is just an angry lymph node nearby or has thyroid cells growing in it.

Houston at 3 hours away is the only place that offers the test, the good thing being if she is clear they will go ahead and give the radio-iodine the next day. They scan all their iodine patients ahead of treatment so this is normal for them.

Aw geez, I would've liked to have been the only member of my family to have to go to Houston for specialty care. They do seem to know what they're doing down there though.

Shine Your Bright Light
