A couple of months I was afraid that we would be saying good-bye to our Kinsey Marie who is 12 years young. While battling pancreatitis, an ultra sound was performed which showed an enlarged spleen. A week later a second ultra sound was performed showing some sort of growth on her spleen. I turned to a surgeon who recommended removal of the spleen. We did end up saying good-bye.. to her spleen and that awful growth that turned out to benign! She is acting younger and looking more lovely than ever!

Such wonderful news for a lovely girl, Sheila!

    That’s what I’m going through but ultrasound have now shown its on a node of her liver. Only 5 years old. I’m hopefully this will be Benign as well. So glad your girl is feeling so good.

    I am so glad to hear of the successful surgery for your precious Kinsey. She is beautiful and looks like a twin to my Bea. We sadly lost her at age 13 to a very large lipoma which kept her from walking easily. It was as large as a football. We of course took her to the vet way before it got that large. The vet took a biopsy and it was benign, but we could not stop the rapid growth of this large tumor.

    Oh Shelia, I am crying such happy tears for your Kinsey Marie and you. What an absolutely wonderful gift Kinsey’s surgeon handed you, giving you back your sweet baby. I am doing such a happy dance for you both and saying thank you God for giving the skills and the knowledge to the surgeon to make this happen for this most adorable little senior. Please give an extra hug and kiss from me.
