It is amazing how much love we pour into our pets. I found it tragic when presented with the choice of whether to operate or simply put her to sleep. We really could not afford this type of expense right now. On the day I had decided that we should put her to sleep she seemed to totally rebound. She was perky and full of her usual sense of humor. Playing on the computer, talking (well - you know) and running up and down the stairs. I just thought that no one in their right mind would put a pet down that was acting like this. So off I went to the vet and I charged it. I had just met my goal of paying off my credit cards and I went and charged this surgery without even really being sure of what was ailing her. It was not cheap. But it is done and all we can do now is nurse her back to health and the doctor feels encouraged that because all of the spleen was removed and that other tissue samples did not show immediate signs of cancer that she should recover nicely. I hope so. After all of this I love her even more. Trouble is no trouble...she is expensive, but no trouble at all.
