The vet just called. He said that the preliminary report he got said that it was sarcoid like and most likely benign. I understand the benign part. But why would they say that it was sarcoid like? He's calling the lab to try to get a clear answer.
Oh, and he was supposed to come out this Thursday to take the stitches out. He had a death in the family though, and it's set for next Thursday now. I've been keeping her bedding as straw as opposed to shavings to try to keep the majority of dust down in her stall, and out of the stitches. She is doing really really well. There is no blood-like weeping anymore, and there is only a little clear weeping from one spot after I walk her. It's not puss-like, there's no swelling, and I'm still putting the powder on it after our walks. Do you guys think it would be ok to switch her back over to shavings this coming Thursday (when they were supposed to come out), or stick with the straw until they do come out just to be on the safe side? I have plenty of shavings, but only enough straw to last a few more days.
Thank you all for the prayers, thoughts, and well wishes. You've helped me keep a much needed, positive attitude through all of this!!!
Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!
