Nim update

I had a long conversation with the vet tech today and got some answers about her surgery next Monday. (Now that I'm slightly more rational.) Nim does have a mast cell tumor which is a form of skin cancer.  They will remove it and some of the surrounding tissue to make sure they get it all. The biopsy will take 7 - 10 days.  Either the vet tech or the doctor will call with the results -- what stage the tumor was. (The doctor will be bad  news of course. So we can discuss the next steps.)
So between now and then I have to figure out Nims aftercare during the day. The worst case scenario is that she goes to the vets during the day. (Nim is not fond of the vets and I don't really want to put her through that if I can help it.) A slightly better scenario is having her day care take her and put her in a suite by herself. At least there she will be with people she knows well. The best case scenario is some combination of myself, my mom, Chris, and any other person I can wrangle into helping out by taking care of her at home during the day. (It really sucks that this is all happening while John is at home taking care of Fred & Kipper.)
Right now, I'm doing okay. Because it finally sunk in that Nim is strong and crazy girl who will fight this like crazy and so am I.

I also want to thank everyone for their well wishes, they've helped. Please keep us in your thoughts over the next few weeks.
