Checking In

Hi everyone! Sorry for no project today.  I just wanted to check in today & let you know what is going on. I have been way behind on my bloggy fun because I have been busy packing orders and we’ve had a bit of an emergency over the weekend. I had grand plans of getting my blogging done for the week on Monday, but instead, I spent most of my day at the vet and taking care of Skyeler, our black and white Siberian Husky.

Johnny was petting Skyeler late Sunday night when he noticed a lump (kind of near her shoulder). It wasn’t just any lump, it happened to be a pretty BIG lump! If you know anything about Huskies, you know they have LOTS of fur. The lump wasn’t visible if we just looked at her, but it was easy to feel. I don’t know how we missed it before now. It was about 3X4 CM in size. Well so Monday I called the vet first thing in the morning, and they saw her that day.

Unfortunately the lump is not a fatty tumor, but something that may be more serious.  The vet has Skyeler on antibiotics this week, in hopes that it is just a bug bite or some sort of infection or reaction. The vet doesn’t really think that is the case, but we’re trying it just in case. If the lump gets smaller this week, then we will continue to monitor her. If it doesn’t get smaller or if it gets bigger this week, then next week, we will have it removed & sent to the lab to make sure it isn’t cancer.  So of course I am a mess and worried about her and freaking out.

And if that isn’t enough extra stuff, I have to go and get my Botox treatment for migraine prevention TOMORROW morning! EEK! I am going to be feeling yucky the rest of the week after my treatment so I am working late this evening getting the rest of the SP Orders out & getting my blog posts done for the rest of the week.

I just wanted to fill y’all in on what is going on. I have been much slower than usual answering emails so please bear with me this week! I appreciate your patience & well wishes.

  1. Having dealt with tumors with our pooches that have gone both ways and while not having Botox, I do have migraines regularly, I can empathize with your situation. You, your family and Skeyler will be in our thoughts and prayers. Good luck and take it easy.

  3. Oh poor Skyeler! I’m sure everything will be fine…it is bug season, hopefully it’s just a stinger that will work its way out 🙂 Best wishes to you in regards to your treatment tomorrow.
