Clara had her spleen removed and a mass of tumers around the size of a tennis ball. Whilst we don't have the pathology back, the vet has advised us it is mostly like going to be malignant (cancerous) tumers. These tumers had ruptured and were bleeding into her abdomen which was give all the symptoms. Unfortunately this was not the first bleed, it was just a larger one, so enough to give symptoms. This means that there is a highly likely hood that Clara has cancer elsewhere in her body. Her outlook is not good.
She is recovering well from her operation and is sitting with me here on the couch. Once she recovered from the blood loss caused by the bleeding she should be back to her usual self. However long we have left with Clara is going to be very hard on us, but I plan on trying to make the time as special as possible for Clara.
If any of you who know Clara would like to come around and see her, you are most welcome too, just give me a ring.
