Sassy is going to the vet tomorrow to have a mass removed. It started out as a small nodule that didn't seem too worrisome about 7 weeks ago, and in the last week it has gotten quite large and is oozing and smelly. She is 14 years old so we are more than a bit nervous about all this. Hopefully it is nothing that can't be fixed by anything more than removal. She has gotten very clingy and needy in her old age and some days she makes me quite insane, but I'm still not ready to say goodbye. So please send the good vibes our way.
