So things are definitely on an upswiing since I last updated with personal information. Guin came into town for Labour Day Weekend to see Mr. Chewie Biteums and make sure I was holding up okay mentally since work became totally insane at around the same time I was already stressed out from his dour cancer outlook. It was great to see her and I can’t wait until she here on a permanent basis. I miss her constantly.
On September 9th, Mr. Biteums’ histopath game back and there was still cancer in the sample taken but only in the center which means, in a medical miracle of miracles, the two surgeries removed all the cancer from him! I was so ecstatic and it’s still hard to believe that in the path month we’ve gone from removing scar tissue from Chewie to being told it was Spindle Cell Sarcome which no life form gets better from to being told he’s cancer free. My heart and head have been on an emotional roller coaster and combined with January’s misdiagnosis of a heart tumor in him that turned out to be bad blood work, I don’t think i can take any more stress of that magnitude.
Chewie does have a lump on his shoulder right where the cancer was so I’ve been freaking out about that. However, when we brought him in for his final evaluation today, she pointed out this lump is actually one of three incision points. I knew about the other two, but I didn’t know that this third one was basically where she jury-rigged all of his skin to stay togetherafter she removed a mass of it that was the size of my hand. That’s a lot of skin on a bunny and she basically stretched what little was left and held it together at that point. She then proceeded to pull a suture that was incredibly long out of the lump and tonight it’s about half the size it was. She said to still watch it just in case like I would any other lump on him, and trust me, this thing is getting multiple checks a day, which is overkill and he HATES it, but he beat cancer and god knows I’m not going to let it come back.
Other than that, it’s just work and life as regularly. My Dad comes into town Thursday to stay with me for a week and I have Let’s Dish on Weds, but otherwise it’s writing, video games and life as usual.
