It wasn't cancer! A culture wasn't done, but the specimen showed a lot of inflammation. As mentioned, the vet had said he got it all.

So she will keep her leg! The wound is healing nicely and Sunday, with the vet's permission, I will remove the sutures. Today to Ureka's great pleasure, the Elizabethan collar came off. She had figured out how to eat with it in place, but never did like the thing. At one point she had a front leg inside the collar alongside her neck. Very awkward. I put the leg back outside the collar.

She has been in a cage by herself where I could monitor her eating, which has been enthusiastic. Apparently getting rid of some rotten teeth was a useful thing. I can tell she is regaining weight.

I still haven't figured out how that lesion erupted so quickly, and the right hind leg was especially worrisome.

But all is well that ends well!

Best wishes, Chris
