Yipee, we got the all clear!

Lily has had surgery, 4 lumps were removed and all diagnosed as cysts or benign skin/blood tumours called Hamartomas which rarely cause problems like cancers. Her vulva biopsy though showed a chronic thickening and inflammation within the folds so we have to wash and dry her and put nappy rash cream on. Talk about a child substitute!

We are so relieved, and she was so brave despite being bruised, scarred, stitched and poorly. We are proud of her. She seems to be getting over her 'man phobia' as well and is following any man that has a biccie in his hand!

I just found your blog and I love it. Glad Lily is ok. I have two rescued Whippets and have had this breed for over 30 years. I will be following your blog.
