Agatha's lump

The verdict on Agatha's new lump (located at the top of the incision to remove the old lump--the hair is almost completely grown back now) is to wait. Check it every couple of days, bring her in if it grows noticeably bigger, and bring her back in 2-3 weeks in any case for another check.

She (the vet) says some animals just get these lumps with infections, and Agatha may be one of them. If so, we'll have to decide what to do about them--leave it, operate again and excise more tissue, or what. Of course, lumps can still turn out to be other we watch.
