This is just a short, frustrated note to tell you that I was phoned by the Vet this morning, at 12 mid-day, to tell me that they have decided not to operate on Max today, but to refer him to a specialist. They explained that they have examined him from head to toe and have only found the one lump, but they are concerned about his excessive panting. They recommend further tests to be done prior to removing the tumour. We will most probably only be able to get an appointment with the specialist next week sometime.
I'm sorry I can't tell you more, but things seem to happen so slowly around here.
We would also like to say thank you - to you all - for the tidal wave of support and encouragement we are receiving from across the world. It's so incredibly humbling and quite overwhelming. Thank you so much.
