Sasha doesn't have a tumor

The new X-rays looked much better. It doesn't appear that there is a tumor or cancer anywhere. It is also good that I found out how blocked her intestines were getting, because that could've killed her too. She does still have the back issues, but that is much more manageable. She will have back problems for the rest of her life, but with weight-management and regular vet checks, she should be just fine.

Even though she had to fast for 24 hours and is on a stool softener (plus the usual pumpkin additive), she still has a lot of poop in her intestines. I don't know how that is even possible, but at least it's gone down from Tuesday (she lost a whole pound). She'll need to remain on the softeners for the next several days and go back for a final exam next Tuesday.

Hopefully she will pass the final check with flying colors (and no poop). I'll keep you posted either way. Thanks for all the well wishes.
