It’s been a busy six months since Charlie had his surgery, so I wanted to come by and give an update! The bottom line is, Charlie is doing great! His pathology finally came back and I am happy to say that it was confirmed that he did have a chondrosarcoma and that the margins were clean. He should be able to live out his natural lifespan and it is very unlikely that the cancer will recur. Great news!!!
On the practical side, Charlie healed up beautifully and has adapted really well to missing his leg. He’s slimmed down a bit on the new diet the vet prescribed (1.5 cans of wet food and a quarter-cup of kibble every day) and is feisty and happy and his old self.
Here is a video of Charlie playing with his favorite Cat Dancer! you can see he’s doing really well!
