Today Marta and Steve took Coco to the Vet Clinic at Michigan State. (Please read yesterday's post if you didn't already.) Coco had some alarming symptoms on Saturday morning so Steve and Marta took her to the vet's office near their home. The vet did some preliminary blood tests which resulted in a possible diagnosis of cancer. Everyone was shocked! Coco is a five year old healthy, kind, intelligent dog. This was unbelievable! Their vet recommended the consultation at Michigan State. Initially today's report was sounding less than positive, but most tests were run. Finally late this afternoon Marta called me; Coco doesn't have cancer but she does have a much less serious but treatable illness. Great news! We are so happy and perhaps Marta is the happiest of all because she loves Coco like her own child.
