Update on Miss Molly

Molly had her ultrasound.
The test almost all but confirms she has Pituitary Dependent Hyperadrenocorticism--i.e.Cushings Diease caused by a tiny tumor on her pituitary gland. Next week she gets the final text to confirm the diagnosis. Good news is this can be treated with medication. The meds are pricey, but her quality of life isn't really affected--she's not in pain, and there are not a whole lot of side effects to the medications.

I had a total breakdown thinking I might lose another dog, just 7 months after losing Maxie.
Dr. Soli reassured me that "we are not there."
Think good thoughts for Tiny Molly and her mom and siblings.

My love to Molly. Maybe I will have a Cushing's support group with her? Looking forward to Saturday!
