    Default JP has cancer

    JP has two mid grade sarcoma tumors in one of his front shoulders. The vet seems to think they will need to amputate to get them but we're going to see a surgery specialist on the 17th to see what they say. Good news is the Doc says these aren't prone to spread and if they can get them out JP will be done with it. He doesn't seem to be bothered about the prospect of being a tri-pod and says he'll be in the field come fall either way. A lot of you guys have known JP for 9 years now so I figured I share what's going on. Here's a pic of JP and Lady during their run today.

    Thanks guy's. We'll see how the consult goes thursday, they said to fast him that morning so they can do surgery if that's what we decide to do. Hopefully they can get the tumors one way or another.

    Well we didn't get great news from our consult. JP's cancer is in his scapula and humerus for sure and they aren't sure where else without a slew of more tests and scans by an oncologist at UC Davis. I haven't decided what we're going to do yet but in the meantime JP and are going to enjoy doing the things we love to do together like todays nice easy run and swim at the river.
