Dixie is fine, we went to the vet and she thought it was just an infection. She then scared me to death because she seemed concerned that when she took a sample it wasn't pussy. She assured me that there can be non-pus infections, evidenced by the liquid being part blood and part clearish-liquid. I of course assume this means mast cells again. Well luckily, she came back eventually to say NO MAST CELLS!!! Yippeeee! It only took going at the Bugg three times with a needle, she definitely didn't like that. Our vet described this type of infection to me, essentially it's a slower-forming inflammatory infection as opposed to a crazy fast infection of pus. I'm sure it was a bug bite again that just slowly got infected and inflamed. She is on two meds for a while! The boyfriend left today for Florida though, so we spent last night hanging out and I didn't update anyone. I'll have more information tonight, as well as probably news about the impending multi-hostage situation this time. I wouldn't put it past Sophie.
Oh and send out your healing vibes that the medicines work and Bugg's bump goes down!
