On Monday, when we took our dog to the vet about her leg a few weeks ago they said it was an ACL tear in her knee. They were 100% about it, insisted not to even take x-rays. They wanted to do a $900 surgery, and a long-ass healing period. We discussed it, we all didn't even consider it especially because they say ACL tears can heal on their own. So we decided to let nature take it's course, but that didn't matter. About a month later the tumor popped up in between her shoulder blades, at the top of her spine. I really started getting suspicious, my mother and my brother didn't think very much of it, they just kinda figured it was a fatty tumor. My father however, wanted to get this checked out, as did I. He scheduled an appointment to a vet in his eyes, the best veterinarian ever. He's been to her multiple times before, our previous dog was put down she didn't even bill him. But I digress, when we're about to leave she's excited as hell. She actually jumped in the car disregarding her leg, I didn't even have to pick her up. We get there and she wanted to do a blood test first, she goes to the back to weigh her and she comes out and points out that her knee is more swelled than the other healthy one. Then she decided it was a better idea to do x-rays first. She does them, and when she was done she came back out and there was a huge problem. There is a tumor in her knee, she has bone cancer and her knee is literally crumbling. Her ACL is completely fine. She recommends us just to keep her comfortable for a couple months and well eventually we're gonna have to put her down. I'm extremely angered at the other veterinarian for insisting it was an ACL tear and wanted me to fork over 900 dollars. We can't do anything about it, obviously. Even if we caught it early we couldn't do anything about it.
Then today, I come home from the shittiest day at school, I've been sleep deprived all week I just wanted to be alone, my mom comes into my room and tells me that my uncle died. He had a heart attack in his sleep and didn't make it through. I can't type out all the details as I did with my dog because I don't know all of them.
I'm just so upset, confused, and tired. I just can't do 2013 anymore.
