She's Okay!

The vet just called us back with the biopsy results -- they're negative!

Whatever Scout has going on, it's not cancer; the vet theorized that her swollen lymph nodes might be a result of her bladder infection, or might be swollen due to pressure from neighboring and also-swollen salivary glands (not a conjecture that's come up before, but it seems that those can swell up thanks to local irritation or infection).

So now we just follow out the course of antibiotics she's been prescribed, and come back in 10-14 days for a recheck (or immediately, if her weight seems to be dropping again).

Thanks to all of you who've let us know that you've been thinking of us and our Scouter. We're so glad that things have turned out for the better, and that all of our frantic imaginings turned out to be for naught.
