First, I want to thank everyone for their kind words, and warm wishes after my last post. We appreciate them very much.
We had a follow-up vet visit today. He wanted to check her lymph glands. Since they were not enlarged yet, after consulting the cancer vet doctor it was decide to give Ginny steroids. Apparently they sometimes slow down this type of cancer for at least a while, which could give us some more good time with her. We will see how it goes. Just so you know she is still our feisty Ginny, she threw a tantrum all the way home. She dug the towel she was sitting on, and thumped.
Here she is glaring at me for interrupting her Critical Care Feast (ya gotta love that apple-banana flavor)!

The location and size of the lumps make it impossible to remove them. My vet took a tissue sample, and consulted with a vet/doctor cancer guy, who was surprised to find out that the rabbit the sample came from was still alive. Apparently this is a fast moving cancer, that is transmitted by virus in the wild rabbit population. We don't take our buns outside, but I do feed them our nice organic veggies from the garden. Maybe her exposure came from that, or from her hay, or maybe we tracked something into the house, I don't really understand how this happened. I'm hoping to find out more.

Soon after we picked these, the temperature hit 90°F. But a little while ago, we had some clouds roll in.
Can you see the neighbors ornamental grass blowing sideways? The rain was coming sideways in sheets, also.There was thunder, but not too close. There were waves in the swimming pool.
