The Infamous Gator

We live across from the lake in our neighborhood. Ever since we've lived here we have heard rumors about the gator in the lake. It's been over a year & there hasn't been a single sighting on this gator. Until today! It was just a small baby gator, maybe three feet long. So he wasn't much of a threat. Except for the fact that he has parents. Which I'm sure were somewhere close. I know we live in Florida and that gators are part of our environment, but it's not everyday you come this close to one. Aside from the infamous gator sighting we have been getting our share of rain over the past few weeks. And it's a good thing, because we really needed it.

Here's an update on Zoe. She has been walking outside on her own, I was carrying her before. She still stumbles once in awhile with her back feet, but otherwise has been doing great. Her tumors that were removed came back as mast cell grade 2. Not the best news, but not the worst either. The good news is that the doctor got "clean margins" when he removed the tumors. That means that the entire tumor was removed with no cancer cells left in that area. It doesn't guarantee that another cancerous tumor won't regrow there, but there's less of a chance.

Doesn't her incision look good!?
