Under the Knife

One trail up the mountain's west side
My most faithful hiking companion couldn't accompany me on this morning' trek because she was at the Arroyo Veterinary Clinic being prepped for surgery to remove several growths from her mouth, one located on her tongue.  I got a call at 10:52 from the clinic while I was shopping at Albertsons saying that Becca was out of surgery and waking up nicely, and that we could pick her up between 4:30 and 5:00.  The growths will be sent in for analysis, so we'll have more anxious moments waiting for the results.  I'll have to ask when we pick the Beckster up whether she'll be okay to do a short hike tomorrow.  I'm so used to trekking with my intrepid companion that it seems lonely hiking in the desert by myself; and I ran into nobody out there this morning.
