So I woke up a few hours ago at 3AM due to a dream I had. Eugeney was at the doctors and he was saying "I'm afraid you have malignant skin cancer."

And I was wondering if that could possibly be it considering she had, and has always had, this black spot on her back. When I first got her it was a tiny black dot and over the months it's become larger and darker until it was approx. the size of an eraser head.

I can't find much on fish skin cancer but could that explain why her condition suddenly declined? Could it be that the cancer reached something vital causing her to die quickly?

I'll try to find some pictures of the spot. I've never gotten a back shot of her so I might have to sketch something to show how much it had grown.

Here are some of the better pics I can find of the black spot on her back. None of these are incredibly recent, the spot was larger than it was in these pictures. It was also the only thing that hadn't paled after her death.

Do you guys possibly think that cancer could be the reason why she had no other symptoms other than heavy breathing, lethargy, and loss of an appetite?
