Poor Macy. Took her in for her yearly exam and found that not only is the Ehrlichia still active, but she's got Lyme Disease as well. Two tick borne illnesses!

The vet aspirated it, and it was not good news - it was a mast cell tumor, skin cancer. Macy went in a week later and had the tumor, along with copious amounts of surrounding skin, removed (which is when they found the second tumor, also removed). The good news is the vet got all the cancer, it hadn't started to spread, and there's no sign of cancer in her blood - YAY! My miracle dog. :)
