I am so happy to be able to tell everyone that my surgery went well and I am feeling great! They were able to remove the tumor with clean margins and I should do very well going forward. Dr. Judy does not expect it to come back. I do have a scar but it is healing little by little and I will get my stitches out next week.
Ouch! It actually looks even better than this now; this picture is from Sunday. I have been very brave and not seemed to be in pain at all. I was a little wobbly as we left the vet (I couldn’t wait to get out of there!) and when I got home I rested for a while. Then I pretended that I wanted to go on a walk (because Buster was going). But I was faking, after 1 block I sat down and then ran back home and went straight onto my bed! But by that evening I was playing with my toys.
As a bonus, I had my teeth cleaned while I was under anasthesia and now my breath smells super fresh!
I was all ready to attend a family picnic by the bay on Sunday.
Buster got to go too!
We had a good time. Jon took me on a walk by the water:
And I discovered I really enjoy eating watermelon!
I love summer!
