Update on Daisy's surgery

Dr Mary called dh at home.  She is out of surgery and did really well.  Dr Mary removed the mass and spleen and is going to send it out for a biopsy.  She saw a small nodule on her liver, but it didn't look the same so she left it until she gets the biopsy report back.  Daisy will spend the night at the vets tonight.  She's on morophine and lidocaine so she's probably out of it pretty good. 

Thank you all so much for all of your thoughts, prayers, kisses and hugs for Daisy and the hugs for me.  I just can't say how much they have all meant to me.

I don't know if I will go see her this afternoon because they want her quiet.  She may want to go home with me or maybe she will just be out of it so I think I will just let her rest.  She will probably come home tomorrow.

Yes I'm glad Daisy was well medicated so she won't be in pain. 

I'll be so glad to get her home this afternoon. Dr Mary will call this morning with an update I think.

Most of the time there isn't anyone there, but Dr Mary said that Amber, one of the vet techs was going to stay the night to keep an eye on Daisy.  Dr Mary has a couch and bedding in her office so they can be there and get a little sleep too.

I'm so impressed with your vet. I begged my vet to let me stay with ^Mulligan^ the night he died alone in a cage. They said it was their insurance.. My love affair for them, I think started ending then.

I'm really pleased with Dr Mary.  She really cares about her patients and does the best she can for them.  If she doesn't know something she will call and go on line until she finds out.

Daisy gets to come home today.  Dr Mary said that she is doing really well.  She said something about having to be on liver type food so I will ask more about that when I pick her up.  Not sure if she has something going on or it's from the tumor.

I think your Dr Mary is awesome too.  Maybe she is to be on liver type food because the tumour screwed up her liver a bit and she needs the food until her liver heals.

Anyway I'm so glad she is coming home today.

Give her soft kisses on her little nose for me.

You must be pretty relieved today to at least know that she made it out of surgery and is doing so well post-operatively that she can go home.  She will be glad to be back home with her mom and dad and Bear.
