Update on Daisy's surgery
15
Tue, 01-29-2013 - 4:10pm

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.

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.

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'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.

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.

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.

Oh good, i'm glad you got to see her tonite!!  I am especially glad someone will be there with her tonite.  I hate when they want to keep them overnite, but no one is there......

No sindee you aren't thinking wrong.  I wish it would have come off.

i stopped by and just peeked in at Daisy.  She was sleeping and is still hooked up to IVs and a big bandage on her. I didn't wake her.  I just had to see her.

we will all be glad to get her home tomorrow.  Bear seems quiet without his sister here tonight.

I hate this too.  Thanks for the hugs Sindee.

Yes she's in dreamland tonight and comfortalble.  It's good that it was all contained in one area.  Praying the biopsy comes back benign.

She will love all the kisses you are saving up for her.  Thanks for allof the hugs.

Yes dh has a nodule on his lung and liver.  I hope that's all it is and it's nothing to worry about.  One of the vet techs is going to stay with Daisy tonight.
