Raz had her surgery yesterday. She was a hot mess when I picked her up last night…making lots of sounds I’ve only heard on the rare occasion I’ve tried to bathe her!
Kho LOVES baths….Raz definitively does NOT.
The doctor said that the tumor looked pretty aggressive, and though she thought they were able to get it all, it was really close to the pelvis, so she gave a pretty poor prognosis. They sent it in for testing, but they were certainly unable to get the 3cm margins they were hoping for.
I’m going back and forth between being hopeful and wondering when her time will be up. Raz, of course, doesn’t realize that she only has three legs, so she wants to wander around EVERYWHERE. We were staying with family, so last night and this morning she wanted to explore. Now we’re sitting in the car about to head out and she wants to get out of her dog kennel and explore the car…
I am worried that her pain meds aren’t enough. I talked to my vet office back home last night, and I’ll probably call this morning to see if we can up her dose. Currently she’s on 50mg gabapentin 2x day, and .3ml bup 3x day. She’s so alert, I’d really like to see her a little more out of it, at least for the car ride.
Pictures to come sometime tonight/tomorrow!
