UPDATE 11/24 6:20 pm
Dixie is home! She is not happy with the e-collar, but she wants to lick the incision. It will be Monday before we have the biopsy results. Going to give her a little rice and a LOT of lovin'! Thank you, thank you for all the prayers and concern. ♥♥♥
UPDATE 11/24 1:00 pm
Dixie is out of surgery & in recovery. Vet is still leaning toward an old fracture, but we are still sending off a sample to be sure. An added bonus, they removed an epulis from her gum that has been there for several years but we never wanted to put her under anesthesia just to remove that. So, I get to call back around 3:00 to see if she is ready to come home!
Thanks again for prayers!!
UPDATE 11/24 11:22 am
Nothing really to report. I took her in & she was so scared - she does not do the vet very well, even though they are great there. They called me a couple of hours after I took her in & said she had had her blood drawn & they had given her something to make her drowsy. (I was still sitting in the parking lot!) They were not sure when they would do the actual procedure since it was being worked in between pre-scheduled surgeries. So, I am just sitting here now (finally went to work) waiting for the call that she is out and in recovery. Thank you all so much for the prayers & thoughts. It means a lot. I will update when I hear something.
Please say a prayer for my sweet Dixie. I took her to the vet today to get a knot on top of her foot checked out. They x-rayed & the vet thinks it is possibly an old break (toe), but they are going to do a bone biopsy in the morning to rule out bone cancer. She is not in any pain and does not favor the foot at all, but it worries me all the same. Please pray that she does well under anesthesia and that the results are negative for cancer. Thanks.
