6:30 PM UPDATE: He's home. He's miserable. Crying and moaning and whining non-stop. I just gave him a pain pill. He ate and drank but has no desire to go outside. I can't seem to comfort him. Usually if I sit with him and keep my hand/arm on him, he'll fall asleep for a bit. Not this time. The incision under the leg looks awful. I guess it really hurts. I hope he is able to sleep tonite. I probably won't get to post again until tomorrow. Thank you all again for your prayers and good wishes.
UPDATE: Vet called and said he did ok. He's coming out of the anesthesia. She took out the 3 worst lipomas. The one under his front leg (armpit area) was the most difficult. That area is all stitched up and the other 2 spots are stapled. She thinks they are all regular lipomas - even the one with the 'wart' but they'll be biopsied just to be sure. Thank you all so much for your good thoughts and prayers. He's 8-1/2 now and every time he has to be put out, I get very nervous. I hope and pray this is the last time he will have to go through this. He has many more lumps but they are all small and in places that don't seem to be bothering him.
I can go there at 3pm and pick him up so I'll probably post again tonite.
Thank you all very much..
I just got back from dropping him off. They let me sit with him while his pre-medications took effect. I hate coming back to my empty house. It's going to be a long couple of hours till they call and tell me he's ok. Then I have to wait to hear about the biopsies. They are most concerned about the lump under his front leg. It's deep and it grew some kind of 'thing' on the outside of his skin. None of the other lumps ever did that. If you can, please say a prayer that it all turns out ok and maybe throw in an extra one so he doesn't grow any more than those he already still has.
Thanks. I'll post tonite after he's home.
good thought and prayers to you & Buddy
