    DefaultMy sweet abbey girl is in the recovery room now.

    *UPDATE*
    We got the results. It was a mast cell tumor, and it was cancer. I guess pathology forgot to grade it so I have no idea how aggressive this cancer is. (or was?) The Vet seemed to think he got it all, surrounding tissue tested clear, and lymph nodes seemed clear. But he mentioned that it will most likely come back in the same spot or another. Her stitches have been removed and she is healing up ok. She's energetic and happy, I have to hold her back from overdoing it, the incision was on her rib cage so it seems like it'll take a while to heal thoroughly.

    Thanks to all of you who sent good thoughts.

    Hi All,

    I'm posting for my best friend, Abbey. She's a 5 year 4 month old Lab mix-


    She's just had surgery to remove a lump. My Vet said the incision ended up being 3 inches across, so it was much more than I had imagined it would be, the actual lump was fairly small, but of course, he had to make sure it was all gone. He'll be sending it off to the pathology lab so we can find out exactly what we're dealing with.

    Just looking for lots of good healing vibes and love to be sent her way. I love her more than life itself.

    Oh, good thoughts for your girl. She looks so sad in that picture. I hope the tests come back benign.

    Thanks, she's so young I really hope so. Actually this pic was the other day, just cuddling on the couch with my husband. I have not picked her up yet, she's still there letting the anesthesia wear off, I have to call in another hour and a half. So I have not even seen her yet. She'll definately be wearing a collar for a while, it was on her rib cage, so she could reach it.

    Thanks so much everyone!

    She cried during the night a few times, but I was right there to comfort her. My husband gave up his spot on the bed and took the couch so that she could have extra space with her E-collar to sleep beside me. (she always sleeps in the middle anyways, spoiled baby)

    The pain meds must be working because she's asleep on the couch now. She's happy but tired. I'll update with the pathology results, should be a few days.

    Thanks so much for all the good thoughts! It means a lot to us.
