And, I have to ask, what's going on with Emma? (Sorry if I'm annoying, I like to try and keep up!)

Thank you for asking about my girl and thanks for all the bumping :D

Emma is doing great. She didn't get as red and sore on the area as I was afraid of. She's healing good. The fur is growing back on the side of the area and I think she's going to get at least a bit of hair on the area. Vet said some dogs don't get any hair, some get a little and some get hair of a different color ( wich I would say white). It looks like she's going to get just a few smaller patches without fur, but I guess it's too early to say. But I don't really care. The only thing that matters is that the lump is gone and never comes back.

She has cleared her throat once a day or so, because the mucous membrane in her throat has been a little dry. I don't think she's feeling sore in her throat, as her appetite is great again. The first week or two she didn't have any appetite for kibble, just meatballs and fish, dog biscuits and stuff like that. So I let her eat what she wanted. She lost about 2 pounds, but didn't get too thin and has probably got a pound or so back by now. .

The Vet said the thyroid could get effected, because it's in the area. In that case it could be temporary, or it could stay down. Then she would get medecins for that. A blood sample was sent and the vet delivered the happy news, last monday, that the thyroid test came back just fine. We'll make a new test IF she get very tired, start freezing or get fatter, which all are signs for reduced thyroid levels.


She's such a good girl. :)

I'll try to take some new pics of my girl tomorrow :)

Long story short: Emma had a Hemangiopericytoma, a tumor, had it removed in August. Grew back and second surgery in January 8. 26th of January we went 100 miles (one way) to start radiation therapy. She totally got 6 treatments, two times a week. She's now recovering.
