The doctor called at 3:15, he had just put her in recovery, and she was still out. The surgery went okay and he is 'cautiously optimistic,' but it will take up to a week to get the pathology report back. The spleen was so enlarged that it had started to split and he had to make a larger than usual incision to get it and the tumor out. He said everything else looked clean, but he took a sliver off the liver to be biopsied, too, just to make sure. He said the tumor looked like it may be just a hematoma, which is what we are praying for, but he could not be sure. I thank God that we got her in there when we did, or that split could have been fatal - she could have bled to death internally. We're to call back around 6:30, when they will have her awake and be trying to get her on her feet. I will try to post again after that.

Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts, and please keep them going until we get the lab results. Thank You, God for taking care of our little girl! :)

UPDATE:

Just spoke with the vet and we may be able to pick Shadow up in the morning! ;D He said she is recovering very well, nice pink gums and inner eye lids, sitting up in her cage, wagging her tail, watching them, and acting like she wants to go for a walk. He said they'll give her some green beans in another hour or so, and do an anemia check in the morning. If her levels are good, we can pick her up. WOOHOO!!!

Re: Shadow is out of surgery

So happy to hear she went through the surgery ok. Thank god they found it before it ruptured! Will be saying prayers for a good pathology report to come back on the tumor and liver.

Now she can EATagain! :) Well probably won't want to for a few days possibly.
