Warning! Graphic Pictures of Baby's Surgery...

 They discovered another lump when Baby Rocket Dog went in for her surgery today.
 Her drains are oozing blood and she still isn't feeling well.
I'm guarding the living room, since I'm 2nd in command & Baby's out of commission.
They didn't want me bothering BabyRD since she is in recovery after her surgery, so she is staying in our mudroom.  I sat next to the mudroom door after she came home and cried for her for about an hour.  I miss her.

Mommy and I will go to the thrift store tomorrow morning and buy BRD some t-shirts.  The vet's office said it would be good to keep her in a t-shirt while she has the drains in.  Her IV pain medication will wear off by tomorrow, so she has a pain pill to take for the next 5 days.  She is a very good girl and hasn't complained at all so far. She threw up once, and hasn't even had any food at all since yesterday. Sheesh.

Dr. Hall sent Baby's tumors away to University of Washington for biopsy and we should know the outcome by Monday.  Thank you all for your prayers and crossed paws.  Please keep it up!

PS-We never made it to the Mutt Strutt last Saturday because our mommy was in the ER with a kidney stone. We couldn't figure out how such a little thing would put her in the hospital! She's good now...Good thing too,  'cuz we need her to take care of us.

Paws crossed for Baby Rocket Dog and your Momma! BRD sort of looks like Franken-doggie at the moment, but we are certain she'll be back to her usual self in no time! We'll keep our paws crossed that the lumps just turn out to be plain old boring lumps and nothing else.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

BRD we do hope you have had a more comfortable day today. It is horrid having to have surgery and then stay calm and quiet.

Molly perked up on day 3 and thought she could run and play!

We are now on Day 12 and she has just come to say hello to us under strict supervision. We couldn't afford for her to split her stitches so she had to stay calm.

We have all our paws crossed for good lab results.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

Oh we forgot to say, the t-shirt was bought from our vets. It is designed for girls and covers tummy operations and fastens neatly around the tail.
