Surgery Scheduled For Elsie

Recommended Posts

Elsie had her post op- 12 days after her lumpectomy. Everything is fine. She is holding steadily @ 64 pounds. She was 62 from the farm.


The vet had me check to feel the lumps so that I would know what I was looking for. They feel hard and they are really tiny- like the size of a pin head- some tiny bit bigger. There are a total of 4 that we were able to find.


Her surgery is scheduled for July 27th- she should come home that night. My vet starts surgery @ 12 and Elsie will be first.


We talked about the possibility of the tumors growing back and we discussed taking the whole gland but decided not to since the margins are clear and we could always take it. She said if I feel any lumps- we will have her in the OR within 24 hours.


We are very optimistic and prognosis is excellent!


We are all in a good place- head wise!


Thanks for your continued prayers and support!


Robin & Elsie

That is good news!


When I found Sahra's "lump", it was about the size of a grain of sand. The vet was shocked that I was able to feel it. :blush


Continued prayers for Elsie!
