Keep Da Bwat In Your Thoughts On Wed


Recommended Posts

Opal, my little Bwat is having surgery Wednesday to remove what looks like a blood blister from her tummy. I took her in to have it looked at 3 weeks ago. The vet did a biopsy and said besides RBCs, there were some cells he couldn't identify. He said if it gets larger to have it removed. Well it's really getting big. And a second spot just a millimeter away is starting to show.

 

While she's under, she's going to have a dead front tooth removed before she pulls it out playing tug-o-war, and the infection on her tail cleaned up (she cut it on a thorn bush last week).

 

Opal is 9 yrs old (even though I still think of her as my puppy) and surgery, any surgery makes me nervous. Add to it that it also might be cancer is double scary.

 

So if you can keep my Little Stinker in your prayers on Wed, I'd appreciate it.

Well I dropped Opal off at the vets. I asked them to do a chest xray first. If per chance she has cancer and it's mets, then we're not doing anything.

 

12 yrs ago I lost my 8 yr old Brindle like this. She went in to have a little spot removed from her skin. She didn't wake up. I rushed to her to U of Penn and they did emergency surgery at 1 Am. They let her go on the table, she was loaded with cancer.

 

I'm a nervous wreck.

I love my vet. He knew how worried I was especially since I lost Brindle in a similar fashion.

He just called and Opal is already out of surgery. She's fine, she's up and walking, albeit a bit wobbly. He got the nasty spot with clean margins and we'll get results back in a week as to what it was. He also took out the dead tooth and he said it was putrid. So it's a good thing I had them take it out. And the tail was still infected. But it was a lot better than what it was over the weekend. so her tail has been cleaned out, her tooth, and that nasty bump removed.
I'll pick her up at around 4.

 

PHEW!
