UPDATE February 21st, 2013:
BHRR's Salma is out of surgery and recovering well – I have a VIDEO of her snoring!! 😉 Do not tell her that!! :)-
Everything went well and we also removed a 'nipple' like growth that was on her stifle. She had some pus coming out of one other nipple yet, she is on antibiotics for her UTI and that should also help this.
Her CBC came back normal yet her Bio Chem results indicate what the Vet termed a 'tumour invasion' and the lymph cytology came back on the lymph nodes that there are rare mast cells to be found yet, looks fairly clean and so appears to be fairly localised right now.
The masses have been sent off for pathology and I shall post the results when they come in.
What we have done by doing the surgery today and excising the two masses is give her more time…time she otherwise would not have had….so, be it a month, two or 8, we will be doing those playdates and day trips to give this almost 9 year old darling LIFE as she should have always known.
Thank you to all that have thought of her today and contributed well wishes and positive thoughts today for her!!!
Thank you to all that have donated to help her have this surgery to enable her to have more time…..
I knew going in that we were looking at quality of life for her and she shall have if!!!
For those wishing to have a visit with her and I just as I did with dear sweet BHRR's Concert, do email firstname.lastname@example.org
She is coming home with me after my shift today and I am so relieved that her surgery is over!!
Thanks team awesome at KAH for loving on her with me today!!! 🙂
Thank you from my soul and beyond for any possible consideration to her care……even a $1 donation is super!!
