The one-eyed Cookie Thief had some serious surgery yesterday. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a mass on his right adrenal (pheochromocytoma) and an abnormality in his small intestine. He went through his surgery well and they removed his right adrenal with the mass, found a nodule in his left adrenal and removed half of that gland, and resected the abnormal section from his small intestine. He also had a kidney biopsy. Kidney looked OK (some cysts but just making sure). No involvement with major blood vessels and lymph nodes all clear. He got one unit of blood and is on IV pain meds, fluids and is being monitored but generally doing well. They will be testing to see if his remaining adrenal produces enough hormone to compensate, or if he will need support meds for thatI hope to bring the poor baby home on Friday. Yesterday was a real hair-puller but our surgeon expects a full recovery. Healing prayers for our special and much loved rescue boy will be greatly appreciated! His little "sister" Lady is upset her big brother isn't home and is looking for him. She "velcroed" herself to me all day yesterday...She was doing better this morning.
