Checkers had her surgery yesterday to remove the growth on her leg. She was in surgery for nearly 4 hours. She has a cast-type bandage with a hard splint from the top of her leg to her toes, and a 6-inch gash with stitches on her side where they had to graft skin for her leg after removing the growth. She's supposed to stay as immobile as possible for two weeks for the graft to take, and she has to go back to the vet every two days to have the bandage changed for at least the next two weeks. It's been a rough night. She can't navigate on the leg at all, and won't do her chores outside. I'm carrying her everywhere. Add to that, it's snowing a gale today. At least her appetite hasn't suffered, she's wolfing her chicken and rice. I'm looking forward to going back to the vet tomorrow to get the bandage changed, hoping they can adjust it a bit so she can move. The biopsy results on the growth should be back in the next few days. The surgeon thinks he got clear margins but it's such a tough spot, he said it could come back depending on the diagnosis. So we are holding our breath for that. I'll update when I have the report. Please keep the prayers coming for my girl.
