Surgery #2

Had my #2 lump removal yesterday. I had been fasted since the night before (smart move mommy! Otherwise we'd have to make another trip another day), pre-op X-ray done and it was okay to go ahead for the surgery. I was told that cancer cases have priority so they could slot me right in.

I was out on the grass doing my toiletingπŸ’©while waiting for my turn.
Other furries with sickies were waiting too.

Around 10am I realised mom and dad had disappeared! 😰😭 
Then everything was a blur .... ....

Before I knew it, I was already in daddy's arms!

Lost another molar. The root was already infected so it had to go. Not sure if it was due to the cancer but it had been rather difficult for mom to clean that part of my mouth. Well, think on the brighter side it would easier to clean without teeth 😝.  For now, it seems that the cancer is localised on my left upper gum area. Lymph nodes and lungs are currently fine.

Dogtor showed my pawrents photo of the nasty lump in my mouth. He said there were lots of "materials" came out of the lump. Vet is Italian and he speaks English with quite a heavy accent - we think he meant to say "toxins" πŸ˜…. He is a nice and good vet, we like him.



My appetite was still good despite today's ordeal. 


Thereafter, it was good night πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

  2. That was rough. We're glad that you sailed through the operation. Just rest up so you can go out and sniff the grass.
