Isabelle did really well during surgery. The vet said her heart was strong, and she came out of anesthesia quickly. The tube irritated her throat some, causing coughing, but nothing terrible.
The incision is pretty long, probably 3-4 inches. We won't get the pathology report for 5-7 days. The tumor itself will be graded, and they tested the nearest lymph node, too.
Last night, Isabelle was one grumpy pug. She did not get the bedtime treat of Cheerios that we always get. Mom thought she was being sneaky by giving us our Cheerios on the floor, but Isabelle knew.
|These nearly blind eyes are accusing. ACCUSING!|
This morning, she was pretty unhappy when everyone else got to eat, and she didn't. She fussed the whole time. Then snarfed around the car seat for a crumb.
She wasn't super thrilled to be back at the vet either. For the fourth time in a week.
The vet tech took the opportunity to clean her ears, eyes and nose while Isabelle was out. It's the only way it can be done without her trying to bite.
She was pretty loopy on the ride home, too.
However, she perked up when it was time to eat. Just a little at first, then more as the evening goes on. She has a whole cup of food to eat in only a few hours!
Here's the little patient, just waiting to pop up from the bed as soon as mom moves.
We have to keep her incision clean, make sure she has her meds on time and gets lots of rest.
She's still loopy but she made it.
Isabelle Sassypants will ride again.
