He didn't phone until 2.15 (by which time all horrible thoughts were going through our head) to say the x-rays were clear and they were then going to start the surgery. At 4.15 he rang to say it had all gone well and we could even colect Daisy later last night to bring home. The longest 2 hours of my life!
Can't even begin to describe the relief. After going through this operation three times since last October, and the Chemo, we both were thinking the worst but..... Daisy is one strong brave girl! She was VERY wobbly last night and just wanted to sleep but today is much better. Eating like a horse and even went to get her lead for a walk this morning but I think I'll wait until tomorrow for that! Don't want to tire her out. We've had a wander round the garden which will have to do for today.
Daisy's scar is the whole length of her tummy, she looks like a huge pyjama case. If she falls asleep the right way I'll try to take a picture but she seems a bit reluctant to let me look at the moment. Can't blame her!
We have a check-up at the vets tomorrow morning to discuss the operation so he can explain how it all went so I'll keep you updated.
Karen and Daisy

|Give Daisy a big gentle hug from us.. I think we suffer more than our babies, with the worrying and stressing.
Glad to hear that everything will be fine with your girl
|We are so glad that all went well. Big hugs for Daisy girl!
|Hugs (gentle) for Daisy!! What a relief it must be to have it over with.|
|So happy to hear it didn't spread.
Best wishes to Daisy for a speedy recovery.
|What fantastic news! Daisy sure is a trooper, bless her heart. Gentle hugs to that beautiful girl from me and Drez, please!|
|Thanks for all your kind thoughts. Yes, we are VERY glad to have her home! We are sooo relieved it hadn't spread to her lungs but this is now the third time they have had to operate to remove solid tumours from her mammories. The first time the vet assured us that he had removed all the tumours but 6 weeks later - we found more. More surgery. Again just 2 months on and here we are again. I can't beleive she has had to go through all this again so soon. Surely it can't happen any more? Maybe it will be third time lucky and this will be the end of it.
We will find out more tomorrow when she has her check-up. The pictures have been approved so do take a look if you want to - warning! Its not pretty! I couldn't show the whole scar as Daisy wasn't happy to oblige but you can see the front of it. I think a whole families pyjamas would fit in there! Maybe the vet should have fitted a zip this time in case it happens again. NO - let's be positive - this was the last time. (fingers crossed)
|Well hopefully third time is a charm for Daisy.|
|I am so happy to hear they got it all. Hopefully this will be it and no more surgeries will be needed. Give her a big kiss from me.|
|I am so glad the surgery went well, sending gentle hugs for daisy.
Are all her mammerys removed now? Just wondering as a friend of mine years ago had a similar problem with the tumours on the mammerys.
Started off with one lot of surgery, then chemo, another appeared later and eventually the vet did a complete mammary strip to stop it re-ocurring in the breast tissues. Then chemo again and all went well and she lived on for quite a few years after till old age caught up.
You have a wonderful strong sweetie there and wishing daisy all the best and hopefully no more set backs. Hugs to you both.
I realized I had been holding my breath the entire time reading your post until I got to the part where it said the surgery went well. I"m so happy!!!!!!
I realize how difficult that must have been and you as her mom must have been so worried. You're right about your Daisy she sounds like she's got the fighting spirit in her. It's obvious she's so loved that I think having you as her mom also made a big difference.
Give Daisy a special hug from me.
Only just read about Daisy, hope she makes a quick recovery. Big hugs
|Hi Karen, We are so sorry to hear of Daisy problems. Let's hope she will make a swift recovery and return to normal. Very best wishes to you all
|Your brave sweet girl is just breaking my heart with all that she's been through. Hope it is behind you now. & . Feel better sweet Daisy.|
