Glad to know she's home. She seems to know she's to get completely spoiled now. Good luck with the meals and finding what she wants at that moment. Hoping for good news tomorrow crossedfingers

Last night's meal - same deal. Ate the fancy stuff followed by some kibble. She's moving much better without that spleen - it was 2 to 3 times normal size so that was a lot of pressure pushing other organs around.
Today's news --- no cancer detected in biopsy. Recovery continues, stitches will be taken out (dog "unstapled") on Saturday. Tried taking off the shirt = too much attention to incision so it is back on. To say I'm happy with the results would be an understatement.

Excellent news on the biopsy results, you must be in 7th heaven. cheers Hope she keeps the shirt on and leaves the stitches alone until Saturday when they are unstapled. Lots of luck!

She did eat a bit for breakfast yesterday and a good dinner. This morning she started worrying the staples so the shirt was no longer working. She now has the inflatable collar (looks rather like an innertube) in place because she was fussing at the site before we got home - and she is not supposed to do that for 48 hours....

Didn't like the idea of plain kibble this morning or early afternoon either.

Vet said that the incision looked good. So that's good news.

I'm glad to hear the incision is healing well. Hopefully the worrying it is because it's healing and itchy.

Hoping her appetite sorts it out soon. She's doing so well!

I'm so glad to hear she is doing so well. Those inflatable donuts work so much better than the cones that are so rigid. Keep up the good work, sounds like she is well on her way to recovery. happyboogie

Somedays she's up, some she's not. Today seems good. I, on the other hand, let's say "sleep interrupted" too many times.

Yesterday's menu was a wee bit of kibble mixed with fancy refrigerated food from the natural food grocery and cottage cheese. This was after deciding against kibble, fancy stuff, cheese & brewer's yeast & yogurt -- which had been quite tasty a day earlier. But two servings yesterday.

Today, she stayed home while I took BTY2 to track and a bit of obedience. She wanted to come, though, which was a good sign. Now I need to nourish myself and see what Ms. gourmet deems acceptable today.

And find what I did with my watch quick before I forget to look for it.... (which has been happening a lot.)

It sounds like Ms. Gourmet is back on track even if she has some ups 'n downs. As for your "sleep interrupted" if you mean what I think you mean then many of us are in the same boat. wink

My goodness, they can be fussy eaters can't they? Yesterday's prime rib needs to be replaced with Filet Minon today rofl

Hope you found your watch.

Here I thought was the only one who still used a watch. Everyone else I know uses a cell phone. rofl

Sounds like BTE is as fussy as Ciara can be sometimes.

As for your "sleep interrupted" if you mean what I think you mean then many of us are in the same boat. wink ---- Well, some of it is me but a lot of this was dogs moving about - I'm sleeping downstairs and to save the planet their beds have plastic "mattress covers" underneath the fabric covering.

And watches -- yes, time is circular, here. ...

Found the watch. Like many things lately, it was in a good spot. I just needed to look more carefully.

Cell phone - carried for emergencies, often needs charging, gets naggy calls urging me to upgrade ---- friends know to use the, get this, land line number...

Off to see what I can get that dog to eat tonight...
