Medical Update

Hi Everyone, today is a rough day for us because Fudge went in for surgery this morning. Yesterday Rob and I clipped the areas over each of the bumps and this morning his nurse Sara marked each of them with a marker to make them easily visible. He looked pretty strange.
I just received a call from Sara and surgery is over. The doctor removed two growths from his chest, one from his shoulder, one from his hip, one from his tail and the bad one on his side, six in all. He has stitches in four of them and will need to wear the cone of shame for a couple weeks.

Dr B also cleaned his teeth and trimmed his gums, so the boy is like new again, though with a few shaved areas and a bunch of stitches.

He's not fully awake yet so we'll pick him up around 3:15 and bring him home to rest. I'll post more after I see him and settle him in. Thanks for all your good wishes. Keep those paws crossed till the pathology report comes back.

Years ago (back in the 80's actually) we had a Chihuahua-Terrier mix who also developed what sounds like the same type of lumps. She actually had to have 2 surgeries because some of them came back a couple of years later. She had stitches on her legs, her chest, her tail, her side, her belly, and even on top of her head. She kind of resembled Franken-Chihuahua. Most of the lumps were non-cancerous. A couple of them were very low-grade cancers. But they were all removed and the low-grade ones never grew back. Sandy lived to a ripe old age of 17. Keeping Fudge in our prayers that everything will turn out just fine.
