They only started Libby's surgery at 3pm. There were emergencies and sicker dogs; we had been warned that might happen.
The surgery itself turned out to be more involved. There was the outer fleshy tumor. Unfortunately, there was also a separate second tumor just underneath her flesh, in her breast. Neither tumor infiltrated bone or lung, but the doc did say the second tumor was 'a little worrisome'. The biopsy results won't be back until the middle of next week.
They also required a much larger incision area, too, than originally expected. So, they are keeping her overnight. They will give her antibiotics and pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs. We will also have to give her those at home as well.
We have to call tomorrow at 9:30am to make arrangements for her to come home.
I know it is the best place for her to be, but I hate her not being here.
Thank you everyone for all your prayers and good wishes. It really helps to not feel alone.
