First off I want to thank everyone for the thoughts, warm wishes, prayers and notes for Ms. Hannah. She came through the surgery fairly well, but not everything is the way we had hoped. Our vet explained that he was positive Hannah had another cancerous carcinoma and that although the surgery went well (complete tumor removal)there is a better than average chance that it will reoccur at some point. Because of where the tumor was located not all of the surrounding tissue could be removed like last time, so testing everything wasn't going to give any definitive answers about the cancer or any possible progression. Therefore, the doctor advised us not to spend the extra money for the biopsy. So no waiting for results. Just hoping for the best. Right now Hannah does have some minor bleeding, pain meds, antibiotics, and she is in need of lots of rest. Jasper is happy to have his girl home. So much so that Moose can't even get near her without getting growled at. I have a feeling Jasper will be keeping vigil next to Hannah for the next few days atleast. Once again all of us want to thank everyone for the support, love and prayers. I'll be sure to let everyone know how Hannah is doing soon.

PS: I posted the exact same message on my facebook status (as some of you know) so I wanted to add a few quick updates. In the 3.5 hrs that she has been home Hannah has had a few ice cubes,6-7 bits of raw stew beef to nibble on and the bleeding is starting to clot. Obviously she isn't feeling too much pain now due to what the vet gave her today , but I am sure later on and tomorrow will be a different story. Her incision is fairy deep and about 5" long. Swelling will more than likely be a big issue. So far no pee pees, but I am sure that will come when she is ready. For now she is on her couch with 3 layers of blankets under her and Jasper's baby blanket over her resting comfortably. She sends kisses and hugs to everyone.

Just a few quick pics today right after we came home:

Can you tell Jasper is relieved to have his lady home?




once again for all the support.

Poor thing! it's wonderful she came through surgery with no complications.
Looks like Jasper is going to be her shadow for a few days.

Glad to see her home. I'm sorry the diagnosis was so vague instead of definately saying it's done. Gentle kisses to Hannah and all my prayers that this will be the last of it.
