Look at that face. I snagged it for the blog!

On the chip in page - and I don't have the page because it's hard to look at - is a picture of the tumor. Thinking of that and hoping that it will soon be gone and she will be all better.

Ohhh, Mary Ann, I love that pouty shot of Cheyenne. I'd just love to grab her cheeks and give her a big smooshy kiss on her nose.

In terms of the surgery, a few things come to mind in terms of everything that you've mentioned since your appointment with the surgeon.

First of all, from what you've described, it sounds like a fairly simple procedure to remove the tumor. Simple often means quick turn around time from the time Cheyenne goes to sleep until she wakes up again. If they are planning to use conscious sedation (fast acting drugs, easily reversed if necessary), then that may be why they are not overly concerned about her upper respiratory symptoms. I'd ask about that tomorrow.

The other thing I thought about as I was reading is how incredibly thorough you've been with all of this. You've asked all the right questions, talked with all the right people, and most of all, you've created a strong presence with all of Cheyenne's medical people. Your consent to surgery is well-informed. You can't do better than that, in terms of advocating for Cheyenne. The rest is out of your hands.

As you know, I'm very conservative when it comes to my dogs. I let a lot of things ride, unless I felt strongly that it would put me on a better road than I was already on. So I tried to envision myself in your shoes right now, and at this point, I think I'd be taking the same path as you.

Val's story just reinforces for me again how different our pets are from humans in terms of pain and recovery. I'm with everyone else who believes Cheyenne recognizes a good thing when she sees it, and has every intention of milking her situation for as long as she can. wink

Isoflurane smile And then there are other meds from the invoice listed on the blog but I can't post it because I turned the invoice into a fundraising list! But if you want to see what meds they have it's there.

Mary Ann,

I woke up because I forgot to post my strongest possible thoughts for Cheyenne and any possible peace of mind for you.

I think she must be an Earth Angel, we need her here for a while longer. We need her and she surely needs you.

Just take care of yourself, find something good to read, or maybe a closet to clean so the time will pass tomorrow.

all the best,
Mary Jane
