I'm thinking everything will be ok, but I discovered a sizeable mass on Shoshi's shoulder last night. I took her to the Vet today and have decided to have it removed tomorrow. We could have done a cone biopsy today, waited a week for the results and then done the surgery but I feel better just having it removed. One surgery, one time she has to be sedated. At her age I worry about that more (sedation). Its not attached to anything but will need to be a large incision to get clear margins. So if you can please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I've been through this so many times I'm really thinking it will be ok.

Shoshi is out of surgery and in recovery groovy So far so good. I should know more later today. I'm sure the Vet will be able to give me more insight when I talk to her. I'm just so thankful she made it through the surgery. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. they really do make a difference. I'll keep you posted.

Just time for a really quick update as I need to be with my girl. She's home and the doctor believes she got it all!!!!!! I had found another, much smaller, lump last night and that was removed as well. Thank you all so much for your support.

I am so very blessed to have my little girl home, safe and with me. Thank you all for those thoughts and prayers. She's just the most amazing dog I've ever known. I know, thankfully, we all feel that way. Doesn't it feel great to know you have the most amazing dog ever right there by your side? I think we're all so very blessed.

HaHaHa. You know how I was so concerned about Shoshi's age??? eek You all will probably get a laugh out of this. spitcoffee Today when I dropped Shoshi off I went up to every single person there (and I mean EVERYONE!!) and let them know they are dealing with a 13 1/2 year old dog here!!! eyeroll From the receptionist to every tech and assistant there I made it perfectly clear that we were dealing with an older dog here! I needed everyone on the same page. thumbup

I think most people would think that's extreme, but not me. blush I wasn't going to take chances with my little girl, who just so happens to look young for her age (IMHO) smile

I don't know who taught who about strength and courage, but I'd say Shoshi and me make quite a team. She is doing great. You'd never know she has two big incisions in her. I'll get the results next week. I'm just so blessed to have her in my life.

I'm so glad that Shoshi is doing well after her surgery and that they got it all. I hope that it is totally benign and that she recovers and gets completely back to normal soon.
