Maddie Update!

Just a quick post to let you know that Maddie is home and doing pretty well.  She went straight outside and stuck her whole face in the water bucket.   If you know Labs, then you know that this is perfectly normal:).  The large mass came out fairly easily and was just a fatty tumor.   She is able to move pretty well, and for that I am thankful!  She is a BIG Lab.

I will spare you the pictures.  There are a lot of stitches, and I really have to watch for infection.   Now the trick will be to keep her quiet so all of her stitches can heal up.    I guess we are all going to be watching TV and being still for the next 10 days.  One of us will go stir crazy before too long, and it won't be a canine.

Thanks for your kind words and prayers!

  4. Yay! Glad to hear everything went well. Good luck keeping her calm! ;)

    1. I will need it! I am so happy she is able to walk on her own and is feeling well enough to move, and on the other hand...she is moving! Keeping her down and the stitches in will be a challenge. Love her to pieces, but she has never been what you would call a calm dog:). So glad I went ahead with it because she is moving better now with the stitches than she was last week with the tumor on her hip.
