A few of you ask how Carmen was doing. I picked her up Saturday from the vet. I was happily surprised that she was doing as well as she was. She has one of those big collars on and it is somewhat hard for her to navigate through the doors. She acts and looks fine. The doctor removed half of the mammary tumor because there was not enough skin to stretch over and stitch.
We have to return in two months for another check up. The test results on the tumor will be back in about ten days. I guess we will go from there. Carmen was not spayed and I guess that the other surgery took precedence over it.
As I write this she is laying on the floor next to me asleep. At night she stays in the guest bedroom and sleeps like a queen on the king size bed. I took pictures of her and sent to my sister. She was relieved to see how well she was doing. I am thankful that she is taking her medicines because Sissy has trouble getting Carmen to keep the pill and swallow it. I covered the pill with a little peanut butter and she is looking for more.
I am thankful that she is doing so well. I am glad that nothing is oozing or bleeding because that would be gross. She gets to wear this lovely collar for ten days. I think she will be a champ at getting through the doors with this big collar on.
Another good note is that my granddaughter, Ali, phoned me this morning and she is feeling much better. Her big brother is sick now. I hope he won't be sick too long.
