Update

We got the results last week – it was a grade 1 tumour that hadn’t spread to her lymph node.  So it was the best we could have hoped for. We did not get clean margins (as expected) and it has a 12% chance of returning.  If that happens, we’ll have to decide what to do then.  Our options would be to do radiation, remove the tumour again or take the whole leg.  We aren’t going to worry about it unless it happens.

We went back this week for a bandage change and a recheck on the skin graft.  It’s looking good.  She thinks it is still all alive.  :)

For the most part Lacey is doing well.  She isn’t going too stir crazy, she doesn’t pout in the cone and when I take it off, she doesn’t lick at her bandages much. The stitches on her flank look fantastic and the ones from her lymph node are also doing OK.  She’ll be in a cone for about another 1.5 weeks and then we’ll get the stitches removed and she’ll be able to go back to life as usual.

That’s pretty much it. Life is feeling rather dull at the moment!
