Sister Sophie - Update 2

Sister Sophie had her surgery this morning, and I'm sorry to report that the news is still not very good. As expected, the surgeons took out her spleen and a nodule on her liver. Unexpectedly, however, they found two more liver nodules that they were not able to get. Lab results are expected by the end of the week. It's hard to stay hopeful, but we're all trying our best.


On the good side, Sophie will probably get to go home Wednesday. And she's scored a cushy new bed and a new toy for the long drive home.

So... please spoil your own dog a little today -- give him or her more hugs or an extra walk or a special treat. Do it for Sophie.

We're glad Sophie might go home Wednesday. We'll keep hoping for a ray of sunshine in all of this. Purrs and tail wags.

I'm heartbroken. I hope she will do well and will keep her in my prayers. She is the same age that Penny had the mast cell diagnosis. We did five months of chemo that she tolerated very well. She looked just like Sophie. My breeder(Wynwood goldens) has new puppies but my husband says he cant do it again, too heartbreaking after losing two at a relatively young age. Yes, everyone hug your sweet ones. xoxo
