The surgeon called about an hour ago and said that Chloe is doing great after her surgery. She said it was a good thing they did the surgery when they did because her spleen was so fragile that it actually ruptured as she was pulling it out.
Dr. Watson (the surgeon) said that there were some dark spots on her left kidney that they aspirated and are sending off for a biopsy. She also removed the nodule or polyp (or whatever you want to call it) from her bladder and sent that off for a biopsy as well. She removed a fatty lipoma (benign tumor) from underneath the skin on Chloe’s chest. She’s going to be one sore girl!!
If everything continues to go well, we can pick her up tomorrow. Dr. Watson will call us again tomorrow to let us know.
Riley seems to miss Chloe a little bit, but is actually doing a lot better than I expected without her around. I figured she’d be really depressed, but she’s adjusted well. They do say that dogs are highly adaptable, so I guess that’s true.
