I know, I know, it's been weeks and weeks! I expected to be gone for a week in our Spring trip to Japan--actually I thought I might get to post at least once from there, but no, the internet was way too spotty for me to get anything online. But when we got home I took one look at Honeydog's face and freaked out... About two months ago we noticed a small spot on her face, could have been a bump, or a bruise, so I thought, well let's wait and see. Right before we left, it STILL hadn't gone away so I took her to a vet who looked at it and said tumor! I thought, really? Tumor, no test, no real look, just a glance and a poke. So we went on vacation, praying all the while that this lump would just go away. However, this is one time where my wait and see policy did NOT pay off. When we got back I could tell right away that this was not just going to disappear, and I began to worry, and visit vets. And worry, and visit vets.
Even when they took her in to operate (yes, they put her to sleep, and cut out a huge chunk of her face) people came and went from the operating room ALL THE TIME!
But she is home eating, drinking, and resting well. She has to wear the cone of shame for the next two weeks, but it's a small price to pay for our Honeydog to be ok.
