Some of you may have been wondering how our little greyhound Ride has been doing since my last post. As you'll recall, she had an emergency splenectomy and large tumor removed from her spleen a couple of weeks ago.
I'm happy to report that Ride is doing well! She had her stitches (staples) taken out on Monday, and the final report on all five tissue samples taken from the splenic tumor were BENIGN!
Our lady veterinarian cautioned me this week that in a tumor as large as this one was (12.5 lbs!), there is always a possibility that a malignancy might still be present, and not have shown up in the particular tissue samples that were examined.
HOWEVER, she also said that she thinks the percentages are in our favor with Ride and that she's hopeful the tumor was indeed benign. So, that's what Lee and I are banking on!
Ride has had a few ups and downs since her surgery, mainly related to eating and appetite. But for several days now, she's been eating very well, as long as I mix a little special "treat" like chicken broth, canned chicken, canned dog food, etc. with her regular kibble.
And our other greyhound, Harley, is LOVING all this special food and the attention that comes with it during mealtime as well! (That's Harley in the background of the photo below.)
Overall, our Little Miss Ride is doing great! And it is my fervent hope that she continues to do so. . . . . . . . . . .
