Surgery Day

Toast made it through the surgery fabulously. Within hours he was headbutting the vet techs , purring and even hopping around a bit. Apparently it was easy peasy!

They removed his front right leg and shoulder and believe they got all of the cancer, but now we will wait 2 weeks until the biopsy comes back, to discover if he will need chemotherapy or not.

T had kept thinking about how traumatic the amputation would be, but in hindsight realize what a relief it must be to no longer be in such pain. Although the incision sight and removal of his leg must be painful, it likely is nowhere as painful as was walking wait on join that had been almost completely eaten away.

Cannot wait to get the big old puffball, back into my hands tomorrow.
