Happy SeptEMMA!

Happy SeptEMMA everybody!  You know how I love to rename months and since Emma’s half birthday is on the 13th and this month is all about her recovery, the month has been renamed in her honor!

The trip to Davis was exhausting and stressful but we just keep reminding ourselves how lucky we are to live a few short hours from one of the best veterinary hospitals in the world.  I won’t go into all of the gory details but let’s just say Emma’s mouth and throat were a disastrous mess…..much worse than we originally thought.  The surgeon did a great job but Emma is still at high risk for lots of complications over the next few weeks.

But the great news is that Emma has no idea how sick she is!  She’s happier than she’s been in weeks and wants to get back to her day job of being a spoiled puppers instead of playing the role of cancer patient recovering from surgery.

And now we wait for the biopsy results to come back……the oncologist thought it looked like radiation side effects when she saw Emma two weeks ago…..but the surgeon who just saw her thought it looked like cancer.  Sooooo…..I’m on pins and needles for the next week waiting for results to come back……but I’ll just keep trying to move forward, enjoy life and remain hopeful!
