First of all thank you so much for the many posts and email I have received wishing Sam well after his op, I really appreciate them all.
We have been to the vets this morning and his wound is healing nicely. The catheter has now been taken out. Had a little scare as a lump has appeared on Sam’s back, it came up suddenly so I half suspected it would be a reaction to something to do with the op. The vet checked him this morning and it is some sort of reaction, he gave us a three day course of anti-inflammatory tablets and we go back again on Friday. If the lump has gone down by then, all well and good, if not he will have to do a small cut and drain it, but he assured us it wasn’t another tumour…….phew.
The tumour has been sent off for analysis today and we are 50 Euros lighter in our bank account, this is just for the test, we haven't got a bill from the vets yet.
And I am pleased to report he isn’t incontinent (Sam that is, not the vet!)
Not much sewing has been done in the last few days, we take the “bucket” off him and give him lots of cuddles, so nothing else is getting done.
He has been such a good patient, he takes his tablets without a problem, comes to us for the “bucket” to be put back on even though he doesn’t like it, and today when the catheter was taken out, and the plaster taken off he cried, but then immediately started wagging his tail again at the vet and all the nurses……he is a little trouper – My Little Man.
