Our #1 dog is having major surgery on Monday. We thought it was something simple & it turned out to be a mass on his spleen. An ultrasound showed no invasion of any other organs,
but they really don't know until they get in there if it is benign.
This was such a shock, but maybe dumb luck that it was found looking for something else.
We are practically in shock as this 8 yr old has been the healthiest dog we've ever had. We are just so sad.
Please keep Rudi in your thoughts & prayers. Thanks

Andy and I have Rudi in our thoughts. We've been through this too, so we know how hard it is. Just think about all the treats he'll be needing when he comes through this just fine.

Thanks for the good thoughts! Rudi has his surgery on the 7th. He came through it like a champ. His spleen was removed as well as six small bladder stones. We don't have the pathology report yet. He went in today for the HCT volume draw & the results were excellent.
I removed the pain patch yesterday and he is almost back to his old self, except having to suffer the indignity of being carried up & down the stairs.
Keeping our fingers crossed for good news.

I'm so sorry to hear that Rudi's having health issues. I'll be sending good thoughts and healing energy to Rudi and your family. I'm sure you're giving him lots of much-needed love & attenrtion to get hin through this crisis so be well.

Good News!!!
The mass on Rudi's spleen was a benign Hematoma, possibly caused by him bumping into to something while playing.
All biopsies of other organs were clean. Now we can breathe again!!! Thanks everyone for pulling for Rudi!! I am most grateful that we are not going to lose him now and are thankful for the time he is with us. Hooray!
He will be taking his first trip to the boat this season after all, as we're in & raring to go!

Woo HOO!!
I'm relieved for you. These old dogs are gonna worry all us to death, I swear. (Said the woman who went sleepless most of the weekend bc Sage started yelping for no apparent reason... vet said it's arthritis and now we're giving her a course of steroids. Now I don't sleep bc she has to pee every 1/2 hour).

I'm telling you! I don't think I was any less upset than if it was a relative!! In fact, SOME of my relatives........well I won't go there!
Stitch removal went smooth, he still has a slight bladder infection, but really feeling fine. We're checking HCT & PCVs weekly.

Honora, I went through the same P thing with my rescue when he was on Pred. Fun Fun. I feel for your sleeplessness!

Next week the other one goes in for his annual...Lord spare me!
