Rectal Adenocarcinoma mass removal surgery is over, Cooper is home safe and sound

I picked Cooper up from his overnight stay an hour ago. He came charging out of the room, tail wagging and a huge grin on his face. Hie e-collar preventing him from running right into the wall!

To look at him, you would never know he just had rectal surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. The car ride home was uneventful and he was able to get in and out of the car himself.

His bottom is red and angry looking, but not as bad as I had pictured in my mind. He is so sleepy and is crashed out right now on the floor. Thank you all so much for your prayers. The next step is waiting for the biopsy results, until then just lots of loving. Here is the link, if it works to my album to show you what you might be able to expect if you have a Golden that might go through this.

Sweet boy. I'm sending prayers that the biopsy shows a benign mass and that they got every last bit!

Sending prayers! That must have been such a relief to see him so full of energy when you picked him up.

Lots of prayers coming from me and Jess. It's amazing how they bounce back after surgery.

Yay! Glad he's home and his surgery site isn't as bad as you thought it might be! I was truly amazed how Scout came bounding out to us after his extensive surgery.

Home is where the best healing takes place. Keep us posted.

Good thoughts for Cooper as he recovers from the surgery. Hoping the biopsy comes back with good news.

So glad to see Cooper is home and things are going well Did he have an epidural?

He looks so much like my girl - give him some extra loving from us.
