Libby is doing well. Still moving slow, but is eating, drinking and pottying well. I keep her quiet and separated from the boys, especially Tugg. He plays way too rough and I am too afraid he will hurt her. Don't expect to hear pathology report till maybe Monday. If it comes back benign I will be over the moon, if it is otherwise, we will deal with that then. At least now I know there is no danger of a ruptured spleen.

Making progress, slow but sure. Still waiting on lab report. Libby is eating well, eliminating well. Starting to be a little more lively. Still pretty slow and sore though. Today I have allowed the boys to be with her a little, under very close supervision. Raider is quite a love with her, gentle, as he always is, he seems to know she needs special care. I was a little concerned about Tugg, still a pup, but so darn active and plays so hard. But even he seemed to know he needed to dial it down, I reminded him a couple of times to settle down, but we had none of his usual wild antics and rough play. The four of us even had a bit of a stroll around the back yard, bitter cold out so we weren't out long, but it was good to see things hopefully getting back to normal. Now if only I knew what to expect, regarding the pathology report.

some of the slowness is probably the tramadol. That's not necessarily a bad thing! Glad to hear she's doing well, fingers crossed for pathology.

I have to chuckle a bit, "sweet" is not a word I would use to describe Libby! She is an absolutely delicious, lovable wild child and at age 11 can run circles around most dogs 9 years younger than she is! She loves life to no end, is non-stop motion, and is one of the smartest goldens you will ever meet.
But sweet? Hmmmm.....not really. Cut from the same mold as my Tiny, I think.

Yippeeeee!!!!!!!!

No cancer, it was a splenic hematoma. I am so relieved and happy. I do think though there will be no more rough play between her and Tugg, I wonder if during one play time he got too rough with her and injured her spleen causing the hematoma. I will never know for sure, but am just counting my blessings for this diagnosis.

Oh my goodness, I am so happy for you! That is the best news! Enjoy your girl and give her some extra ear rubs!
