Just catching up on your posts. I've had an animal in the hospital before for a long period of time (U of Guelph) and can sympathize with your feelings about seeing her sedated. Just keep telling yourself she was sedated for a reason - to make her less scared/more comfortable/whatever. That's the kind of care she needs right now. I know, it's really hard.

Sending good thoughts for a visit with her today. My offer still stands if you need anything at all, during the week my office is @ Bloor/Church so I'm right around the corner.

I just saw your post from Nov. 15 about them being wrong on Tesia's Tests and I am so sorry. Please give her some big hugs and kisses when you see her today.
In the meanwhile, I am praying!!

Thinking of you and so sorry that you are going through this with sweet Tesia. I understand exactly how you are feeling, it broke our hearts to have to leave Daisy at the vets and come home without her everyday. Just remember that Tesia is in the best place right now, getting the care and help that she needs. It sounds like you've got a great team looking after her and it's good that you can call anytime to check how she's doing.

Like the others have said there's lots of goldens on here fighting - Andy, Hannah, Reno and lots more, and Tesia can be another one. Goldens have a fantastic spirit and zest for life and will live each moment to the full. Try and stay positive, we are all here for you and understand your pain.

You and Tee are in my thoughts and prayers.
I hope she is doing better and gets to come home soon.

I am so very sorry you are going through this. Tee is a lovely girl and I know has a soul to match her good looks.

Thank you all so much. Your support and advice and positive thoughts are helping me so much everyday.

After talking to the intern last night, I slept through the night for the first time since Thursday. I woke up at 8, but then BOLTED out of bed at 8:06 when my phone rang. I saw "emergency vet" on my display and said, "oh, no." But, all was well, thank goodness. The intern felt awful - she said she forgot it was Sunday. I said I didn't care as long as she was okay.

All is going well with the wound. There is still a LOT of drainage, so she still can't come home today. The bandages were changed twice overnight, and will be changed multiple times today. But she is being taken off the IV painkillers, and I will be planning my visit to happen before she is sedated again. I really want her to be able to get some comfort from my visit.

My own vet also called me yesterday to see how Tee is doing. She's the one who got in touch with the surgeon Friday and got her in to see him right away. I had to tell her about the cancer having spread already to Tesia's lungs. She was just stunned and sad, too. She has been so wonderful through this. I told her that, and she said, when she met Tee (just a few weeks ago - she is my regular vet's mat leave replacement) she just felt there was something special about her. She wanted to make sure I feel like she is in good hands, and she said she is going to do some reading and research (assuming it IS melanoma; we won't get the definitive results for at least a week). She also spoke to a pathologist (not THE pathologist who did the test with the different findings who hasn't returned her calls. My vet is furious at the unprofessionalism) about the two different results. She was equally baffled at how they could be so different. I'm still holding out hope that something got mixed up. I know there are nodules in her lungs, but nodules CAN be benign. They are assumed to be cancerous right now because of the large mass and the small back bump being cancer. But if that large mass ISN'T cancer... I have to hold onto that.

Definitely praying that the large one is benign! I'm so glad that you have a vet that is so good! Keeping you and sweet Tesia in our thoughts and praying that she can come home tomorrow.

It's been such a sad four days - so I just want to write about the good visit I had with Tee this afternoon.

She was alert and so happy to see me. She rooooed her happiness, tried to hold my arm in her mouth (despite the cone) and then was thrilled when I showed her I brought a toy for her mouth. We took off the cone so I could kiss her sweet face and head. She had a little snack (man, wet food reeks, but I loved watching her wolf it down - WITH a Tramadol tucked inside!) and a big drink of water, and then curled up beside me and fell fast asleep. I think she probably has been so nervous in back, despite having her own kennel, that she probably isn't sleeping well (I can relate). We just sat quietly together for hours (the hospital sets you up in a private room with blankets on the floor). I couldn't stand to wake her up. Finally, one of the techs came in to check that everything was okay, so since she woke up, I thought it might be good to let her get back into the back room. That was sad, and she totally didn't want to go, but at least I know she was feeling better. Her wound is looking better, too, though it's not for the squeamish. I hope she can come home tomorrow.

Here she is. She really was looking better today, despite looking a bit sad in the pictures:
