Post-Surgical Update

Em had her surgery yesterday. She had a “fatty mass/tumor” at the top of her right arm/shoulder area that was getting larger slightly, so the doc recommended removal of it. That was yesterday.

If a surgical wound bothers you, back-button out of here, but here are photos of Em upon arriving home after a whole day at the vet’s:

Em's surgery day 1

She was quite drugged up still from the anesthesia and pain meds. She was not “herself” – let’s just put it that way. We were very happy to have her home, and Kip especially was happy to have her back. They are lost without each other and when one goes down to dog-doctor’s, the other pines away here until they are reunited. Loudly pines…

But I have to say that Kip was pretty good yesterday. Once the initial shock of Em and Paul leaving the house without him wore off, he kept me company pretty quietly… a good boy he was.

All for now, Em is needing me for something…

Cheers, just in general,


It’s in every one of us to be wise;

Find your heart, open up both your eyes.

We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.

It’s in every one of us, by and bye.

    Oh, poor baby! That looks like a really nasty incision. I hope it heals real quickly, so Em can get back to being her sweet self!

    Sending everyone hugs. It’s always hard when someone in the family is hurting.

    Poor Em. She is so lucky though to have her buddy and her Mom & Dad.
    My White/Tri-Factored rescue collie, Maia, had to have a huge lump off under her arm and she has been great ever since. Doc said they can grow back but one year in she has no more.
    All the best to Miss Em!

    Glad all went well.

    I am concerned about Buddy if anything happens to Buster. He will yell constantly when Buster is out of sight. Buster is the older bird I think.

    Best wishes to Em for speedy healing and a boring path report.
