This is just a preliminary report. Terri is doing a substitute job today, and when the vet called, things were crazy busy, and she had trouble getting everything but will have more later.
Surgery is over, and Margarita is resting. They scoped her again prior to surgery, and the stomach ulcers are healing very nicely. No sign of tumors in the stomach. Exploratory surgery revealed a pancreas that looked "ill," so 1/2 of it, or 1 lobe was removed. There was something else that TL didn't understand which the vet said "looked diseased." Both the removed tissues will be biopsied and result back in a week. There were no tumors, just sick tissues, so we're not sure exactly what that means until she or Kirk can talk to the vet again.
Family is not allowed to see her today as they want her to be quiet. Tomorrow will be visit day. Margarita is mad at Daddy. He is the one who took her in. He forgot her ongoing meds, so went back later to drop them off, and she ignored him. Gave kisses to the children but would barely acknowledge him. This is very unusual, as she adores Kirk. Little lady has an attitude, fer sher!
Keep prayers coming, please and thank you. She's doing well but not out of the woods just yet. I'll let you know. Hey, I think Terri should do a blog, don't you? ;-))
