My girl, my waf-waf...I found our first tumor on her, near her back leg. She is going to the doctor tomorrow. We will do all that is necessary to treat it. My beautiful, my love, mommy is not ready hun. I will post an update after the first visit.
Waffles has two tumors. She is going into surgery tomorrow. The doctor said we could buy another 6 months of good health, 6 months is worth it all.
Waffles came through surgery well. Both tumors were removed and will be sent for analysis. She is very weak and I will be getting up periodically the next two nights to syringe feed her baby food and high protein. Her little stitches and shaved fur look so painful, she is so brave. We got a wonderful rattie like Valium pain killer to give her as needed and she is sleeping peacefully now.
Waffles has been a good girl in her recovery tank, but she has grown bored and has started to pull at her stitches. I'm glad to see her spirit back. She moves her mouth in a big chewing motion (that I call "gobbling" like a turkey) when she is happy. She gobbled for the first time tonight since the surgery. My happy gobbling rat, I love you so much, You will get to go back to your Dandelion soon.
