Sam is home! Dr. Kerne didn't get all the lumps, she was worried about Sam after discovering how much she had to cut away to get the four she did. She sent three of them in for biopsy - please keep your fingers crossed!
This is Monty waiting for Sam to come home. Sam's Mom spent most of her day the same way!
...and here is Sam. You can see the surgery sites - one on his side and one above his hip, as well as the one on his leg she was able to wrap. There is also a fourth right above his tail, but it doesn't show in his picture.
Sam will leave the stitches alone if we tell him so, which is why he doesn't have a cone collar on. He did have the Official Surgery Shirt on to help protect them (Monty is finding them fascinating!), but Mom sent him outside this morning without rolling it up first, and Sam is a boy dog... Let's just say it is currently in the wash.
Sam was sent home with pain medicine and antibiotics. He is very sleepy, and is spending a lot of time snoozing. Mom is just relieved to have him back. Sam will need to go back in for surgery to remove the rest of the bumps after these heal, and we are worried about the results of the biopsy.
