It was a long day today. I dropped Maggie off at the clinic at 10:00 this morning, which meant we needed to be out of the house by 7:30. Maggie was ready to be picked up at 4:30, just in time to hit rush hour traffic out of downtown Calgary. We got back home at 7:30 tonight.
Poor Maggie is looking quite pathetic right now. She is still drowsy from the sedative, and I imagine she is a bit sore from all the tests she had to endure. She also has a bald spot on her hip, where they did the bone marrow test. The good news is that all of her x-rays came back clear. Everything about her major internal organs looks exactly the way it should. More of the test results should be ready by tomorrow, so the doctor will call me and let me know those results. The cancer surgeon looked at Maggie today too. He said that there is "lots of real estate for him to work with". He is confident that because of the amount of tissue he has access to, he should be able to remove all of the affected cells with surgery. So, as long as the rest of the test results come back looking good, she possibly will be scheduled for surgery next week.
Things are looking a bit better, but I don't want to breath a sigh of relief until all of the tests are back and she is recovered from her second surgery and we know there are clean margins.
