Waiting Is So Hard

I am still nervously waiting for the Vet's call with Maggie's final pathology report.  She called on Monday to say that the preliminary results were in and that it looks like the surgeon got clean margins.  That is great news!  That means that Maggie will not need to have another surgery.  They did not have the results on the lymph node.  I thought I would have heard something by now, and am getting more nervous as each day goes by.

Maggie is doing great.  Her incision looks really good and she can get her stitches out in another week or so.  She is off of all of her pain medication and you would never know by the way she is acting that she just had surgery a week ago.  She had lots of fun playing in the snow today and catching the snowballs that I threw at her.  


  1. Hang in there, Kim. I am sure that everything will be just fine!
    It is nice to hear that Maggie is having fun again. See...there was a good reason for your snow today. It was just for Maggie!

  2. We are keeping our fingers crossed for good luck on the results. It is hard to wait for that kind of information. I hope you hear by tomorrow. Diana

  3. Waiting is so hard. I am glad you were able to get out and have some "snowfun" with Maggie and Bosley. Our dogs thought the snow was the best ever....of course they didn't have to shovel it, but Roxy loves to bite the shovel.

  4. paws, fingers and toes are crossed here too Kim

    I hope you hear soon

  5. WOOOHOOO!!!

    So glad to hear that the results are coming back good!

    Sorry we are a little behind. Give Maggie a big hug from us.

    Lots of Luv & Kisses
    Addie, Lucie and Hailey
