Toby's pathology report did not come back as good as we had hoped for. The tumor was a grade 1 soft tissue sarcoma. The good news is the doctor got clean margins so Toby is cancer free. Her chances for a full recovery with no re-occurrence is high and now we are just going to help her get better. Her drain came out yesterday and her incision looks good and is healing well. She seems to be more comfortable today.

I'm so happy Toby is home. She was able to come home yesterday afternoon. The incision is large but Dr. Lynne was able to get all of the tumor removed. She has a drain in place and that comes out this Friday. The sutures will remain in longer.
The vet suggested a T shirt instead of one of those Elizabethan collars. She seems much more comfortable this way. Plus, she looks so cute and stylish.
