Surgery Update

I just got a call from Dr. C. Rascal is out of surgery and in recovery. Dr. C was very pleased with how well the surgery went. He said it is one of the few times he is happy to work with a fat cat, as they need to remove as much tissue around the tumor as possible. They were able to remove a lot of fat rather than other tissue. We will get the pathology report back on either Friday or Monday.

Depending on how his incision looks this afternoon, he may be able to come home! Your prayers and purrs are much appreciated. I'll let you all know what I hear this afternoon.

Great news! So glad to hear it.

I'm sure his "tummy tuck" will help make him a faster kitty when he comes home.

Give our love to him.

The vet said the same thing about Vincent when they removed his tumor. We are purring for Rascal. Vincent recovered quickly from surgery and we are hoping that is the case for Rascal too.

I am purring and purring for Rascal. Staying in the hospital is No Fun! I think he knew that extra fat would be very important to him one day! Now we just have to hope for a good pathology report. Waiting is very hard.
