Out of Surgery but not out of Woods

Gorby is out of surgery.

Did "well" -- tumor is removed. He is still sleeping off the anethesia.

Doc said the tumor was large, but no evidence that it had invaded the bowel (good).

Lymph nodes are "huge" (not so good). Partly because they were near a blood source and partly because of the cancer.

If the sutures hold and he starts to heal quickly, he could be home by Sunday/Monday.

Then we take it one day at a time.

Oh wow! Thanks for the news: it does sound mostly good?

Thanks for you nice comment .. I'm a little fearful ... putting all those opinions out there like that.

We will be continuing to send our best thoughts and kitty prayers your way.
