Rocco's okay.

Rocco had his surgery yesterday and he's okay. They took a chest x-ray to see if the cancer had spread and it hadn't. Yea!!!!!!!!! He has a huge incision on the side of his face, it's about 8 inches long, and his face looks kind of caved in. They must have taken a ton of tissue out from there. I read that's the procedure with mast cell tumors because you have to get it all. They've sent the edges off for biopsy to make sure they are clean. I'm so relieved!! My stomach was in knots all day yesterday just waiting to hear. It's just amazing how attached we get to our animals. He cost me a bloody fortune, cancer surgery is not cheap folks, but it was worth every penny to know he's okay.

As for me, eh, not so hot!!! I didn't workout yesterday because we had the whole vet thing in the morning, plus I had to take Nala to work with me. I should workout this morning and I probably will. Oh, I don't know.

Anyway, I'm happy and broke and off to hug the dogs :)

The aftermath

The move is over, though the work will continue for quite some time. It was an interesting week or so. Let me recap: On Thursday, Aug 2...
