All good news. While the biopsies are still pending, until Tuesday 4/9, when we learn whether the tumors are cancerous (I personally think not, due to slow growth of tumors and health of animal), we get to breathe easier about how well Lucy has done at the vet’s. With Much Love rescuing her on Wed 4/3 and proceeding with the much needed surgery on the big gash on her thigh on Thursday 4/4 and removing 9 cysts/tumors (some schedule changes allowed this to happen earlier than originally planned), Lucy has been on a fast road to recovery.
Best news yet, she got to go home with a foster Saturday 4/6, her name is Colleen. Hal, the potential foster has another dog. There is a quarantine period of 10 days post shelter life to protect the health of the existing animal in the household, so Much Love could not release Lucy to Hal. So Colleen, who has been the guiding angel through this whole process has stepped up to foster Lucy for the 10 days.
At this point, Much Love (Krissy Goodman) is guardian to Lucy, and they would be the best to let you know – they are actively looking for a potential foster/adopter — but Hal is still interested to foster and they will re-visit after the biopsy results are in, and after seeing how Lucy does at the foster home for the 10 days. Rest easy that Lucy will rehabilitate from surgery and the channel roaming/shelter life trauma since 3/20, in the comfort of LOVE and more love from Colleen, the foster home!!! Phew, Eldad! You saved Lucy’s life providing such generous funds for her medical care! and Phew, Collen, for giving her a comfy home to recuperate in!! It is possible Lucy will continue to need medical care, which may need further funding…
Much Love Rescue rocks. Ever since they entered the picture, everthing has gone so smoothly that it makes me wonder why it couldn’t have been this easy from the beginning. They are awesome. It is a miracle that Lucy’s life did not end at the shelter with her seeing the four walls of the concrete cell.
I got to hold her today at the Vet’s – I spent a good 15 minutes with her. See pics.
