Maddy Pulls Through Surgery Beautifully!

Maddy's Last Pre-surgery PicOur Maddy went through surgery today to have her right front leg -- the leg with the large tumor -- removed, after being diagnosed a week ago with Canine Osteosarcoma. {This picture is the last picture taken of her before her surgery.}

She pulled through the surgery like a champ -- no real surprise, as she has always been a very spirited dog -- and will be coming home tomorrow. Of course, her absence these past three days has made the house very quite and almost empty feeling -- even with our three and five year old kids running around.

The wife has been on a mission to prepare the house for her, and to make a drastic change to her diet, gathering up vitamins and foods that many owner's of dogs diagnosed with cancer have found to be effective in their fight to beat the disease. It's going to be a whole new world for our Maddy when she returns home -- but hopefully a world that she will be around to enjoy for some time longer than we initially thought when she was diagnosed.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for pictures (and maybe even video) of our Maddy coming home from the hospital. Can't wait to get her back home!
