Pofi: Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor Amputation

Just popping in to say....

Just popping in to say….

Our surgeon called with the most excellent news.  Sometimes a bump is just a bump. It was still benign and it is fully excised to boot!  And speaking of boots, that means when he is healed up in another 10 days or so,  Pofi can get measured for a Therapaws carpal brace to help keep his front leg in good shape.

Thanks for all your good thoughts – we really appreciate it!

Oh, hai! Did you hear my good news?

    SOOO happy for you guys! If anyone deserves great news it’s Pofi! And I’m glad, for once, it was a horse and not a zebra! We’re all doing the happy dance for you.

      Thank you so much, Karen! It is a good report indeed. I was so shocked when the surgeon called – I thought it was just a post op care call as it it was really, really fast, so I was just startled and delighted! Will definitely share about the brace – I saw it in use by a Tripawd Greyhound in an FB group and her person says it has been great. They have actually worn one out and replaced it, because she wears it daily and really bombs around in it.
