I took Donovan to the vet yesterday to have the drainage tube taken out. The vet told me the tumor was a grade one, which is the "best" we could hope for. Donovan still has to go to the oncologist, probably because even though she didn't tell me so, the vet probably didn't get clean margins. That means the removed tissue had no evidence of cancer - if it's clean. So probably Donovan will need some radiation. Though maybe not. The oncologist has not called me back to schedule Donovan sooner. We have an appointment for August 5th. Time and two tests will tell. Of course we may get out to the oncologist only to be told not to worry.
Donovan is healing well from the surgery. All your prayers and good thoughts are working. Please keep them up. We haven't been to the oncologist yet!
