The tumor-specialist veterinarian was very optimistic about Hanna, and as a result, we're taking her in for more surgery tomorrow. The Vet wants to clean out some additional tissue in the area, including the adjacent lymph node. While I don't want to keep cutting the poor dog up, given the Vet's optimistic prognosis, we're going forward with the surgery. She'll stay at the hospital for a couple of days, so that they can keep her properly doped up and comfortable.

While we all feel empathy for Hanna, it may be Samantha Jane Noodles who is suffering the most through all this. I left her with my brother yesterday while Hanna and I went to the Vet's, and she was DEVASTATED by being so cruelly left behind. When we returned about 3 hours later she was greatly relieved and ecstatic to have her big sister back at home with her.

And my community service for the day, is to share the best Carrot Cake Recipe - ever. Super moist, and really, really good. If you like carrot cake, so give it a try!
And for anyone who watches Mad Men - Peggy's sister sucks for ratting her out to the priest, and I'm glad Betty isn't my mom!

Wow, that is very hopeful news for Hanna and I hope it only gets better for her. Poor Samantha, I was wondering how your other doggie was doing with all of this. Give her lots of treats too, she needs them also!

I LOVE carrot cake.

I'm glad to hear that they are optimistic! I've been thinking about you and your dogs!!!

When I separate my cats, they get really sad...that's why I had to have full custody of all of them! =)

Glad to hear Hanna's prognosis is good. We'll have to get she and Wally together once she's feeling better for a romp at the beach.

Ditto on Mad Men. WTF is wrong with her sister??

Best wishes to Hanna for a speedy recovery. Maybe the vet will give you some doggy Valium for Samantha to get through 'til Friday when her sister comes home?

Isn't Betty a fucking bitch? And I sincerely hope Peggy doesn't do sexy time with the priest. Sally Draper is turning into the break-out star of season two. She's hysterical and getting all the best lines.

Im very happy to hear that Hanna had good news. I hope that everything goes well and her surgery is just another battle scar for her.

Um, did Don and Betty seriously get into a shoving match? Like they were 4 years old? Wow. Peggy's sister is awful.
