We saw the surgeon today for the last recheck, and it all went well. Korkie is healing up nicely, and the stitches can come out on Friday. They did another laser treatment on her incision site and another one on Friday.

The other day she started to perk up and play with her toys and get super excited about food again. So I am hopeful.

As for cancer – we go back in 3 months for X-rays to see if it has spread and a rectal exam to make sure another mass hasn’t formed. So, for now, it is life as usual with lots of extra hugs and cuddles. I don’t know how much longer I have my girl for. Could be months, could be years. But I know that as long as she is comfortable and happy, I will do what it takes to keep her that way.
