Ruby's Home!

That's right ~ I'm home!

I'm gonna go sleeps now.....can you tells everyone my horrible ordeal?

Yes ma'am!

Ruby ate a little last night, so she was cleared to come home.

When I went to pick her up and got ALL the instructions (TWO pages! yikes!)
I wasn't quite ready for the incision I saw ~


oh boy.

They had to take out her whole left mammary duct 'system', plus the uterus.

She has a fentanyl patch for the pain, which seems to be working well without totally knocking her out.

She is eating her freeze dried chicken, but not much else at this point, but that is okay. She is drinking plenty of water too.

She is resting comfortably with an inflatable collar on.
She doesn't seem to have much interest in the incision right now, but I also have  a soft e-collar if I need to switch it out.

Keep the POTP coming!

It's going to be a long road,  but I count my blessings that she is one tough AireGirl!

Please forgive us if we don't comment for a while ~ I have a feeling Ruby's going to keep me quite busy for the next week or two!

I will keep you updated on her progress.

Thank you all so much! I hears Jimmy Hendrix's Purple Haze??


  1. That was a huge operation! Just rest now, enjoy your freeze-dried chicken and get well, girl. POTP still coming your way. And hugs.

  20. Hey Ruby,
    Great to see you're home. Now you just be a good Aire-girl and don't worry at that big incision, and try to make things easier for you mom, OK?

  21. YAY!!!! We hope Ruby's recuperation goes very smoothly for her AND for YOU!!! Mom remembers when Phantom was cut from stem to stern too for his tumor removal. It was one hideous wound. Ruby is strong and will do well - we just know it. Hugs all around for everyone.
