    OMG, I am so trying not to catastrophize. Our dog Misha is undergoing surgery tomorrow to remove a tumor underneath her eyelid. It has to be done. She did well with laser surgery on the same area last year; this time, it's the knife. And she's 15 years old. I'm so worried. The vet is confident and I feel as much trust in our vet as possible for me. But I'm still worried. Misha's been with me for a long, long time, almost as long as I've been on my own as an adult, really. She's been my guardian angel and she has seen me through so much. I just want her to get through this and have another few comfortable years with us. She's a truly special soul.

    I would so much appreciate prayers and good thoughts for her successful surgery and recovery.

    Hodge,

    Sending wishes that your Misha comes through the surgery easily. It's so tough when it's someone we love (no matter if they're furry or not) has to go through something like this and all we can do is wait.

    I'll be thinking of you and your loving furbaby all day, Hodge! Let us all know when you find out from the vet how your Darling did in the surgery. All of us with furchildren understand how your anxiety.

    Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts, everyone. Misha came through fine! Whew!!! The vet was amazed at how well she was recovering for her age. Turns out the vet removed two tumors from one eye and one from the other. Now Misha has to wear this plastic barrier thing around her neck for the next few days so she can't rub anything against her eyes; they must itch really badly. Anyway, thank God I'm not working, because I need to keep a close eye on her for the next few days. She's already managed to get the plastic thing off a couple times, so I'm sleeping near her on the couch tonight and hoping I'll wake up if she manages it again. Yes, Bec, I have to admit, though, self-care got a lot easier once we got her safely home:)
