So yesterday the doc called to tell us what the surgeon he consulted had to say about my xray. He agreed with Dr.B that it really looks like an hematoma (they dont think anymore it is a problem with sutures, which means no surgery! woot!) and that to help with it (and make sure that is exactly what it is) Dr.B should stick a needle in it. So the peeps packed me up in the carrier (AGAIN!) and off we went back to the vets. The doc & my peeps all agreed that the hematoma had gotten bigger.

The doc and a vet tech took me into the back and stuck a giant needle in my hematoma to suck out all the stuff inside it. Super gross right!? The end result really surprised the doc. There was so much! The good thing is that with sucking that out, my tummy is almost back to normal! There is still a small lump but it should go away soon. The doctor said that my body could have absorbed it all but this way we know for sure what it was & things can move along faster. They also gave me some antibiotics because there is a small chance of infection.

Well fingers crossed this is the last time I have to go to the vets for a while! Thanks to all my pals for the positive thoughts!
