Prayers/Positive thoughts needed for Ginger

This is big shock. Ginger had been fine until this afternoon when I could tell something was a little bit off. Feeling likie an over reacting and over protective parent I took her to the vet. Something was wrong, she has a growth on her spleen that is bleeding into her abodmen. My vet who is great is going to operate first thing in the morning. He's keeping her with him tonight to monitor her and keep her hydrated. He gave me a wide range of scenarios I am trying to focus on the positive but sure could use the power of everyone here as well. She is such as little sweetheart and my princess. It's just so fast, we had a great hike and a big game of tug of war yesterday.

Sorry, guess I should have posted this on the health board.

I'll be praying for Ginger this morning, and for a positive outcome. You are great mom, recognizing that she wasn't herself and getting her help right away.

Ginger came through the surgery fine. She is incredibly groggy and sleepy and they are keeping her on pain meds. I spent a lot of time at the vet's with her this afternoon. Dr. Ed took the spleen out and everything looked good there but he found some nodules on her liver that he is concerned about but we will wait for test results before I start to panic. I am still thibking positive thoughts. All of her bloodwork was great before surgery and she still had normal red blood cell counts even with the internal bleeding so I was very hopeful this morning. A vet tech is spending the night with her and hopfully she will be able to come home tomorrow. Paws crossed.
