We're home!

Ok, we're home! Kelsey slept almost all of the 8 hour drive. He got out and went potty once for us but other than that, he slept (which is what he needed to be doing).

The surgeon's report says that "The mass grossly appeared to be completely excised." So, we're hoping that in four days or so we'll find out there were clean margins so we don't have to go back out to Colorado for radiation.

He's sleeping like an angel on his puppy bed and I'm just so thankful that he's here. I want to share a few pictures with you. One of them is of Dr. Ramesh Sivacolundhu (Dr. Siva is what he's called at the hospital). He was so kind and let me ask a million questions and spent almost 2 hours with us for a consultation. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon to be taking care of my sweet boy.

There are a couple of pictures of Kelsey, sans tail. Looks bad now, but I know that it will heal and he's just more special to me. He fought the fight with me and I'm so happy to have him here. However, I guess I can't say he's "bright eyed and bushy tailed" anymore. HA

One of the pictures is of my new tattoo. I hope you can all see the blue in the lettering. It was chosen by Holly's mom because Kelsey's eyes are such a beautiful blue.

My favorite picture is of Kelsey and I together. I got on the bed beside him in the hotel Friday morning before the consult. Right when I went to snap the picture, he licked my face (I LOVE HIS KISSES!). Anyway, it's a picture that I will hold near and dear for the rest of my days. He really is my sweet angel and I love him so much.

Thank you all again for all of the kind words and prayers. We just have to get past this last test of the tissue and then we can finally breathe again.
My best to all of you!

Welcome home, Kelsey. Paws crossed for the final hurdle. And think of all of the tales to tell instead of the tail. hah!

P.S. - Love Khyra's comment - spirit in the heart, not the tail.
