Re: Wish my little boy luck today!

The surgery went very well and was over very quick! Cloud seems so small right now without his huge lump. They cut out all of the tumor, although it will probably grow back :( the tumor (in all) weighed about 70 grams :shock: i got to see it, it was gross!

Cloud looks sooooo miserable right now, and he's very limp whenever i hold him. He couldnt find a comfortable spot in the carrier and at one point he fell asleep with his head in his food bowl, then he fell asleep with his nose scrunched up against the front grate of the carrier, and at one point he was sleeping verticle, with his head on the floor of the carrier (he was propped up by a hot water bottle). tehe, so cute to see but i feel so bad for him!

ok, pictures :)











tehe, he looks so cute and grumpy. all 4 feet stick up and he looks like a cartoon who is playing dead

Aww, I feel so bad for him, those stitches look pretty painful :( I wish you the best of luck and hope that he will heal well and the cancer will not come back. Was he just limp on the ride home because he had been "put asleep" for the surgery? Anyways, I don't think he would even want to curl up in a ball, that would hurt pretty bad with the stitches and possibly pull them out :?

Hope little Cloud feels better =)

I'm so sorry, Jessy... :cry: I'm sure he's much more comfortable now that he's over the bridge and free of that nasty tumor. You gave him a great life! *hugs*

I'm so very sorry to hear he didn't make it. At least he was able to feel your love and go peacefully.

What is it with hedgies and cancer? It seems so many of the posts here are about hedgies having cancer?

I haven't gotten my hedgie yet, I'll get him/her in June.

Feel better soon.

I'm sorry to see that Cloud died, but I must also say he looked like he never fully recovered from the anesthetic. I'm a little surprised that your vet sent him home while he was still that out of it. Poor sweet boy, may his journeys over the rainbow bridge be filled with lots of mealworms.
