Default Max recuperating

I've discussed Max's American Field/US Complete field trial and hunting exploits here before, but recently he's been diagnosed with cancer. He had a Lipoma on his knee which when removed and biopsied turned out to be a low garden mass cell tumor. Following this knee surgery a more thorough ultrasound showed he had a small nodule on his spleen so he underwent a splenectomy to remove it, the knee area was also reopened to remove margin tissue around the original infected area and take liver samples as a precaution, all to be biopsied. After the 3rd day of recuperating he was ready to go back out to the field, but he's only been leash walked since his operation. Hopefully we'll have the biopsy report from the splenectomy and liver by the end of the week. All in all, he's feeling really good, and though he won't field trial this fall he'll be ready to hunt the north woods come October.

PS - If you have a very active dog like Max, it sure helps to have canine health insurance to help cover the bills. His policy pays better than mine.

I'm glad to see he's feeling well. I hope nothing but the best for you both.
