The Lump: Part 5 - Post-Surgery

Maggie had her surgery, a hemithyroidectomy, this morning and the vet said everything went very well! I went up to visit her after work today. She was still a little bedraggled-looking and seemed like she was still trying to figure out what the heck had just happened to her, but she was bright and alert. 

No, nothing is wrong with the camera - yes, half her cheek is shaved.
Feeling good enough to eat fancy carrots from the farm stand. Nom.
The OR.
Closeup of the stint. 
They'll check Monday morning and see if the stint can come out then. If so, then she can come home that day! The removed thyroid lobe had been sent off the a lab for histopathology and we'll get results from that sometime next week,
