And I thought: What better way than to take some snaps and share them for BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday? So here we go.
Before surgery, Sinead's mast cell tumor was about 4mm tall, and it was right above her left eye. It was removed during surgery, and chemo was applied to the surgery scar.
We were told to expect some swelling and perhaps a touch of hair loss as she recovered. This is how the spot looks right now. It's super smooth, and while there's a touch of hair missing, it's not an obvious amount of hair loss.
I'm pulling up on her skin in this photo just a little bit, in order to expose that site a little better. But clearly, the whole spot looks pretty darn good. (And now, that's not Photoshop. Her head really is that small.)
Sinead has retained the ability to blink, and her eye doesn't seem uncomfortable at all. She also hasn't ever felt the need to itch or scratch since the procedure was done.
I'll need to keep watch on that spot, just to make sure that things don't go south. But for now, I'd like to thank the team. I'd never even heard of electrochemotherapy before, and I'm so thankful that both of our doctors told us about this option and encouraged us to consider it.
I don't know that Sinead would look this great right now without their hard work.
