BREAKING NEWS!!! Max got a good report at the vet!

In fact, you could say our pal Max is doing swimmingly!

Here's the report from Max's loving Mum (my comments are in red!):

"We took Max to the Randridge Specialist Veterinary Centre, here in Johannesburg, today where he had a chest Xray and abdominal scan. Except for the one Mast Cell tumour, they could find nothing further in his body.Yipee!!! He also had various other tests which came up clear. Hip hip hooray! The tumour on the side of his body (the one which I photographed on the blog) is the only one they could find. Phew! We were phoned a short while ago by the surgeon, who told us that Max's surgery went extremely well. Thank dog! They removed the tumour and he is very optimistic. Well done! The wound however is deep and painful and Max will be on morphine until tomorrow morning when they will assess him again. Poor, brave fella, although Mommy gives morphine a big thumbs up! He may come home tomorrow, although I imagine he is now a 'battered' looking pooch. Nah, he's be telling everyone he fought off a herd of Cape Buffalo! I am so grateful and thankful for all the prayers and warm thoughts from across the world. The power of the paw strikes once again...

They obviously will be sending the tumour to the pathologist and we hope for a clean result on the margins of the tumour. So, its all VERY good news for today....MAX'S NEWS IS GOOD AND HE GOT THROUGH THE SURGERY VERY WELL!

Oh I am so grateful and so happy to have all these beautiful doggie-bloggie souls around the world." Ditto!

As many of you know, Max's Mom's mother passed away very recently so their family has been through a lot of heartache recently. They may not get a chance to post for a while, but asked me to share this wonderful news.

Time for some prayers of gratitude and thanksgiving. And continued comfort to Max's wonderful family.

Ahhh, I love great news on a Monday morning!
