Post Surgery Update

Surgery found nothing.  Not a damn thing.  Her intestines were somewhat discolored and her duodenum was distended (both had biopsy samples taken), but everything checked out.  The doctor even cut into her healthy stomach just to make absolutely positive that there was nothing in there. 

The dog is now recovering at the hospital and we're hoping we get her back today.  In the mean time, I've lost a lot of faith in our doctors - they were "in a meeting" for three hours after surgery and just could not break away to call me to update me on the dog's status until after the meeting ended.  Are you freaking kidding me?  Beyond their completely oblivious bedside manner, I have this horrible feeling that I was talked into having my buddy hacked open for no damn good reason. 

So what next?  Good question.  Our current docs have no ideas, other than wait for the biopsies to come back.  And while a clear result is what we're pulling for, it will leave us with not much more we can do other than hope she gets better. 

This whole situation sucks.
