The vet called and the histology is back on the cyst. She rattled off some technical terms but the main thing is, the cyst was benign and so removal should have taken care of it.

Yeah!

Norbie seems fine today. She seems to be fluctuating with her weight but she is going up and down. Today I was home so I was able to give her treats throughout the day and she is back up. (yesterday we had family here and while I checked on her, I didn't give her treats every couple hours like today. I guess the trick is to spoil her. I also added 3rd cut timothy hay to the cage. The girls have a whole rack of Bluegrass but they all love the timothy more. Almost every time I went into the piggie room today, Norbie was eating someting.

I did notice that her incision looks dry and it looks like the scab wants to come off in places. THe vet told me to let it come off on its own so I am just leaving it alone.

Norbie enjoys her special treatment. :)

Lots of 3rd cut timothy hay has definitely raised Sakura's spirits too!

Tonight was the most Norbie has weighed in the past week!! Yippie!!

(I hope nobody is sick of me posting the weights...Its the one way I can keep track and seeing it typed out helps. I also really notice how she can fluctuate in a day)

She seems to be doing good! I would like to see her back up to her normal 1000+g but we are taking it one day at a time!

Wonderful, wonderful news!!!

I think it is very helpful to continue posting her weight chart. It does keep things in perspective and on track.

Ditto Tracis. More than one person has used a GL thread as their own record of weights, treatment, illness, progress etc. Nothing at all wrong with that.
