Puppy prayers for Sophie, please.
Sophie is spending the night in the ICU at The Ohio State Univeristy Veterinary Hospital following a needle biopsy of a mass in her lung. During the process she developed a pneumothorax, meaning that air escaped her lung and entered her chest cavity. They have aspirated the air from her chest twice, and I am told that she is resting comfortably, but they would like to keep her overnight for observation. As much as I hate the idea of her staying overnight, I think it's a good idea. Otherwise, I would probably hover over her all night long to monitor her breathing. The pneumothorax is just the beginning of the story, as we are also waiting to hear more about the mass that was biopsied. It can't be good news, but there is some news that would be worse than other news, so we are still hopeful. Please be hopeful with us, and if you're reading this, consider whispering a little prayer that she gets to come home soon. Thanks.
