Mentally preparing myself [View all]

Lily has a tumor on her side. Yes it is cancerous. No idea what will happen since Friday they are removing it. I'm honestly afraid because last time we had one of our dogs go in for life saving surgery, he died two days later. I can't do this again. If she dies, I'm gonna not be able to function properly again.

I keep reading that they survive 95% of the time, but know the dark cloud we have over us on the constant the other 5% is going to get us. I can't go through this again.
