Hello my name is Raymond and I am a 5 year old Great Dane with osteosarcoma

Hi I am Raymond – but all of my friends call me Ray Ray, I am a five year old Great Dane who had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma just two weeks ago. My doctors told me that I needed to have my leg amputated so I would not be in pain. My parents were horrified with this prognosis. So they did tons of research and thanks to Tripawds, they learned so much about Moose and Nova, that it helped  them decide to be brave and set up my surgery as soon as possible. As of this morning I was taken to Fox Creek Veterinary  clinic  in Wildwood, MO to meet with my doctors and go through a three hour surgery to have my right front leg removed.  I know that my parents are worried sick about me, but I am in very good hands. the doctors called them and told them that the surgery went very well and I am on very good pain medication and receiving lots of hugs & love from everyone around me. If all goes well, I get to come home tomorrow morning.  My parents have brought home two twin size mattresses to lay on the floor, gated the stairs, have a ramp for me to get in and out of the car and even covered the kitchen floor with carpet, so I don’t have a chance of slipping. I know that my baby brother Rosco (4 year old great dane ) & my older brother (Dexter- 14 year old aussie mix) & of course my 7 year old Lab “girlfriend” Lucy all miss me and seem so very depressed that I am not home yet. But I will get to see them all very soon and I will no longer have that horrible pain in my leg and will soon be able to play with them all again.

I will let everyone know how it is going when I get home-
