It looks like Lady will be seeing the vet briefly sometime tomorrow so that he can get a look at her tongue. Depending on what he finds, she may get a feeding tube inserted the next day, to be used until she heals. The vet will also take a biopsy at the same time.
That’s the plan as of now.
In more immediate news, Lady just put away some chicken broth with great enthusiasm. Eating is still painful for her, but she still has an appetite and she can drink. Those are good signs.
