Here is the statement from Mike Portnoy:

“Mickey made it through his surgery and is back home and recovering!!!!! 🙏😇
We were VERY concerned about today as he is so small and has liver issues which can be an issue with the anesthesia… But he made it through like a champ! 🐶🐾 Now we have to patiently wait a few days for the results of the tumor…

If it’s Stage 1 and they got everything, then he should be OK… If it’s Stage 2 or 3, we’ll have to do chemo 😔 Fingers crossed 🤞 1 step at a time… We are just relieved for now that he woke up from the surgery is home with us! (Pretty beat up but hanging in there…)”

He continued:

“THANK YOU ALL for your prayers and support these last few days… They have meant THE WORLD to us and helped give us (and our little guy) so much strength and hope!!!

🙏 Not everybody understands the love and bond we have with our pets, but it seems ALOT of you do!!! So thanks again…💘 Time for the little guy to rest up and get lots of love and cuddles… @mickey_portnoy #thatsmymickey”
