Thanks for all the well wishes guys, and I'm sorry about taking so long to get back on here, but I've been going back and forth to the barn every couple of hours.
Her surgery went well. When he looked at it before he operated, he thought he would be able to peel back the skin from the tumor to have more to sew together. When he got into it though, he had to take skin and all; and it did have blood vessels. Rosie did really really well though. He was able to get her down on the side that she needed to be on, and I found out that she snores rather loudly when she's sleeping...LOL. He had just finished sewing her up when she started coming out of the anesthesia. I have to give her bute twice a day; put antibiotic powder on it twice a day; and give her antibiotic in her evening feed.
I've taken her on 3 real short walks today...Maybe 50 feet out of the barn. The first time was about 75, and it started seeping so I knocked it down the last couple of times. She is REALLY enjoying the grass and sun when I take her out of her stall though. Poor Rook just stands outside the barn right by her stall.
Here are the before and one after picture:
