Hi everyone, it's me Buddy. Yesterday was not a good day at all. I went to the Vet to be "fixed" (even though I was not broken!) and to get my first shots, micro-chipped and a skin tag taken off my lip. All went well with all that but what didn't go well is I had great difficulty coming out of the anesthesia. The vet was worried when Mom and Dad showed up at 4 as they were told to and said he did not like how I was doing but wanted me to come home to be with Mom knowing I would not be as frightened. He gave her and Dad his cell number and said he was only minutes from the hospital if I needed him.
On the ride home Mom was kissing my ears and they moved slightly at her voice but my eyes and mouth tightly closed. I came home and I slept and I slept and did try a wee bit to wake when George and Caroline were barking with the dog next door.
About 9 o'clock with Mom working on waking me every 15 minutes or so, Mom got the bright idea to get a small piece of hot dog which I'd do most anything for and hold it in front of me. I woke up for that some and ate it and ate a little bit of dog food, then wanted to go outside and go potty. I then slept until 1 (it was a peaceful sleep) then woke right up needing a drink and to go pp again. Boy was my Mom ever relieved, she was so frightened.
What the doctor said is he believes I may have a small liver causing me to take a long time processing the anesthesia. He said lots of times things like this does not show up until a surgery. All Mom knows is she will be extra vigilant and will not let me go under anesthesia unless extreme emergency. Also she will talk to the vet about alternative anesthesias.
Today I am back to normal other than it feels like my hind in was hit by a Mack truck. Mom is spoiling me up really good and George and Caroline are being extra careful around me.
Yesterday was a long, long day for my Mom and Dad.
I know how frightening this was for your mom. I was so worried for you too! I barely slept last night waiting to see this morning what Georgie had to say how you were doing. Im so glad that it turned out better today xoxox We love you and sure were praying for you sweetie.
Love Merry and Mom too
Thank you so much for your prayers Merry and Mom..I'm so much better today. I love you too!
Love Buddy xoxo
