Testing times.......

I've been doing my best to keep busy today so that I don't think about tomorrow and Small Dog's operation.  She is now nil by mouth and can only have water, which means she won't be able to have her bowl of dog biscuits down in the kitchen for her midnight snack.

We're all due a very early night tonight as we have an early start in the morning so Small Dog will be especially disgruntled as she's not a 'morning dog'.  

After we've dropped her off we'll be coming back home and will try to keep ourselves occupied while we await the phone call to let us know that she's in recovery and is OK.  After that there will be another few hours to wait before we can go and collect her to bring her home for lots of pampering (and painkillers).

I'm really NOT looking forward to tomorrow at all.... just thinking about it gives me a big lump in my chest.  However, after the first day or so, she will gradually return to something more like herself and we'll be able to relax a bit.

Hopefully.

Medical bulletins will be posted throughout the day......

Sending you both and Small Dog lots of love for tomorrow. She will be fine I am sure.
When our Henry had his unmentionables off he was zipping round the garden the next day stitches and all. They are very resilient creatures, dogs.

It's so difficult; I am so sympathetic to what you are going through. I have spent years giving small cat and large dogs insulin shots, and pills (with cats that's a whole other story); and waiting for surgical results. I send all of my best wishes and good thoughts to Small Dog and you.
