THIS IS GOING TO BE INTERESTING...

Stewey is out of surgery and did very well, thank goodness.  They emded up removing a total of four teeth and are flushing him with antibiotics for a nasal infection.  Poor thing...I guess the extent of the problem was a lot worse than we realized.  But, I only gave myself 30 lashes instead of 40 since I did get him in right away and didn't delay getting him back for the surgery.

That has to count for something.  Right?

Now the fun part comes.  I get to pick him up at 3:30 and bring him home to his apartment for 48 hours of rest and relaxation.  He can lounge in front of thr fireplace if he wants and can even have a puppy cup, but I think he will have to forego his weekly card game and cognac night with the boys.

Can I just tell you how happy I am that he has insurance?  I'm pretty sure that this is going to be a doozie of a bill, so knowing that a portion of it will come back is comforting, indeed.

That's it for now.  Thank you for holding my hand through this!  You really have no idea how much it helped!

Woo Hoo!

  9. Delighted that it's over and everything turned out OK. You do realise that Stewey will expect you to wait on him hand and foot till New Year, at the very least!

  11. Glad things went relatively well for Stewey! We've always carried pet insurance on our dogs and it's been very useful. Two years ago we took our dog in for a teeth cleaning and she had to have 6 teeth pulled! Most of them were small ones and she still eats just fine so don't feel too bad, Stewey will probably not miss those teeth too much.

  15. Oh poor baby! I know how you feel - Oscar (our British Blue) has just had almost all his teeth out. Again I had no idea how bad his teeth were - even the vet was surprised at how many he ended up taking out! But 6 weeks later he is fine (he was fine the next day....) He had a bit injection of antibiotics for a nasal infection as well... suspect it was all related somehow!
    He is a much happier kitty now! :o)
    Hope the little man is feeling better soon
    Hugs xx

  17. Off in about 3 hours to take my two 8 and 1/2 year old Yorkie puppies for their annual check-up. I have not been able to sleep all night. It has nothing to do with you - it is all about me and my brain doing an overload. Thank you for letting me know that I and my brain are not alone out there. Kisses and Hugs to Stewey and you.
