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!
