Mom ran back to her closet to put on some clothes. She was in such a hurry that she put her shirt on inside out and backwards BOL! and her pants were inside out. She didn't notice at all! She scooped the little guy up and off to the vet she went. BTW, she was not worried about offending my sensitive feelings by including me, she just took the little guy and left me here ALL BY MYSELF!
Now - this is hearsay as I was not there to observe - but she ran into the vet screaming "I have an emergency, I have an emergency!" Our vetty's being the professional, kind and caring kind took the little guy back IMMEDIATELY. Dr. Watson said a suture had popped and the blood in the sack was leaking. She told mommy this wasn't necessarily a bad thing but she felt like he needed more surgery to find out what was really going on with that sack. We don't have any pictures of this day.
When mommy brought him home he was pretty stressed from all the poking. They had tried to super glue him until Monday but it wouldn't hold because of all the blood. So, mommy put him in his bed and obsessed over him. This was the position he was in for all of Saturday and Sunday.
First thing Monday morning Mommy and Daddy took him back to the vetty!
Dr. Watson took a look at his nethers. She said the bruising looked better but he was still bleeding.
She took an even closer look to further degrade the little guy I'm sure! She felt that she needed to get "in there" to see what was going on!
The little guy gave mom a look that said HELP ME!!!!
Mom and Dad left the little guy for some surgeries! Dr. Watson called a couple of hours later to tell them he was out of surgery and doing fine! She said they found several blood clots and got him all cleaned up in there. Mom should pick him up around 5:00
He was a little goofy because they had given him morphine, which I understand is pretty powerful stuff. He wasn't sure whether to sit or stand! But he was in good paws because, as you can see, I'm checking out the area to make sure they did a good job! For some reason Mom wanted me to stop!
after sitting in mommy's lap for over an hour he zonked in his bed [err that's MY BED] He pretty much didn't move all night - except for mommy moving him into their bedroom because the little rat can't be more than 5 feet from mommy whether he is awake or asleep - or else he gets up looking for her and he is TOO STONED to find her so he just sits there looking weird.
This was this morning after sitting on the ice for a while - we all thought this was a pretty cute position for him. Now he's back in the cone and back to sleep.
Please keep paws crossed that this time he gets well.
Oh - and TANK - we're trying the new dynamic template - we're not sure we like it! Does anybody like it?
