Yesterday was a little rough but all in all we survived and so did Gussie. First, Mom ran and got him right after his surgery. She was a little concerned that they didn't keep him very long, but she had to trust the vet knew what she was doing. Or they thought Mom knew what she was doing....anyway mom took him home and left him with Dad. Dad called less than one hour later and said Gus was crying and breathing funny and shaking. Mom called her Boss and said she needed to go home. Her Boss doesn't have a wife, or kids, or pets, so she had to fake a headache cos ....he wouldn't understand the NEED to go home and take care of Gus.
When she got home, Dad was fretting and Gus was sleeping on the couch. Dad couldn't get his pain pill down and it had dissolved in food by that time, and Gus wouldn't take it. Gus looked pretty dopey but he did cry out alot when he moved so Mom being THE MOM proceeded to stick the pill down his throat. It took awhile but she finally got it down there. (she tried it in everything imaginable and she was afraid she would go through his pills so she had to resort to brut force which upset her greatly) Anyway she held him for a few hours on the couch while he slept.
Mom and Dad were worried since they now sleep in the other room that they wouldn't hear him if he started to hurt in the middle of the night so Dad being Dad blew up the air mattress and offered to sleep with him in the family room. (Times like that is the reason Mom loves Dad) He lasted till around 1:00 am and had to come get in bed with Mom cos the mattress was not comfortable.
When Mom got up for work this morning all three of us came running to her, Gussie included!! Mom put us outside for awhile, drank her coffee, fed us breakfast and got ready for work. Gussie was back to normal. YAY!!! Mom is gonna get him his benadryl today and try and figure out how the heck to get him to take it. Thanks for all the comments yesterday, once again blogville stepped up to show its caring and loving heart, the real world didn't even ask.
