aww i knwo how you feel i took the day off from work when bam went for his back in october, i just wanted to be around in case anything happened even though my mom was home. he is scared of going ot the vet to begin wtih so when i went to pick him up he was really scared and lethargic but super happy to see me. bam was actually only groggy for a couple hours when we got home and he was back to his happy self the next day. it's a fairly simple procedure - my friend in vet school assured me so! give us an update when you can!
