Well, after a long and extremely emotional day, we are home!
When we dropped Bailey off this morning I was in tears, as they took him into the back room, he whined for me and I just lost it! I cried all the way home, then once we got here, it was too much for me to be here looking at his stuff and knowing he was in surgery. So hubby took me out for an attempt at lunch, which I couldn't even eat and the smell made me dry heave! So then we walked the mall and spent some time just out and about. It helped quite a bit not being home with all of his stuff and no puppy kisses!
Anyway, he weighs 3.5 pounds and is healthy! With my roof problems, I just couldn't afford the teeth today and he might not even need them removed at this point. We will have to wait for the chipping. He is a bit groggy right now and sleeping on my chest. He is whining a lot, but they gave him a pain shot before we came to get him... so I don't think he is in too much pain. He sounds congested, which worries me! He also won't keep his tongue in his mouth, but I started dipping my finger in water and he slowly licked it off. He is coming around a bit and now drinks little bits.
I just gave him a little bit of cottage cheese, I don't think they fed him!!!! We brought a little baggy of his Wellness and told them we wanted him fed as soon as he could be... but I think they removed a few kibbles and didn't actually feed him! I don't know for sure though. GRR!!! He really enjoyed that and got really mad at me when I took it away after he gobbled down a couple bites. I don't want him to get sick, so I will offer him more in about 20 minutes.
Anyway, he is home and safe and now begins the healing! I plan to hold him as long as he needs me tonight.
I still feel guilty for having this done, but I know it was for the best!
Here are some pics... sorry about the graphic ones... but can anyone tell me if it looks "ok"? Did your dogs look like that???
