Surgery Complete and Successful!

As promised, the skillful surgeon called at 3:40 this afternoon to say the surgery went very well, that Angus was doing well, and to give particulars about his condition that were all very good news. We couldn't be more relived than we are at the moment knowing that Angus will be OK.

I also received another call from the vet student, Julie, to give me a new update since Angus was coming out of the anesthesia. Still groggy but responding to his name, he was bundled in a couple of fleece blankets and hooked up to an IV with morphine type drugs. Poor wee Angus. We have a long road ahead of us, but I'm encouraged by the apparent ease of the operation and his good overall health. Let the healing begin.

Thank you everyone for the lovely and encouraging emails and comments. You have no idea how much that means to me to hear your thoughtful words of encouragement.

So happy for you and Angus. I'm sure he'll get all the tender loving care from you that he'll require in order to make a full recovery.
Best Wishes.

(We have 4 dog children here, one of them had bladder surgery last summmer - bladder stones! - I was thinking of making pendants from them, but my husband wouldn't let me).
