Surgery Again

I just got to work.. I'm having a real hard time to keep tears from falling.

Gracie hurt herself last week.  My sister had come in from Annapolis, and Gracie goes crazy with surprise visitors - she jumped from the chair, ran to the door and started yelping.  I knew something was wrong.  But then she seemed to get okay, but there was swelling and bruising.  Before then, her surgical site was doing so well

Today she went to get her sutures removed.  The outside looked good, but she has a hernia.  They kept her there and she goes back in for surgery today after noon.  I'm so so so so so so sad.

  8. Thanks everyone. When I took her in this morning I had no idea I'd be leaving without her. It's been a tough couple of weeks trying to keep her from hurting herself. I know she's been getting depressed because she wants to be going for walks and enjoying life again... especially on the pretty days. I AM going to put a sign on my door... crazy as that sounds. I don't want to do this again. I just hope she does surgery okay. She has a real problem with the anesthesia...

  11. Bobbi,
    Firt happy belated b-day to Gary.
    We are so sorry to read about Gracie. Bless her little heart. It is so hard to keep the furbabies from jumping and they don't seem to understand until it it is too late. I remember each time we've have a pet spayed/neutered the Vet says don't let them jump and make sure they don't get excited. And I want to say how in the dickens can you keep a cat from jumping or a dog from getting excited.
    Big Hugs and let us know how she is doing
    Madi and Mom
