A longish but good update: Wizard’s surgery went well. He’s swollen, sore and surprised He’s had this surgery before about five or six years ago, and he keeps saying it hurts more this time. I don’t think it does, though. He just has a tendency to not remember the pain. Plus this time, they kept him more awake (but in no pain) during the procedure so he’s less groggy. However once I showed him a picture of the swelling, that triggered his memory the last time. I found that interesting.
This kind of selective memory is how women have more than one child, LOL!
Is it making fun of Wizard to tell you all that he looks like he got in the ring with Mike Tyson So when they brought him out to the car, they had ice on his eyes so they were covered. I didn’t get a look at him until I was driving and he took the ice off for a minute — it’s a good thing I knew what to expect, and even so, I winced in sympathy. But aside from that first second of shock, it looks like it should.
I’m dead tired (as I’m writing this yesterday afternoon), but glad to have it all done, although I don’t love him having discomfort now and he’s only supposed to take Tylenol. It will be worth it though assuming the surgery works as intended. It’s a really cool procedure that helps Wizard keep his eyelids open enough to have a bigger field of vision. It worked before and we expect it to work again.
Maggie is in boarding for another night. I was going to pick her up, but the new owner of the place called and asked if she could stay another night, then she’d give her a bath and cut her nails in the morning. I asked how Maggie was doing there, and she said she’s made friends with two bulldogs, so I agreed. This actually makes it easier on me so I can do quick errands, take care of Wizard and not worry about her accidently tripping him this first 24 hours after the surgery. I also have to run to a doctor appointment tomorrow morning, then I’ll pick her up. But gosh, we miss her! However I’m happy she’s having fun with some doggy friends.
So that’s my update. All is well so far. How’s your day going?
