I am happy to be able to tell you that Pup made it through his surgery today with no complications and actually, in less time than was expected.
The Taxi came on time this morning, we were of course, already standing out there waiting .. the people at the hospital were great.
I can't say enough good about them. They all spoke some English, more than enough for us to know exactly what was going on at all times.
There were no surprises , unless you count his being finished earlier than they expected.
He had nothing else to worry about in there with his spleen which is now gone and he woke up nicely after he came out of his sleep.
He just opened his eyes and looked at me.
The vet said that some dogs will be so frightened and upset when they arrive at the vets, that they are so agitated that when they wake up, they wake up frightened and screaming.
Pup just opened his eyes and looked at me...which is how he went to sleep.
We stayed there for at least another hour while he warmed up and was checked every few minutes. We had 3 doctors working on him and checking on him.
And two of the most fabulous huge German Shepherds watching over the hospital while we were busy.
The taxi ride home was fast and easy with a sweet driver asking if Pup was okay and being really good about getting to the curb so we would be able to lift Pup out easily.
I guess the next few days will be mostly rest, take a pill ( 6 altogether) , rest, eat, rest, walk to the park, rest.
I will be sure to do it all with him so he is not lonely, I like the eat and rest parts the best.
Thank you all for your sweet emails and comments .
After this short intermission, we will be out in the streets of Buenos Aires again and will have lots of good stuff to talk about.
My computer is still crashed and I feel horrible at the thought of all the photos on that computer that might not be saved. Monday my computer Wizard will be here.. cross your fingers ~
