A Perci Scare

A happier moment last week when we picked up the furry sisters from Mrs. Jeannie's and Mr. Ron's cabin in the woods...They love to be country pooches for awhile when we go on trips. We are so thankful that Jeannie, Ron, and their granddaughter are okay after their auto accident. They are extremely wonderful people who make the world a better place!!!

I really don't want to think about the outcome, if our vet had not had state of the art monitoring equipment during surgical procedures. But, to make a long story short, Perci did not have her surgery today on her leg. Her little body couldn't handle being put under with the normal procedure, so both her heart rate and temperature dropped too low too quickly. They can take other measures if and when we want to try this again. We are going to wait awhile and see how she does. She is still really out of it, even at this hour. The kids are worried that all she is doing is sleeping, and Sophie is worried so much that she paces in front of her and gently licks her on the ear occasionally. Dr. S. said that she would sleep much of the day/night, but she should be more spry and awake by in the morning. All I know is that anesthetic really did a number on her, and I feel to blame for putting her through all this.

Yep, I can't help it. Even if she is of the four-legged variety, she is one of my babies! Please say a prayer that she recovers by tomorrow and that we can make the right decision for her in the future.

I hope that tomorrow is a better day for all of us...

As a dog owner and lover, I empathize completely. Wishing for a complete recovery. This must be so frightening.
