    I worked night shift last night, so I had to sleep part of the day today. This morning I saw Lola for a few minutes and then TJ had to take her to the vets because today was her spay appointment. When I woke up we tried to call the vet to see how she was doing and we got the voice mail because apparently they close the office during surgery hours which was from 1pm to 3pm today. So... we didn't get to find out anything about her.

    Well, we had to leave the house shortly after we tried to call to get an update on her for an afternoon appointment I had which ran us very late. By the time we got done with the appointment... the vet was closed :(. And they're closed tomorrow and we can't pick her up until Friday morning. I am going out of my mind not knowing how she's doing.

    I'm trying to convince myself that no news is good news. I bet she's so terrified and in pain and the thought of that just kills me. I wish I could have gotten through to someone to at least know she made it through the surgery okay and that she's resting comfortably. It's going to be a long two days.

    Wow that's so weird that you can't even call them :( I'm sure she's fine and probably sleeping too much to care :)

    My vet doesn't call either... It's routine enough for them I guess.

    I'm sure she's fine. And I'm glad she's getting spayed. Update us the second you get news, okay?

    waaahhhh... poor Lola is probably alone in a cold kennel in pain and scared. My heart is just breaking thinking about the poor girl. I'm sure she is so confused as to what has happened to her and why we're not with her. It makes me so sad.. waahhh.

    I know they have people checking in on the animals at the vets office today...even though they're closed today. I just wish we could get them to pick up the phone just for a second... so they can let us know she's okay. I hope she had a good night and wasn't in too much pain. I can't wait to get her home tomorrow morning. I miss her terribly :( And Boomer has no idea what to do with himself with her gone. I think he's sad and lost without her. It's going to be hard to keep them seperated while she heals. I guess she's going to have to stay in her kennel. I'll make a nice soft bed in it for her. And we'll just be sure to leash walk her until she's done healing.

    Only suggesting because I know how worried you are (I get that way too). Do they have an emergency number you can call and explain to them that you just want to check on her because you are very worried?

    That just sucks, Nancy. If my Vet pulled that... I would be leaving some unpleasant messages, and giving them a piece of my mind when I went to pick her up. D= That is just inconsiderate! My Vet called during Fozzie's neuter, right after, and then the next morning.

    I hope Lola is ok. I'm sure she's on plenty of meds, and pretty drowsy, so she probably isn't too scared. I hope she feels better soon.

    TJ is on his way to go pick Lola up from the vet.... woo hoo. They said that she was a bit shy yesterday the day after her surgery and didn't interact with anyone. She was probably scared and sore as heck. But this morning when they got there and let her out.... Lola was all excited and wagging her tail and licking the girl from one end of her face to the other and was loving all over her....lol. I can't wait for her to get home! Now we have to try and keep her quiet for a week, that is going to be a challenge. I'm so glad she did okay, that's a load off my mind.

    She did really well with the surgery. She doesn't even act like she's had surgery. She hasn't even as much as whimperd in pain. She's rolling over and wanting her belly rubbed and cuddling with me on the couch. She is just so dang cute. I'm so glad she's okay.
