    Ella just left to go have her surgery. My father-in-law took her in because I have to get to boys off to school and she was scheduled at a time that I couldn't take her in.

    She'll be fine and we're going to go pick her up after 3 pm. I wrote out instruction/info for the vet since I'm not 100% sure who is going to be handling her today. I left info about pre-op benadryl and her animal aggression and told them that it will stress her out to be kenneled around other dogs. They'll probably put her in the office with them while she wakes up. That's what they did when she got her teeth cleaned and her mole removed. I left them my cell number and told them to call after the surgery.

    I'm a freakin' spaz.

    Nah, just a mom. I am currently suffering panic attacks about a dental that has not even been booked yet.

    I hope all goes well and she feels better quickly.

    I hope it all goes smoothly!

    Congrats for being proactive and very detailed, I'm sure it makes it easier on them instead of having to guess and find out if they were right or wrong!

    She's back. And fine. Whiny and grumbly, but fine. She won't take any ice or water. She just wants her ball and to be near us. I don't want to give her any pain medication until she gets at least some water into her tummy. She's laying on her bed with her ball in her mouth and she is trying to hold her head up and her eyes open, but she'll be failing at that soon.

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes and prayers!

    Like I said, she won't take ice or water, but I froze a kong stuffed with only raw pieces of lamb steak and she's interested in that. I'm letting her have it because I want something in her belly so that I can give her some Rimadyl because she keeps whining at us.

    Oh Ella baby. I'm glad it all went well.


    I had a dream about Ella last night. I had a dream she was in love with Bandit but didn't liek Spanky and she would spit purple fire at him whenever he'd come around her. Weird.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Purple fire??? I wonder how much of that had to do with the purple dragons in my sig and knowledge of Ella's dog aggression, but also knowing that she gets along with one other dog?
    :D
