My wife is out of surgery and resting in her room at the hospital. All went very well. The surgeon was able to do the whole procedure using the robot, which means they made only a few small holes, so she’s expected to bounce back pretty quickly.
I’m at home for a few minutes to check on Dozer the cat. He seems to be getting a bit better. He’s still weak, but I don’t think he’s in pain. He’s been feeding himself, and he gets up and walks around a bit. If this keeps up, I’ll probably take him back to the vet to try to figure out how best to care for him.
My wife and I are now both really glad we didn’t agree to let the emergency vet euthanize him. I think the lesson here is that we should keep in mind that an emergency vet is for emergencies. As soon as they told us there was no immediate emergency, we should have just left and taken him to the regular vet the next day.
And yes, I’m a little less angry at the world.
