When K had his Surgery he couldn't be left alone for a couple weeks. Luckily I work at home - but on occasion I DO have to leave! Pete would come home for lunch and carry K up and down the stairs, and my brother and mom would come over and watch him if I had a meeting or had to leave to teach.
THEN yesterday - a month to the day of Kaleb's surgery, Jane went in to have ONE small broken toofer removed, but the dental X-rays showed a broken moler on the bottom - half the tooth was GONE, but you couldn't see it just by looking as it was behind the tooth. She had Dental X-rays a year ago for her other tooth that needed to be removed, so this had to have happened in the last 12 months. This tooth had the pulp exposed and was starting to abcess. Poor Janer! They also removed another one that was loose and started to have a rotted root - I said "take 'em out!", she also had a skin tag removed from her face while she was out. I am thankful that little toofer we took her in for was just hanging by skin and a bit of root - it pulled right out. We would not have ever known those other teeth were causing a problem if that little one hadn't broken. Hopefully we have prolonged her life by having those removed. I expect her to live to the year 2020. :) Our Vets are amazing and take such good care of her. She was so groggy and unhappy last night, but I hope in the next day she will bounce back. She is on medication and has to eat wet food for 2 weeks. I am glad she is OK.
Then I had to teach last night, and I couldn't leave Jane - so mum to the rescue! She stayed with K and Jane while I taught and trained. And then there is Pete - he weed-wacked the ENTIRE Agility field for 2.5 hours, really, what a guy! I was relieved when he didn't show up in his speedo as he threatened it :)
I am a lucky girl. Not a lot to complain about these days - a loving family and THREE wonderful, hopefully healthy-for-a-longtime dogs.
