The world looks different at 2:30 am

Last night, Suze came home after having several lumps removed. At about $100 per stitch, I was left confused about who the Rimadyl was for. Suze was groggy last night and having many accidents while apparently trying to come off the anesthesia.

Twitching all night, I stayed up with her trying to find her a comfy spot and then around 2:30 her leg started twitching erratically. After a few minutes of this, I decided to run to MedVet in Worthington. By the time we got there, she was just peachy. Skipping out of the car and trotting to the door. At $112/visit, I made the call to postpone the ER and went home.

Both of us more awake and feeling better, we stopped at Tim Horton's for a decaf and timbits. Not the usual surly staff; I drove up, said good morning and the guy at the window said "what?" I said good morning and he laughed and said "That's the spirit." Suze woofed down half a timbit with joy. We left to go home. Pulling onto High Street, we saw several screaming lads hanging out a car sceaming to everyone that happened to be around. They were probably going to die or be arrested soon, but they looked like they were having fun. I'm glad we drove waaay behind them. On the homestretch we saw a police officer sitting on the side of the road looking for speeders - or asleep. I'm really tired and Suze is sleeping soundly.

Glad to hear the long night ended happily with a timbit!

She's healing well, but is really irritated. She has a collar on that looks like she's trying to stretch her neck. It was quite a surgery. I can't wait until she gets the collar off.
