And we have pictures. NO! Not pictures of THAT!!! Just pictures of what they will look like for the next ten days!
Max stopped in the kitchen for a photo. Look! No more "Cherry Eye"!!
From the side this shows what he has to look like for a few days.
With Max on the bed, Joey came to check how he was doing.
Both boys on the bed with 1/2 of Ali!
Sammy is doing well, but he is definitely more indignant about the collar than Max is.
Max started up the stairs, and I reminded him he can't do stairs for a few days!
Max and Ali resting on the bed.
It has been a hard day, and it is good to be home. The boys are on ice chips for the evening, That is probably not going to go over well with them, but it must be. Tomorrow, they can begin to eat and drink. They don't seem to be hurting at all, at least not yet.
The bill for "the works" ...... $729. g.u.l.p!! But we are done, everyone is shot up, pared down, and scraped off. We have medication to use for a while, but then it should be smooth sailing! I'm so glad we can now move on.
Joey was checked out this morning. He weighs 14.2 lbs., is estimated to be six years old (the vet in OK said 3, but I thought he was a little older), and is very good health. The bow of his front legs is exaggerated, and I've noticed he limps a tad when he trots. It is possible that he will develop some joint disease (if it isn't already there), but generally Doc is not really too worried about it at this point. I have them all on the Science Diet formula for joints anyway. His teeth will need cleaned, but it isn't urgent, so we will recuperate from today's bill before that happens!
Everyone is resting now. In fact, Mr. Sam is on my pillow, so I need to get out a fresh pillow case for tonight, but all is well. And Mom is having a little mojito!! ahhhhhhhhhhh.
