Hey It’s Jet Here.
Serious stuff today. Starting with the ending, JJ should be fine, we’ll know for sure by 9:30 a.m. **Update** – JJ and Mom just returned home. She had endometriosis and beginning pyometra. She did well in surgery, needs to be calm (hmpf) and should get back to her usual self soon. Thanks to those who already wrote in asking how JJ was doing.
As many readers know, Mom and I still rank as Newbies in the PetBlog world. We began my blog in October 2011, a few weeks after we lost Koko, Mom’s first ever K9. You helped us welcome JJ, our new golden girl in December. You even helped name her!
You may even recall that even though Animal Services told Golden Rescue South Florida JJ was that thing called spayed and GRSF told Mom the same, we had quite the surprise in February and again last Sunday.
When Linda, Storm, Thunder, Freighter and Nestle (of 2 Brown Dawgs fame) read our Mischief Monday post, Linda sent a comment back that something was wrong, to look up this big word called pyometra, and recommended that we call Dr. Shaffer. Since Mom read their comment around midnight, she called first thing Tuesday.
Judy, who runs the front desk, left Mom feeling more comfortable, but said she would pass the question on to Dr. Shaffer and let Mom know. Judy called Mom at work on Wednesday and said Dr. Shaffer tended to agree with Linda and the brown dawgs. Since JJ had NO symptoms, Mom made the appointment for first thing yesterday.
Just in case, Mom restricted food and water after midnight in case JJ needed unexpected surgery. Mom got the call at work again. Judy said they would spay JJ and check for the scary stuff during surgery. At day’s end, Judy called to say JJ did great in surgery, however, Dr. Shaffer hadn’t mentioned any further details. JJ’s having a sleepover at Dr. Shaffer’s tonight to make sure everything is ok. We already miss our cuddle bunny in bed!
Since Mom’s never had an unaltered K9, we would have never known (or for sure not as rapidly) about pyometra without Linda and the brown dawgs.
Thank you Linda, Storm, Thunder, Freighter and Nestle for saving our girl’s life and educating us. Thanks in the larger sense to our new blogging friends, we never expected such support, connection and caring.
Another great, things will be ok with JJ, day.
