AHEM. While I am lounging in luxury on Aire Ruby's Anniversary Tour, Muzzer has promised to post some post surgery pictures for the ghoulish among us.
The first shot is of my little leggy. They shaved some hair so they could put a needle in there with a tubey thing in it. Then cold stuff came into my tiny doggy body, and after that, I don't remember too much. Muzzer says I also got fluid to help keep me hydrated, because I didn't get any water for almost 12 hours, and even then, I only got ice chips for a long time, only a few at a time. Boy, was I glad to see my bowl.
OK, these get yuckier as we go along.
This next shot is a side view of where I have been de-nuded of my manly dog chest hair, and you can see the tubes and the stitches, and some of the serum and bloody stuff that comes out. The yellow patches are from the stuff they painted me with! Did Picasso have a Yellow Period? This Doc must've been inspired by something.
By the way...I think Jackson and I should petition Dr. Snitchybug to make us chest toupees! The ladies don't seem to find my chest as awe inspiring as they once did. In fact, I think I heard Koobee giggling at it.
Ok, I promise this is the last one. For those of you who want to count stitches and stuff like that.
You can still see the outline of Rodney there, and a little bit of swelling, which hasn't changed since I came home from the vet place. And you get a better idea of how long it will be before my hair grows back in - natural curls and all.
Oh, and for those who are concerned that losing Rodney might put my standing as a substantial wire in jeopardy, NO WAY! Rodney was only about the size of a fist, and didn't weigh more than 2/3 lb, so I still have a wide (hehe) margin.
So, did anybody stick with me through this whole tour? Understand that I don't blame anybody who flipped over to read about babies and birds on someone else's bloggie. We posted these in case anyone else has to have this done, so you can check on here and see what it looks like.
Hey Folks....these ARE the AFTER pictures!
