Nurse Asta (NY) here...reporting on events at Gussie's house this morning.
Of course, dear Teka got us up early so that we could all take walkies with them, and the neighbors had quite a bark when they saw all of us pulling Muzzer and Dad down the street! As a side note..there are lots of those crazy squirrels here, and they are not nearly as well behaved as the ones in New Yawk.
We managed to get back to the little house in the Mid-South just in time for Gussie to pack up and leave for the Vets. Nurse Snickers insisted on accompanying him, just so he w
They set off with Muzzer in the Gussiemobile, while Dad tried to feed the rest of us breakfast. For the record, he is not much of a cook. The Barkies had bacon and eggs, muffins, cheese toast and milk. The rest of the nursies and I had whole grain cereal with fresh fruits and cream, and then went and did our yoga exercises to prepare for post op Gussie Care.
In addition to Jake, Just Harry, Nurse Snickers, nurse Lacey and myself, other members of the dream team who tended Jackson will be joining us. Because this is not as major a surgery as the one Jackson endured, Nurse Asta Oz is going to stay home with her mom and help with the digging on the next excavation site. Head Nurse Agatha is expected momentarily, joined by Kousin Koobie. We are so glad that Nurse Snickers has joined us - with her training with Dr. Snitchybug nearly complete, she will be a big help during post op.
While our experience with J1 and J2 has been helpful here, Gussie's Muzzer and dad have also been a bit of a challenge.
Lacking the "stiff upper lip" training that the Js have gained from their British heritage, Gussie's muzzer is a mass of nerves. I was glad that Gussie was able to drive the gussiemobile to the vets this morning, but let me tell you, it is a major miracle that muzzer made it back in one piece! Good thing Mayemphis doesn't have traffic like we do in New Yawk!
We have put her back to bed with an ice pack, and had a consultation with Dad and the Barkies about what we could do for the rest of the day to keep her calm.
We hope that she will nap and read this morning, and Lacey is preparing a smoothie for her right now. Later today, after we have a chance to talk to Gussie's surgeon, we have decided that I will take her shopping. This may not be New Yawk, but I am sure that we can find some shops to amuse us.
