Up early this AM. . . thinking about Kitzi's little Buddy, Sammie, and Kandis. Sending up prayers that all will go well today and waiting to hear how things are falling together. Kandis, I know you are about as well prepared as is possible, so remember to pray & breathe in that order. Sending hugs.

OMG!! He's in there. I'm going home for a bit. They are running late today. I hope he is ok with not eating. Was supposed to be at noon now I'm not sure. I told her to call me when he goes in. Poor little guy was crawling up my neck. (but he needs this surgery). There is a LP post op dog in waiting room and lady was raving about his surgery. I'm still numb.

Kandis - I actually posted to your other thread before I got here. I think it was a sign that Sammie really needs the surgery with his limping this morning. You know it's the right thing and I guess, so does he.
Delaying surgery is so common. They always tend to get emergencies in and that wreaks havoc with the schedule. Sammie's under their care now and he will be watched and taken care of i'm sure. So glad you got to see another mom whose pup had surgery and she's happy.
Trust me, with my knee problems (torn ligaments and meniscus variety in both knees over the years) it's really painful when something's wrong. Actually I did something to my knee exercising this morning and I can hardly put weight on it. :w00t: It really hurts.
It will be hours before you hear anything since his surgery is late so just try to throw yourself into doing something that will distract you. I usually go on a cleaning jag (especially going through paperwork) because I hate doing it but feel like I've accomplished something when it's over.
Praying for Sammie.:prayer:

11:30.
Thank you everyone for your support today. This forum is wonderful.

Sue you are right. It's gotta be uncomfortable. Marj has helped me to come to terms with this for awhile. Like she said, it wont be easy to do this am.
He has never lifted till lately that early after resting. It's getting worse fast. Dr said the other leg will be affected at some point if not corrected. Not sure how.
His ortho has done literally thousands of sm dog LP. I believe they give a mild sedative right off to keep them calm. That makes me feel better. It is at a new hosp with one on one care. Megan the surgery tech is assigned to Sammie all day. So he is not alone he is with her. Eyes on, she said as soon as IV goes in. Of course it has a high price tag too.
Well I could not go home. Went to bfast and am going to a shopping center until they call and say he is ready. Then I will go back to hosp in bout one hr after bec it takes 1 1/2 hrs. I can't visit but I will be there none the less.
I will be back!! Thanks again
xoxo

It sounds like a wonderful medical facility. Some things are just worth the price tag. Silly me suggesting cleaning. What's a better distraction than a little retail therapy at the mall. It's a good place to burn off a lot of walking energy unless you live in NYC where we walk endlessly. Awaiting word from you when he's done.

Praying and waiting for news on sweet Sammie! I know he will do great and I'm glad he will not be alone for a second that is at least some comfort I'm sure!

I woke up this morning and thought about little Sammie and his surgery today. Of course, I said a prayer that all would go well. Just wanted you to know that we're all here praying and thinking about you and little Sammie today.
