    Hi Karen,
    I'm just catching up with everything going on with Annie. My goodness! I would be a basket case myself by now so to me your reaction is perfectly normal. Prayers rising for the very best news this morning. Please let us know when you can.

    Oh! I wrote a post to you about Lyso usage and it's not here...or anywhere else that I can find on the forum. So apparently I did that while my mind was not with me but off on its own somewhere. I'm glad Marianne gave you the pertinent info!

    Hugs,
    Leslie

    Hi Karen,

    From experience… If you think that you're going crazy and should be committed, you are most likely perfectly fine and are acting entirely normal. The ones that are truly mentally ill, ofen believe they are perfectly normal. Weird huh? You are distraught to the point where it's hard to function, which is totally understandable under the situation.

    Many of us understand the waiting and feeling helpless, with regard to our fur babies. Know that you are not alone. Please update us when you can.

    We made it through the horrible Chicago traffic to the Blue Pearl specialty clinic in just a little over two hours. Annie slept all the way and we got her checked in but we won’t see the surgeon until tomorrow. They will do another ultrasound and all the blood work in the morning.

    It absolutely killed me leave to her there. I just felt like my heart was being ripped out. Our regular doc at home did go ahead with the stim test but we were in and out of there so fast I grabbed the printouts and didn’t even try to look at them so I have no numbers to share. The clinic here in Chicago has copies of everything they need so I’ll ask the dr. tomorrow if I remember.

    Oh, Julie....we are up here in Northbrook or maybe it’s Northfield. Jerry told me we are about a mile or so from Lake Michigan. You probably know where we are—I don’t have a clue.

    The doctor we saw this afternoon told us all the bad stuff that could go wrong with this gallbladder surgery and displayed absolutely NO compassion for us whatsoever. Oh man, I thought I was going to come unglued! At some point, I will be having a serious discussion with whoever she reports to. We have worked with the surgeon before when we needed a consult for Gracie about 4 years ago and he a great guy with a lot of heart.Well, I ‘m exhausted and my feet hurt. Thanks for being here for us and our little pup. Blessings to you all. Karen

    My heart is hurting for you guys but try to stay positive. I know...easy for me to say but Annie will need your calm energy today. I do know where the clinic is. If I didn’t have to go to work today I would head that way to lend some support and distract you for a bit. Sending hugs and prayers!

    Annie went in for surgery about noon today. She’s been in for about 30min and so far so good. No news is good news. Met with the surgeon earlier and he was very confident for her outcome but was also very realistic because she is such a high risk patient. I’m so grateful for all your thoughts today. Go hug a pup from me and Annie. Blessings to you all. Karen
