Beau sporting Two shaved legs, the bandage she said was for the catheter. The other for drugs.
He was one drunken dog when he came home at 12:45 and this is how he laid until 2:45.
No food or water since since the night before.
He would not wake up. When we brought him in, he staggered a few times and fell.
the tech said he would sleep about an hour or 1 and 1/2. Then he cold eat.
I felt his paws and they were all four like ice.
I went into recovery nurse mode,
Slapping his face gently, gently saying
Beau, what's my name, what's your name, how man fingers do you see!
Over and over, he finally got up staggered around and around like a drunken sailor. Every 15 minutes I did the same thing. after 4 times of this we all three staggered out into the back yard and he peed and we clapped and yelled good boy. On the way back into the house he staggered and fell up against the book case and 5 yelps like a dog hit by a car, just ripped my heart into pieces.
Finally at 4 pm he ate two ice chips, 2 saltines and a piece of cheese to give him his pain pill.
He did not come back to normal until this morning.
Still half drunk he slept from 7:30 to 2.22 am, I heard him smacking his lips and immediately went into helicopter MOM MODE.. could not go back to sleep, got up and he did not follow me down the hall.
I fretted and fretted and Bob got up at 3 and came down the hall. Beau did not follow.
Bob hollered down the hall Beau come here.
He slowly walked to the back door, went out and stared around and came back in.
I took his water bowl and sat it under his face where he laid on the carpet and wonder of wonders he drank a good bit of water. I handed him a piece of dog food, he ate it and i filled his bowl with his regular 3:30 am food and he ate it all and half a bowl of water.
He is back! I have stopped fretting except for the $420.00 the x-rays cost, we still don't know what they found.
Will update when they call...... We have survived a simple TEST! I think it hurt me most!
