As some of you may know, Last week I had to take Dutchess in for what could have been a serious surgery. Of course anytime any dog goes under the knife it can be serious from the anesthesia, the surgery itself or the post-op conditions and of course, I over think each one. About 10 days ago, Dutchess crawled up in my lap and rolled over for me to rub her belly. She has had trouble with one teat and had a lump on it for several years. Well on this night, it was about 3 times its normal size and had an abscess, all of this happening in just a few days. Well as we all do, I go to the internet and Googled some info and I might as well have signed her death certificate. The internet is always a bad place to find medical conditions because it is always giving the worst conditions possible. I called my friend and Vet in Louisville and he said he wanted to see soon but the only trouble, was he was going out of town the next morning and would not be back before the following Tuesday. Waiting, something I don’t do very well and never will. So here we are, Dutchess jumping around like a jack rabbit and me in the dumps. When I worked for this same Vet, I saw many situations come in and assisted in most of them, but when it’s yours, it’s always different.
