We were taking Echo to the Vet yesterday for what we thought was an infected wart. Turns out it was a cyst that was infected. The past week or two he had been licking this area on his rib cage and it was clearly bothering him. Hence we took him in only to find out he needed surgery. Above is his three + inch incision. When Carol brought him home he was somewhat wobbly on his legs and disoriented as to what was going on or where he was. This morning he is back to his old alert self and glad to be home and not have that cyst. We are all glad to have him back to nearly normal and on the mend.
Life here can change quickly. We woke up yesterday morning thinking he would just be placed on medication and the visit and surgery ended up taking most of the day. It took him a while to get over the disconnect of where he was and what was going on. Clearly he was a little foggy as he didn't know his name until this morning. Needless to say he received much pampering and attention. Back to our normal routine or not - here is another day and we'll see what it holds for us. So far it started out with a restless night due to Echo getting over his anesthesia and not being comfortable in any of his normal places in the house. Now it is 21 degrees outside with the possibility of snow later today or tomorrow. Much to prepare for today.
