Heck, I'm going to skip a title for this post. I typed in about 10 things and can't come up with one. I went back to try to find the post about Tom's surgery last May. Of course, Blogger can't leave anything alone, and I can't find it.
Anyway, last May we attempted a dental for Tom. He had some complications and his temp spiked to 106. They got the bad teeth out, but really couldn't finish the dental or remove the growths that needed taking off. His teeth have gotten horrible in the mean time. He now has a root exposed where the gum has receeded so badly.
We had pre-op bloodwork and the kidneys are looking pretty good. Some of you may not know that Tom also had kidney disease. So I am asking for everyone I know to be praying or thinking of Tom on Tuesday morning.
We are inclined to think his temp spike the last time was related to stress. He doesn't do well on car rides or trips to the vet. He is always excited to go, but just is a nervous wreck. When they took him in the back to draw blood and do his nails, the vet decided to try something. She took his temp before they started and it was 103. By the time they had drawn the blood and done his nails, it was already 104. So, we are giving him a sedative at home and they will be ready and waiting for him when we get there.
