Heavy Cloud….But No Rain


08/19/2013 by syrbal-labrys

FarleyHeartThiefUp in the dark to get the Thief of Hearts, Farley Woozle, out to the vet’s place. He will have surgery later this morning to remove his hugely enlarged spleen that has not responded to non-surgical means to reduce it; it often pressures his other organs enough to cause him pain. So, under the knife he goes, and my soft heart with him. Always there is the fear of something impossible to fix being revealed.

Our mountain is buried in clouds, but the day will grow hot and sultry before afternoon. So this song plays in my head as I pace before driving back to the vet office to wait what news may come.

    How is the little one doing? How is the incision healing? Poor little fellow.

    I am glad you got in him quick enough before it got much worse. Sounds like it was a huge one. My thoughts are with you.

      Thanks, Alex. He is home and recovering now…he lost between 1/4 and 1/3 of his total weight when they removed it. He is in pain with stitches and all on the delicate stretched skin, but surely feels better without most of his organs being pressed into his lungs now!

    You and Fat Farley will be in my thoughts today, hon. He really is the sweetest woozle I’ve ever met.

      He is out of surgery, sleeping off anesthesia…I intend to now nap and then go back to get him this evening. And he is a sweetheart, the vet said his spleen must have weighed almost a pound….looked like it came out of a mid-sized dog. He should feel better now, right?
