Tomorrow is the big day...Skeeter's "big boy operation." I know there have probably been countless posts about nervous parents taking their kitties in for the operations, but I'm still nervous. I know everything's going to be fine, though. We are dropping him off b/t 7:30 and 8:30 tomorrow morning. He is going to have the laser surgery done so he can come home that afternoon. (I wonder if there are stitches with laser surgery??) And we can pick him up b/t 4:30 and 5:30 that evening. We're going to give him some extra special play time tonight and extra cuddle time too. I hate the thought of leaving him all day. I have an important meeting in the early afternoon, too, and I'm going to be so distracted. But, it's the best thing for him. And I only want the best for Skeeter. So, I will put my fears/nervousness/sadness/protectiveness aside for a few hours and just send him loving thoughts and mental kisses. He can't have anything to eat after 8 pm tonight. (Does that mean he can't drink either??) So, he's going to be one upset boy in the morning!!
Please think of us and send Skeeter happy thoughts tomorrow. Thank you!
Thank you both for the encouragement. I know it's a common procedure, but it's still hard on the individual parent(s). We all need that little bit of encouragement. We dropped Skeeter off this morning. Of course, I cried a bit. Jim and I both hate that we can't be with him. Luckily, though, I have plenty to keep me busy today. I'll get some house cleaning done, go to work, go to my meeting, then we'll pick Skeeter up this evening. I'll let you know how he does when we get him home.
