Mom was told that they would still try to give me all my shots if they could and burrito me for claw trim. Mom told me she kept asking on the phone to the v-e-t, about how in the wide world I could do all that (she believed them...just could not figure how when I was packing the gabapentin) with sedative in me that worked great the one time SHE got it into me.
So I came home with no blood work this time as was planned, as they didn't want to torture me; and I'd had a full panel 6 mo. ago. No real exam....no potty patch. Just nails and shots. Almost a bust. They way they talked to her on the phone, I wasn't even going to get the shots. But they got it done while mom was on my way.
Now. When I got home, I ate big as soon as I got out of the PTU. Then, I staggered to mom and asked to be picked up. She picked me up under my arms and settled me on her lap. I immediately laid my head on her chest and closed my eyes and fell deeply asleep. The gabapentin had finally kicked in. I slept 6 total hours undisturbed. They had waited 2 hrs., but apparently it wasn't enough. Mom put me on my recliner after half an hour on her lap and that is where I slept my 6 hrs.
I slept with mom though at night. ON her head. I needed that.
Here is a picture mom took when she laid me in my recliner. My head was down and my face buried except the mustache side was up facing.
It was a bad bad bad day for me...and Mom too. Next time they will likely wait a bit longer. I hope I will recover from this because I had just started acting nicer while there the last 2 times.. They thought Mom should have been there. MOM thought so too but they wouldn't let her.
Oh. I lost 6 oz. since August 2019. Mom helped with that by giving me just enough dry food to cover the bottom of the bowl 1 layer (medium sized) and premium wet food 2 times a day. I eat it all. I have been more active too.
Air Lily, with Lily flying the pink jet, gathered up all my Twitter Pals, the woofies and kitties, and brought them to the Vet's office to hold my paws. But they all landed just before momma got me. It was so good to see them!
