Oh Noes!

On Tuesday morning I woke up in a lot of pain. It was my back! And my back legs felt all funny again. Mommy and Daddy took me to see my vet, who said we should wait 24 to 48 hours and use anti-inflammatories and pain meds to try to avoid another surgery.
On Tuesday and Wednesday I was pretty tired and a little bit out of it, as you can see.

Well, the plan worked for the first day, but last night I started to get worse. So this morning we went to the specialist, who sent me for an MRI. When I woke up from the MRI, I was all sleepy and a little bit upset. I really wanted to go home, but the MRI revealed that I do need to have another surgery! :(

I'll be back in a couple days... Wish me luck!

Pee Ess from Poppy's Mom: We just dropped her off at VSA for her surgery. We get to visit her tomorrow and then pick her up on Saturday morning. In our family we have now had two knee surgeries (Dad), two toe surgeries (Mom), and two back surgeries (Poppy). I think that's enough!

UPDATE: Poppy is out of surgery and doing well so far. We'll get to visit her tomorrow and maybe even bring her home tomorrow(if not, then Saturday).

Getting better soon Poppy. We know this is your second surgery, have your parents found Dodger's List yet? They are very helpful about post surgery recovery and very supportive for your people.

We're so sad to hear this news. We know the surgeries aren't fun. And we agree that there has been enough surgery in your family to last a lifetime. We do hope this is the last one and are glad that it went well. Hopefully you will be back home soon. Get well soon, you pretty little blonde Chihuahua.

Poppy,

Oh no! I didn't go online this weekend and so I didn't know about your surgery! I'm so sorry your back hurt you again and I hope you're feeling better now.
