Well, My baby, Zeus finally had his neck surgery yesterday... The surgery was long at 4 1/2 hrs, but he did well. They scraped off the areas of the vertebrae that were pushing on his spinal cord and causing intermittent paralysis.


...Now he will have to stay in ICU for 3 days and stay extremely immobile since the vertabrae of the neck have been cut.


...It is just so hard being 3 hrs away.. plus not allowed to see him until he is out of ICU....



AND I AM SICK OF CLEANING TO PASS THE TIME AWAY !!!!!!!

At least he is on his way to being better.


He will be home soon.


Come clean here there's lots of stuff you could do here.If you could stop playing with all the dogs.

Happy to hear this is just about over for the both of you. Be very careful when you see him again, that great big hug you been saving up may hurt him

Well everyone, I want to thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Zeus is home now. Amazing after only 3 days of having spinal cordsurgery. They thought he would bethere 7- 10 days. He is eating and drinking, but his legs are still ataxic (very unbalanced). Just need lots of time, rest and lovin.


And oh yea 2bad, I did give him a BIG QUEEZE, but gentle!



I am also behind in my kisses.
About 250= 50 kisses per day!!!
