Angel’s Surgery – She’s Awake!

The surgery was a success and Angel is waking up now – Gloria just called me. The vet said it was the biggest bladder stone he’s ever seen but it’s been removed now and while she was “out” the vet also cleaned her teeth and pulled one. He is going to let Gloria take Angel home tonite because she’ll be better off feeling Gloria near her.

Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers for Angel and Gloria – they can now look forward to a healthy life together. I will keep you updated and as soon as Angel is recovered I’m going to visit her and I’ll be able to post some pictures.

Today is Rick’s birthday and we’re going out for pizza with Tom and Becky. Connie taught at a retreat last weekend and I have some really fun pictures to post. Now that we have Angel on the road to recovery, I can tell you all about her fun weekend.

Thank you, Prayer Warriors!

    I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words, stories and prayers for my sweet Angel. I also want to give a huge thanks to Dr. Moeller of Charles City Animal Clinic for a successful surgery and wonderful care he gave Angel. We get to pick her up in a couple of hours and I can’t wait to hold her and bring her back to her forever home. Thanks again!!!
    Happy Birthday Rick!

    Thank you, Mary, for the grass seeds. Is there anything special I should do to plant them? I am the “ black thumb” of the family and I know nothing!!

    Praise be to God for Angel’s successful surgery. Now we should pray for a quick recovery. Give Rick our birthday wishes for a great year ahead. I hope your “night out” is fun and relaxing. Bailey gained 15 lbs since I adopted/rescued her 8 months ago. I would say she is thriving in her new home.

    Glad to hear Angel can go home tonight. She and Gloria will both sleep more peacefully!!
    Colorado is under a state of emergency so I have a crockpot of soup cooking. Not sure what this will mean for all of us, but I’m feeling pretty prepared to quarantine, if necessary.

    God is good! So glad Angel is on the road to feeling better m. Between the kidney stone and tooth, she could not have felt very well. So thankful for the wonderful care she received and for the wonderful home and family waiting to take her home. Two reasons to celebrate – Angel and a big happy birthday to Rick! Sounds like a fun evening.
