The vet called me at 9:30, 2 hours after we dropped them off, and all was done and good and they could be picked up any time after 1pm. I had the blood panel done on the dog, just because of his age and she said it was all good. DH had gone straight back to bed after we got home. I tried (to sleep upstairs) but then the call came. And then about half hour later I figured I'd better call my mom and remind her I'm coming and let her know what time.
So, from 10:30 to almost 1pm (literally a block from her apartment, LOL) I tried to call her and no answer. I figured she'd be back from wii bowling (9:30) by then and no exercise on Monday. Who knows where she was all that time. She doesn't remember, LOL. When she finally did answer she had just gotten upstairs from lunch. And try as I might (I really did try!) I could not find her lost cell phone. I also noticed the thumb tack in the wall where her last years calendar was. Hey, you should hang up the calendar I got you for Christmas! That's missing too, and of course someone must have taken it. She never throws any piece of paper or mail away, but I guess she threw that out, haha.
I planned to get to the vets at 1:30 but even though it's only a 5 minute drive from my mom's by the time I left her place, chatted with the lady that works there, and drove over to the vet, it was 1:45. It was like 2:15 by the time I left. Had to pay, get instructions. Then they brought the pets out, with instructions. Then I realized they didn't give me/charge me for the adequan I asked for refill on. Another 5 or so minutes for that and pay for that. The total bill (not including the adequan) was quite a bit less than I was anticipating. I was guessing $850 and it was $687. That included $225 cost to send the lumps into pathology.
Pooch seemed more "with it" this time than his last lump removal last April, but probably because he had more time to recover at the vets before I picked him up. Kitty meowed most of the way home. Nice little meows. Until I'd turn around to look at him and then he'd see me and give me Satan's meow! LOL.
After an easy dinner of hot dogs (I had stopped and picked some up because I assumed pooch would have some pills to take, but he did not) I crashed on the couch and finally kitty wound down and crashed with me on the blanket and I didn't wake up until 7pm.
The instructions say to let them try some food after 8. Kitty just ate a little bit now. I figured 15 minutes wasn't going to make a difference. At least I hope not. When the vet tech handed me him in his carrier she said here's Amos - he's nutless now :)
