As Luck Would Have It

And just because it’s me….

There is a complication from the dental surgery.

Of course, there is a complication. There had to be one. It’s me, remember?

Do you recall how swollen my face was after the surgery? Little by little, it went away, just as it should.

But as luck would have it, the swelling returned about week ago. I noticed that it was more prominent in the morning and it was almost gone in the evening only to return the next morning.

Damnation, curse and malediction.

It all ties up like this. Continue reading

Update on kitty’s dental surgery

Jay’s dental surgery went well. Very well, actually.

Of course there were tears in the morning as the technician was taken my darling Jay away in his carrier.

But it all went well, in less than the estimated time (20 min instead of 30) which also brought the final cost of the procedure down. In the end it was $200 and a bit less that the initial estimate. Yay!

Kitty is doing quite well. He’s eating just fine. There’s no bleeding and no coughing or vomiting, both of which can sometimes happen after general anaesthesia. I have to give him pain medication for three days and antibiotics for seven days and he’s taking them without fuss.

There’s only the matter of some swelling of his right paw, where they had the I.V. line but it should be gone by tomorrow. He seems to be walking well. No limping at all.

There was a handwritten note with the paper work. I says:

Jay’s dental cleaning and extraction went very well today. He was a lovely patient and we all wish him a speedy recovery!

The technician also said to me Jay was a very sweet cat and they were very impressed how well behaved he was. My brave Jay!

Thank you for your encouraging comments and tweets! They really made a difference.


Waiting for the cab so we could go home

Busy weekend (and week) ahead

I had planned to write a follow up to yesterday’s post but it seems like I won’t have time today.  Or this weekend.  Or maybe even next week.

At Swing Dynamite, we do all kind of cool non-dancing stuff during the summer.  And this Sunday is one of them.  We start the day with a Yoga class at our studio and then we all head to Calypso Water Park for a fun day of sun and water slides.  I can’t wait!!! We had SO much fun last year!

Group pic at the end of the day. So much fun! Unfortunately, some people had already left.
