He's out of surgery and awake and bitching

The vet just called and Biggie's surgery went well and he's awake and complaining. Whew. I was honestly getting a little worried that it was taking so long. But all is good. I had the option of parking him overnight or bringing him home. I figured he and me and The Smalls would all be happier if here were here. Cone and all. She wanted him to stay there a few hours so they could monitor him so I'm going at 7:30 to pick him up.

No stitches. They closed him up some other way - glue? I suggested velcro to be ready for next time. 14 cone days and then he'll have just a naked tummy to show for his exploits.

In a classic case of closing the barn door after the cow's gone out, I bought Biggie a pet insurance policy today. My sincere hope is that I have just thrown that money out the window and will never ever need the policy. I, of course, wish I had done this last October when I first discovered how much his penchant for foreign objects costs me.

I mentioned this to the vet and she said she was pretty sure they would consider another surgery for foreign object swallowing to be a pre-existing condition so they would not cover it. TILT! I wrote an email and asked about this. They are closed for the day now but I'll make sure to get an answer and refund if needed.

I did 20 minutes on the treadmill today total so I'm calling that a victory and taking the rest of the day off.
