Is surgery going to be able to happen today??? Praying that the answer is YES...

I am hoping it will be today the office opens at 9am and I will be calling to confirm at that time and they also have the faxed letter of guarantee so maybe I will hear from them first.

I just spoke to Jason and Cassandra and Sunnymead Veterinary Clinic and they confirmed they have received the faxed letter of guarantee from IMOM and they also said Dr. Park gets in around 10am and I need to call back then to see what he says about doing Smokey's surgery today.

I just spoke to Dr. Park he said he is doing Smokey's surgery this evening and he said "the people who helped you are very nice, don't worry I am going to make him all better for you". he said Smokey will be there until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week but he said I can come by to see him anytime.

I am in as much suspense as everyone else to know how Smokey is doing after his surgery. I am attending my cousin's funeral this morning and soon as everything is over I planned to head straight to Sunnymead Veterinary Clinic but my calendar says otherwise because I have a Dr. appointment at 2:30pm PST so I will call the clinic in between the funeral and my appointment for an update and after my appointment I will go straight to the clinic and get some pictures of my boy

Thank you all again

what a long day ... sheesh

I had no time to call the vet after the funeral and before my appointment I barely made it to my appointment on time.

I did go see Smokey though after he looked so sad when I got there and his bowl was full of food

He got up right after he heard and saw me and stayed toward the back of the kennel

(it looked like he was not used to his cone) then he started looking for his bowl of food and attempted to eat and I hand fed him also.

these are some of the pictures from my visit

I'm so glad you were able to see him yesterday and get him to eat - he certainly needs the food to help get better. You can tell his demeanor is totally different after you have been there with him. Smooch on his head and more wishes for a continued recovery. Betsy

I briefly spoke to Dr. Park since I didn't sign in to see him I only signed in to visit Smokey hopefully if I am able to go today I will sign in to talk to him or a nurse so they can go over Smokey's chart with me and let me know what has happened what else is going on and what will happen

Victoria ~ You can definitely see the adoration in Smokey's eyes when he looks at you. I hope you can visit him again today so he will eat. Just keep talking to him and letting him know that he will be coming home soon. I really believe they understand everything we say.

Lisa,

I am sure there is lots of confusion going on in his mind ..

I just think poor Smokey because he gets up all excited and he must think he is coming home but then I leave without him.

he even meowed a little bit yesterday I couldn't make out what he was trying to tell me but I am almost sure he was trying to tell me to bring him home LOL

I can't wait to bring him home
