Good grief this is so stressful.... the only other time he had to stay at the vet's was when he was getting fixed at 6 months, which was 3.5 years ago.
He was all happy, tail wagging and charming the girls at the vet's office. But when I was leaving and one of the vet tech's was taking him to the back, he got scared and sat in the corner by the door to one of the exam rooms. So I quickly left and got in my car to drive to work. Glad I didn't get into an accident as I was bawling my eyes out while driving and then for about an hour when I got to work.
Of course I called the vet's office right away and they said that he settled down nice and that he wanted a lot of belly rubs... so that made me feel better. I know he's fine and will be fine, but I am so upset because he didn't understand why I had to leave him there, and of course because I'm stressed out that he'll have to be put under, and then we have to wait 5 days for the pathology results of the MCT...
I can't wait for 5 pm so I can pick him up.... and I'm crying again. Hope this is normal... I love him so much. Please God let him be okay...
Best wishes for a successful operantion and a quick recovery, Saba.
Prayers and good thoughts for Saba today!
Awwww I know how you are feeling . Been there done that... It's hard, but he'll be in your arms soon. Good thoughts for your precious boy.

Lots of good thoughts for both of you. He will be so happy to see you again this afternoon. Just four more hours.
Thank you. I'm so glad to have lots of great friends at work, also dog lovers so they all understand my lack of brain cells today... Gave myself a frigging migrane from the stress. But I went out at lunch and got him a "feel better" toy
4 hours to go.

Oh, I'm just reading your post. I am so sorry! I do know exactly how you're feeling. It is one of the most stressful things to have to do. I took that day off and sat around the waiting room all day, but that was still probably almost as stressful...maybe more so, because I had nothing to take my mind off it. Better to go to work and occupy yourself, as you can't be right there anyway.
I am probably a little late to be much help, but he will be just fine. I will be hoping that the MCT cytology report comes back very benign!
