    DefaultThe vet called today

    At home. Left a message. It says, "Hey, this is Bruce, I'm just calling on Angus. Give me a call back."



    He knows my cell number. He called it just a couple of days ago. Why would he call my home and leave a message?

    I know why. It's not good news. If it was good news, he would call me on my cell phone and make my Friday. No, this was news you should only hear at home. So he left a message and told me to call him back so I could do it from home.

    I just had a little meltdown. I am filled with dread. I was going to class tonight, but I am not in the mood now. :'(

    This week has been a horrible range of emotions for me. I'm like a bipolar person right now. One day I think, "Oh, I've got this all figured out, we can lick it, I know it's going to work out!" I was SO optimistic yesterday and this morning. Then I get this phone call, and I'm ready to crawl under a rock and die.

    Kevin says I am reading too much into the phone message. Maybe. I do tend to read too much into things (if you hadn't already gathered that from my cancer post). Every time he's called me it's been on my cell. Why the home phone now?

    Can't be good.

    I need some positive thoughts. Please? Not that I deserve them. :-[

    I have been thinking that I knew exactly what we were going to do. But now I'm afraid he may have some more information that's going to change what I think is the right course of action.

    I'm very scared.

    Oh Connie I feel for you.

    I know it is hard, but don't read too much into it. There could be various reasons.
    I had a vet call my cell phone with bad news.

    Call him back and see what he says.

    Continued good thoughts.

    You are in my thoughts -- give him a call back and see what information he has. He is a busy vet, perhaps he wasn't even aware of what number he was calling. Please let us know what happens. ((((HUGS)))

    He also may have been doing his nightly follow up calls and dialed the first number he found in your file. Also, cell phones are so unreliable---my husband personally will avoid calling one at all cost.

    Connie, try not to panic. I know how you're feeling because my mind works like yours in these situations. Can you call your Vet back or do you have to wait until tomorrow....or Monday? If it was me I'd want to hear what he had to say asap. You already know what the scenarios might be, right? I'm praying that it's good news and the fact he called on your home phone doesn't mean anything. (((hugs)))

    Man this blows me away. I didnt know Angus was having some probs. He's a really young, strong guy, I bet he does really well with any treatment. Try to stay positive which I know is hard because Id be flippen out but try for his sake so he gets all positive vibes.

    I know this has to be hard, but the more you positive you can be the better it will be for everyone. When Matt was having his bone marrow transplant I focused on staying positive. I know it help all of us.

    We are here for you any time you need it. (((hugs)))
