It's the waiting that sucks....(updated)
Rookie is out of surgery and doing okay. He's not completely awake yet, but the surgeon said he did well with the anthestia. The joint lesion they removed was rather large, 1/2" x 1/4" so he is very hopeful that he'll find immediate relief. So for now, Rookie is well on his way to recovery...and I get to go get my yellar dog tomorrow. Thanks for all of your well wishes...
Hey guys, just checking in. Dropped Rookie off for surgery this morning at 8:30AM. I was okay until he whimpered when the vet tech took him and I was walking to go to the bathroom. My poor boy. I am hanging out in Lansing with Nicole and her crew today...they will call when he's out of surgery...but I think I am going to call soon. He'll have to stay overnight (it's a 24 hour facility so there is always someone around) and I will pick up up tomorrow.
Anyways...that is what I know right now. I'll update after I talk to the surgeon.
