I am so happy! *doin happy dance* Merlin nearly jumped out of the guys arms when he saw me. Quite different from last nite. While he was happy to see me he laid quietly in my arms like a baby last night.
They brought out a bag of all kinds of stuff in it. We saw syringes and that was bringing back memories!! But they are to give him his pain killer orally. Plus he’s on antibiotics for a few months. We looked at his blood work and Martin knew what all the numbers meant of course. Even I was familiar with a lot of it. Merlin’s white count was high due to infection but not off the charts. *phew* It was good to see a blood report ALL in normal range for a change!
I decided last night to just surrender the amount due on his surgery. I mean, all this is so insane in my life right now. It’s absolutely ridiculous! I was going to just ask what Kimberly suggested and see if the Humane Society could help me out…again. They put Wolfie down for us back in Aug. for free. Oh yea, remember we lost our other dog too during all this!!!! Is it any wonder why I’m ready to crack!
We get all the after care info and she says the balance is “two thirty six ten” I then asked if there was a decimal in there somewhere! After dealing with All Children’s Hosp and Merlin needing an additional 8 teeth pulled and being quoted $642-$675, I had to be sure! Indeed there was! And right where I wanted the decimal to be! *doin happy dance AGAIN* The total for Merlin’s care was $541! Which I still can’t afford at the mo but it’s better than over $1,000!!! Which I was afraid it would be! I didn’t know if I would have enough left on another card to cover it! But I did and it’s less than I thought it would be so that made me feel better. Plus Merlin’s acting like he had nothing done! He’s an animal!!!! LOL
Gotta go and pick up Martin now. I’ll be back later.
IT’S ALL GOOD AGAIN!
