What Is Making Me Want To Hide Under The Bed Today...
Isn't that a funny photo? Mark saw this greeting card and bought it for me. It looks just like Howard doesn't it? Anyway, back to the vet this past Friday because Howard had a rash. They did some tests and he has a skin rash due to a Thyroid condition that he will now have to take pills for twice a day for the rest of his life. The doctor was suspicious because his weight was up to 175.5 lbs. When I got there she was like...you need Pet Insurance on this dog! He has had so many different things happen in just two years! You need to look into it before he gets a "preexisting condition" or they won't cover him. Two hours later...enter a preexisting condition...hypo thyroid. Goodbye pet insurance.
And Mark saw the back surgeon last week and yes, he does need to have the disk fused, but this time they want to go in from the front so he has to also have a vascular surgeon in the operating room. This morning he went to meet the vascular surgeon and while he was gone...Molly says "Oh my gosh! My friend Sally Some one's father died!" How? "He had surgery yesterday morning and his blood pressure went crazy and he died last night!" That is horrible. And all I keep thinking is my husband is at the surgeon's office as we speak talking about some crazy cockamamie disk fusion surgery from the front.
