Otitis Externa


Is Home Again

It's an anxious time when your pal is the hospital, especially for surgery, and you're awaiting that call that will tell you how the operation went. You hope, and pray probably more than you ever did, and when it comes, and you're told everything went fine, and your little pal is awake, and alert, you pray again...this time thanking, thanking, thanking.
That night you go bed picturing once again your little pal in her cage...hopefully sleeping...hopefully alright. The night is long, but morning comes, and the drive to pick her up is just a blur...your anticipation of gathering her up blotting out everything else.
You arrive at the hospital, and they bring her out to you...faces don't register, conversation is just noise, but her little face, and wagging tail brings you back to joyful can function once again. It's the same for your pal...her confidence in life restored, anxious to get out of there, and home.
