Follow Up


Yesterday I mentioned that Ally (my schnauzer) has a urinary tract infection.  Wrong.  She has bladder stones.  Many, many stones.  So many stones that she's having surgery today.  The vet said that her bladder is so bloated and has so many stones that, if she showed me the x-ray, I would know right away that there are stones.  OS took her to the vet for me and called me after she saw the vet.  Here's what I heard:  Ally has a lot of bladder stones that are going to require surgery.  The bad thing is that it's going to cost $6700.  That blew me away.  All I could think about was, "How am I going to pay for that?"  She talked to me about prepping her for surgery and when she could do the surgery, but I was stuck on the price and wasn't really hearing what she was saying.  After I hung up, I went back to lunch, and told the women I eat with what she said.  One of the ladies said she was going to call her vet  and see what he charged, because $6700 was just outrageous.  That's when it hit me:  The vet hadn't said $6700, she said, "6 or 7 hundred".   That I can deal with.  I called her later in the day and got the details.  We both had a good laugh about the misunderstanding, and I know that my little girl is being well taken care of.  It's really hard with her not being here; Pepper is acting a little strange, staying closer to me than usual. 

Here's the picture of the statue of Mary that I talked about yesterday:
The statue is Our Lady of Fatima.  The 3 children are the visionaries that Mary appeared to at Fatima, Portugal.  The feastday of Our Lady of Fatima is 13 May, so, if you're curious as to the incredible story, come back on Friday!

  5. Whoa! $6700 would put me into shock, too! By the time you figured out that it was 6 or 7 hundred, that price probably seemed like a bargain. ha!

    I'll be here Friday! ;-)

  8. I will be back to hear about Our Lady of Fatima. Do you know anything about Our Lady of Lourdes...and Guadalupe? I am fascinated with them....also La Negrita in Costa Rica? I am so sorry that puppy is feeling poor....but the price mistake was priceless. That so sounds like something I would do.

  10. This is what Ozzie just went through too. ($1500.00) I hope she does well.....we had some 'messes' for a few days after. But maybe it's because he is a messy boy!
