So I got some real good news today...
I don't gots to go to my groomer on Saturday!
The bad news is that mom and Pippen had to take me to the Emergency last night!
I had been licking my paw a lot so mom took a look at it and guess what... it was totally all swollen up!
Mom suspected spear grass also known as foxtail... so off we went to the hospital.
One of the nice ladies took me into the back room and then the doctor went and talked to mom and Pippen.
The doctor said that I let them look at it but when they wanted to touch it I got mad. So the doctor said that they would have to sedate me and open up my paw to see if any bad things were inside.
And then the went home! Just left me there! Can you imagine it?
Mom called the hospital early this morning and they said if she brought lots of bags of cash, they would release me. Pippen tells me that she really hemmed and hawwed over that but eventually decided to spring me from jail. Good thing, I'm thinking!
The doctor said that they did a big incision and went real deep but couldn't find any foreign material (really why the heck was he looking for material when mom told him it was spear grass???) He said that they flushed the wound and stitched me back up so I should be good to go once I'm all healed up.
So for the next few days, I'm gonna take my pain meds and antibiotics...
and catch a sunbeam and have some really good dreams.
Oh and you know what? Now that the crisis is over... Mom's calling me "Gimpy"
