It all started with me taking our new adoptee, Sparky, to the free spay and neuter clinic a couple of weeks ago. At one point in our lives both Lawrie and I were ambulance EMT's so I was interested in the procedure and decided to watch while Sparky was neutered.
As it turned out he needed more than just a simple neutering as one of his testicles was still inside, and to save future complications it needed to be removed with a more intricate procedure. I volunteered to hold a light to give Dr. Lynn Beckmann a better view of his insides. I discovered I didn't have the fortitude to watch while my little buddy's intestines were probed and prodded, and then stitched up. I had to take several small "sit down or fall down" breaks. Dr. Beckmann was quite concerned that at any minute I was going to be her next patient.

He's feeling miserable, and former ambulance EMT's make terribly impatient patients! The good thing is Dr. Salas makes house calls, and he stopped by to fix Lawrie up.
Finally, Tommy, my fifteen-year-old cat decided that since everyone else is getting extra attention he should express his displeasure for being ignored. He vomited his breakfast - all over my toes.
When will all this drama end? And you all thought that we were having a nice two week rest from writing this blog, when in reality it has been a living hell.

Looking forward to a new and better week. We want our calm, pleasant paradise back!
