Dropping Otto off for his surgery was an awful feeling, especially during COVID! We had to drop him off at the front door to the surgery vet tech, which was very sad—he was so scared! The hour ride home was full of tears, prayers and pep talks about how we were doing the best thing for him!
We didn’t know exactly what time Otto’s surgery was so we waiting anxiously all day. We got a call around 1pm from the surgeon as they were gearing up for surgery. Well the butterflies started fluttering in our bellies for the next few hours as we waited to see how our lil guy did. We continuously prayed for positive outcome and successful surgery. About 3.5 hours later, we received a call from the surgeon saying that Otto did well and was resting comfortably. The surgeon has that calm about him that just put us at ease knowing our Otto was in good hands. Late that evening we received another call from one of the surgery vet techs who updated us that Otto was awake, alert and doing so well! She constantly reassured us he was in good hands and they would take amazing care of him! This made our hearts so happy. Sleeping through the night was rough as we laid and wondered how he was doing, worried if he was in pain, sad we couldn’t be there to comfort him. As we wake up on this Saturday morning, we doing our normal routine with the kids and are anxiously awaiting a call from the surgery center to see if we are able to pick up Otto today. We have the house all ready for his arrival. Not knowing what to expect is a scary feeling though! We are committed to doing all we can to ensure he is comfortable and well taken care of! Stay tuned for how we get through the first few days of recovery! In the meantime, please pray for Otto 😊
