Bat FairyGood morning my darklings.  I’m back!  Mostly. 🙂  I’m still not supposed to be here at the computer but, what the heck?  I can sit up so I can sit in my computer chair, right?  So how have my gothlings been doing?  I’m serious, leave a comment and tell me what you’ve been up to.  I’d love to know.

So the surgery went fine.  Many panic attacks for nothing.  A downer is that I’ve lost my pain pills and I’m still in pain but I’ll just have to deal with that.  I wanted to save some for when I get my migraines but that idea’s out the window now.  That’s a real bummer because they hurt worse than the surgery recovery without the pills.  Anyone who’s ever had one where you want to lock yourself in the quietest, darkest room and pray that you fall asleep to dream away the pain knows that.

I also got more bad news.  Monday I have to put one of my dogs to sleep.  She’s in pain and there’s nothing we can do about it.  Surgery would be thousands of dollars, leave her deaf in one ear and not guarantee that the same thing won’t happen again because she had a growth on her eye we had removed and another one has grown back already.  She can’t keep food or water down anymore and I just can’t let her suffer.  The hard part will be explaining where she’s gone to my 5-year-old who’s very attached to her.  Luckily we do have the puppy but even he was mourning her last week when she had to have a minor surgery and she wasn’t around for him to play with.

The important thing is that she doesn’t hurt anymore.  Now if I could find my pills and do the same for me.
