with this post i close the door on my latest travel journal. done!
i must say i make my travel journals for my future self. she will be v.v. happy one day. me? i’m just glad to wrap things up.
as you might remember dear wyatt earp moss had a tumor growing on his head, most of which was beneath his fur. i had taken him to an animal hospital here in highland park and was unhappy with the care he received. substandard on so many different levels. i floundered not knowing what to do and finally found a wonderful vet recommended by my friend susan. unfortunately the waiting list for new patients meant i couldn’t get in to have wyatt reevaluated for 2 months. it seemed counterintuitive, but my gut feeling was to WAIT.
it was the right choice. wyatt’s been recovering from his latest surgery for a week now. ALL of the cancer was removed and the prognosis for recovery is good. thankfully his new doc is a skilled surgeon with decades of experience. not only that but i’ve had an opportunity to watch him in action with other patients. he loves people and animals and treats both with the utmost compassion. what a relief! such a difference from the other place and their revolving door approach.
we’ve had one check-up since the surgery and stitches come out in another week. best of all, wyatt is a permanent patient now, which means he’ll be seen promptly and won’t have to be put on a waiting list.
i’ll post a photo of him once his cone comes off and his stitches come out.
