Thanks.
Lunch box is packed with their favourites - lots of cucumber and dill particularly.
Bag packed with hay, nuggets and forage.
Snuggles will go in tomorrow morning.
I’m glad to be working all day to distract me.
I will post my news on Phoebe’s thread tomorrow so as not to hijack yours.
Will be looking out for your update tomorrow evening

Tag me in your thread please so I can check in on her too 😁 I'll post on here as soon as the veg rings. I'll probably be sitting outside the vet then anyway.... 😂

My son has cranio sacral therapy we need to leave soon so hopefully by the time that finishes and we get home it won't be long til she phones. We did discuss the anaesthetic again and she said as he's well if the risk was that high she wouldn't put him through the surgery she would just carry on draining as and when. I was awake from 3.15 so once the phonecall has come and he's doing good it's nap time o clock! I can't pick him up til 6.30-7 x

Vet finally just phoned (I have ring in myself in the meantime and they had a hold up with another surgery so buzz didn't go down til 2pm). He's fine! He's up and about, they've not tried to feed him yet. Apparently there was a lot of abnormal lymph nodes so she's removed all of them and that should be that. She said it could happen on the other side though but we will cross that bridge as and when. I can't wait to see him, pick him up at 6.30 😁 his stitches are internal she said so neither of them can get to them and they'll dissolve themselves. Hoorah!

Great news he's up and about, you must be so relieved! Worrying about the lymph nodes but good they got them in the same surgery. The waiting is the hardest thing, when Theo was neutered his surgery was delayed by an emergency surgery and I was literally sick I was so worried.
Healing wheeks for a swift recovery for your boy! X

Thank you! I questioned her about the nodes thinking oh gosh does this mean its something more and she said no it's where they've harboured a huge infection. Apparently pigs can get infected nodes? So she said just taking them all means it's definitely over for him 💖 she only rang ten mins ago and I'm already twitching with my shoes on to get out the door lol

Thank you! He's eating but he is still pretty drowsy. He's had some hay, cucumber, grapes and coriander. His face is a bit swollen it makes his eye look a bit closed but he seems okay, they're very happy with him. He's back Monday unless he doesn't pick up himself tomorrow. He is on sulatrim now x

He's eating and running around! This is his make shift home for the night, he's going to sleep next to the bed. Should I syringe him still? And should I put woody in this box with him or leave him in their cage? Thank you for all the love guys, I'm so relived this hurdle is over x

If he’s eating normally why not put a a small dish of Critical Care in the box for him to help get him eating well again?
A scattering if oats also seems to go down well.

Relief all round today :nod:
