Hey Sally! So glad Frankie is receiving such creative, loving hearts and cards. You, Frankie and Myrtle are so inspirational!

I hope tonight goes easy for you and Frankie. Mona’s vet always told me to keep the lights down low for a cat recovering from anesthetic. Perhaps Frankie would like that. With soft music perhaps?

Sweet dreams Frankie.

Great idea Kerren!! I didn’t even think about that! Lol, i did that with Huck a lot and we did that at the animal hospital for the ones that were stressed.  

I played music for Huck smh time we weren’t in the room.  Very soothing.

Yeah, good idea kerren!  That boy has noooo odea how loved he is-  I got up REALLY EARLY to take him in this a.m….and I HATE getting up earlu!!! But  I did that for Frankie❤😂🤣 Now, on top of that, I’m going to cut the TV off to give him quiet, which means I have to eat ice cream without TV noise inn the backgroun.  But I’ll do that for Frankie❤😂🤣

Yeah, some soothing music sounds nice for both of us!

Hey Frankie- there’s that old saying ‘chicks dig scars’… but really, your mom could use a break from surgeries!  So let’s get this one healed up and avoid the vet for awhile!

Great to hear surgery is over, and Frankie is home! Seeing pink elephants is double sworded for some animals. I agree on the darkness, and quite it helps!

We had two days of the too many pink elephants here and had to go back to the vet for extra fluids to help flush anesthesia for poor Saxton plus anti-nausea meds. So much for freakin routine. 🤬

Get better soon, SUPER DUPER DAWG FRANKIE!

Sally, please rest when the pink elephants are not so loud ok.

Sally, I am so sorry. With everything going on I didn’t need your post that Frankie was having surgery.  Hope  is well!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Look at that wiggling butt! And his bark…WOW! Clearly he’s saying “I’m back ladies, look out!”

It’s so great to know things are going smoothly now. Here’s to more restful sleep tonight.
