On the “Fritz”

If you’ve been a regular visitor for a while now, then you already know that a post without outfit photos is never exactly good news here at StyleIsMyPudding.  πŸ™

You’ll remember me mentioning a couple of Fridays ago that Fritzie, one of our little ferrets, had quite unexpectedly developed bladder stones; we’d planned a surgery to have them removed for the following Monday…but on the advice of his doctor, ended up opting for medication that would hopefully dissolve the stones instead.

Things seemed to be going well – other than needing to pee a lot, he was acting his normal playful self – until late Wednesday night.  Suddenly, he couldn’t “go” at all…which instantly becomes a very serious situation.  Thank goodness that we have an Animal Emergency Hospital not too far away; at midnight, there really was no other option.  We left him in their capable hands…and at 4:30 yesterday morning, we had a phone call that they’d managed to unblock him.

Surgery was the next step, so after only two hours of sleep, I returned to the Emergency Clinic to pick him up and transfer him to his regular veterinarian.  I’ll spare you the all details of that nightmarish trip – I had to stop in the middle of traffic a couple of times to calm him down – but long story short, he had the operation yesterday afternoon and spent the night at the doctor’s house for monitoring.

If everything goes according to plan, he’ll be home with us by the end of the day today; but for now?? All I can do is keep my fingers crossed that on Monday it’s back to my regular schedule of outfit posts…and with some better news to share with you, too!!
