It’s been “that” kind of week, dear readers…so I’m keeping things as brief as possible today!!
Thank goodness I can at least report that fur-baby Fritz appears to be recovering quite well from his bladder stone surgery…but Robin and I have been dealing with some major stress because of all his post-operative care. Ferrets can be incredibly uncooperative patients, and our little guy is proving to be right up there with the worst of ’em!!
Stabbing him twice a day with a needle to give sub-cutaneous fluids, as well as forcing him to swallow medication that he absolutely despises, has left us utterly wrung out. We know we’re doing what’s best for him…but we feel like the meanest pet parents in the world right now!!
I’m desperately hoping that the x-rays Fritz is scheduled for on Monday give us some positive news; the sooner the remaining stones dissolve, the sooner we can leave these days of torture behind us!!
