More tomorrow ...

The dentist appointment didn't go as planned, unfortunately. My appointment was at 1pm and was not allowed to eat or drink for 6 hours prior to procedure. The surgeon was running late and by the time they got to me I was dehydrated and they couldn't get the IV into the vein. After 4 tries and multiple bruises they gave up. Sooooooo chicken, cowardly me had to endure the novacaine needles and nitrous. Once it was numb from the novacaine (which was the worst part of all) I was able to endure. But when they were done I was like a B-O-O-H- to get out of there. I have to go back next Thursday for a follow-up, but that requires a "look but don't touch" procedure.

Thanks for all your nice thoughts sent my way.

    I've taught all my dogs to 'high five'.

And, I have had a coupe of dogs that really love(d) to smell the flowers. My little Mocha will go smell the daylilies and come out covered in yellow pollen. So funny!

    Poor thing. That's what I go through every time I need an IV. They use the back of my hand when I need blood work, cause the veins in my arms roll.

I love the cat run. I'm going to show that to some friends who have 6 cats.

    Oh, Laura! I'm so sorry you had such an awful experience. Too bad they didn't even allow you to have a bit of water several hours before the surgery was scheduled. That surely would have helped. I'm glad next week's visit is a looker only.

The multiple cages around the house is a real interesting was to deal with allowing the cat without having a fence. : )

    Will be glad when this is all over for you!

Love the photos especially the idea of the cages around the house for the cat. Wouldn't go that far but have thought about putting some mesh around the deck rails so I could let Daisy go out there and know she would be safe.

The last picture just stole my heart!

Have a great Friday!!!

    Going to the dentist is not on my "Favorite Things To Do" list. Years ago I use to work for one but I had to quit because I started having sympathy pains for the patients. To this day, I STILL don't like going to the dentist! emoticon

    What a cheerful way to begin my day thank you for the pics so adorable!
You were very brave the dentists seem to be "Masters of Pain" well used to be.
My dentist had some rough work to do so he gave the gas first and then the numbing shot...no problem...but when he finished the work and I was still So buzzed...he did a simple floss and I ...moaneddddddd...oh my how embarressing!
It wasnt a pain moan and I wont say more but I couldnt look him straight in the eye for the rest of the appt.
