Another Dog Health Adventure

Callie's oral surgery to remove her fractured tooth went okay on Friday, but was not completely without complication.  She vomited during the procedure, which is dangerous for a number of reasons.  She then kept vomiting for the next 20 hours - so she had to be admitted to Westvet as an inpatient for all of Saturday.  She couldn't keep food, water or medications down so we had to go with injections and IVs.  She did eventually get stabalized and was able to keep down some food and medicines, so she came home at 8:30 last night. 

Since then, she's been stable but not particularly happy or comfortable.  Much better than she was, but I do hope she continues to improve, for her sake and for ours.  I hate that she had this complication when she did, but a fractured tooth could not be ignored and it's clear nothing will be easy with her ever again.  That doesn't mean it's not worthwhile.
