NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

MIA for a Day. Or Two.



Well. That wasn't what we planned!

I got home from work on Tuesday only to be informed that my poor Peter needed to have emergency sinus surgery the next morning at 11 am. I just got home from the hospital. Long story short, it turned into a whole day of doctors, nurses and needles, because he went into a mild atrial fibrillation just before the surgery from being stressed out. They decided to move him to a hospital (rather than doing the procedure at the ENT clinic), so they could monitor his heart better and have the proper meds and a cardiologist handy. It was a long day, but all is well. Peter is fine and recovering. He's sore as all get out, but he can breath easily through his nose for the first time in weeks and his heart is ticking along famously. Yippee!

I'll be going back to the hospital tomorrow to pick him up, but I think Skye thinks I lost him somewhere. He keeps going outside to find him, then coming in and looking at me suspiciously. Max is already curled up and sleeping on Peter's side of the bed. :-)

Have a good couple of days, everyone! I'll be back with books and other random learning thoughts just as soon as my poor guy is feeling better.

Oh my Lezlie, that sounds so scary. I'm relieved that the surgery went well and he's recovering nicely. I'll be sending healing thoughts his way. Yes, dogs are so sensitive to that kind of thing aren't they? They don't normally like when something is missing from the normal order of things. Take care of yourselves.

Wow,
That didn't sound like much fun.
Best wishes to Peter!
Tell him to keep that nose of his out of trouble.
Ron told my cats that he had buried me out in the backyard. when I was in the hospital.
They were so relieved when I came home. I sure Skye was happy to see him too.
