    I’m back at the emergency vet with Ruffles, who started having the same symptoms that brought her here a month ago this weekend. Her liver values are back up and I expect she’ll be having gallbladder surgery here shortly. Prayers and positive thoughts please!

    Thanks, Margi. Surgery is tomorrow morning. If she does OK, she can come home Friday.

    Oh I'm sure sorry to hear this! Poor Ruffles. I hope everything goes off well, Ann. I know how worried you will be until she's back home. How old is Ruffles now?
    Like there isn't enough on your plate....:no:

    Prayers and good thoughts coming your way. :hugs

    Prayers for Ruffles and You, I hope everything goes well for her surgery. I know you will be worried but you have said before that you are comfortable with your Vets. I am sure they will do their very best for Ruffles. Let us know how she does.
    Prayers and fingers crossed.

    She's 9, Sharon. Thanks, the vet said she's young and otherwise healthy so we hope it will all go smoothly. But a heads up for anyone needing gallbladder surgery for their dog...the cost has gone up to three times what it was when Checkers and Lacey were done a few years ago. A great reason for pet health insurance. Which, of course, I don't have on Ruffles.....:eek2:

    I will be mostly offline until Tuesday (road trip time!), but I might have to sneak a peak to see a 'ruffles is home' post!
