Poor Jeddy

Jesse spent the day at the vet clinic today. He was sedated for x-rays and blood work. They don't think it's bone, which means it's muscular. He just has to rest, take lots of pain relief tablets and try not to move until it heals. We went to pick him up and as we walked in, we heard this horrible, loud, groan/moan/quiver. I don't know how else to describe it. Steve described it as a howling dog in misery. We joked that that dog didn't sound like he was doing so well, only to be told that it was Jesse:( Turns out he had a really bad reaction to the drugs (Valium) they sedated him with. The vet has only ever seen one other dog react this way in 12 years. That's the only reason she even knew what was happening to Jesse. They had to keep him completely covered in towels or else he'd totally freak out. It was really sad. Really hard to see him like that. He has to spend the night at the vet, sleep off the drugs and should be much better tomorrow. I work in the morning but Steve will pick him up as soon as they open. I miss him a lot and hope that he's feeling better. Poor little guy, he's had a rough few days since Christmas. Hopefully, things turn around for him for the new year. This is a picture that Steve snapped with his iPhone. This is the only way he would stay still and not hurt himself. Sigh. Ah, Jeddy, get better soon! xo
