If that doesn't make you feel all peaceful inside, I don't know what will! Here's what really did it for me, though! Ready?
That's right - a trip to the Kansas State University Vet Med Teaching Hospital, AKA our vets!
As you might remember, I had surgery back in August and I'm still in the healing phase as far as my incision area goes. And ... you know ... in the hoodie. I had one of my follow-up appointments on Thursday. Come on in the exam room with me!
Here I am, chilling out while my senior student briefs my vet on how I'm doing:
See that door behind me? That's "the back". Every vet seems to have a "the back". I usually don't have to go in "the back"; I am calmest around my mom, so if they can, they do everything in here.
While I was waiting, I heard a Lab back there and a few kit-cats.
I knew they were in good hands back there, but I wanted them to feel serene. I sent them mind-meld messages of calmness through the door.
|"I'm here for you guys!"|
I did some yoga while I waited, too.
Then... my student and vet came in and gave me the news!
|"What?!?! I can go CONE-FREE?!?!"|
Oh, sure, sure, actually they said I'm supposed to be "weaned off the cone" ... something about "close supervision" ... something else about using the BiteNot collar if I don't leave that area alone (because I have an ear infection now...) ... but all I heard was that we're ditching the cone!!! If I'm "good". Would that be "good"-good or "Siberian"-good? Ha roo roo roo!
I'm the picture of innocence.
Trust me. I'm a Siberian Husky.
Keep it serene - and remember to be "good"!
