A Series of Unfortunate Events

Yesterday I went to the hospital for my uterine ablation, things did not go as planned. It was a disastrous day to say the least.

When I woke up in recovery everything seemed fine, I wasn't in a lot of pain but then the nurse made sure to let me know like 50 times that I needed to talk to the doctor before I could leave. She just said something didn't go according to plan and he needed to talk to me about it.

Come to find out the device that does the ablation wouldn't work in my uterus and when they were trying to get it to work they ended up accidentally puncturing my uterus. They did tie my tubes which was kind of pointless because now I'm going to have to go back in January and have a hysterectomy.

As if that wasn't annoying enough, when we got home Susie had thrown up all over the house, like 8 piles of puke, it was awful. We had to go out and rent a carpet cleaner at 8 o'clock last night. Susie ate her dinner and everything seemed fine, we just thought she had an upset tummy.

This morning the kids were woken up by Susie puking in their rooms again, it was just water this time. She kept throwing up water and wasn't eating her food which is really strange for a lab so I took her into the vet right away.

We think she had toxins in her system because she eats grass and earlier this week the pest control people came out and sprayed. The spray was supposed to be animal friendly but it's still not supposed to be ingested.

So, now Susie is at the vet getting fluids, I got to clean the carpets again and I'm in desperate need of a nap. So much for taking it easy.

Sorry to hear about all the suckage. I hope Susie is feeling better, and that you are too.

Holy crap, what a week you've had.
Hope the weekend gets better and stuff, or at the very least, that nothing else crazy happens to Your Lady Business.

Oh my goodness, what an awful day. Hope that things are ok with your pup and that you are ok with the HUGE medical mistake that was made.

You poor thing. What a nightmare! Hope that things are calming down.

I might go find myself another doc. I am not sure I would trust someone who poked a hole in me!

Hope you and the pup are feeling better.
