Still waiting for the phone call
I think I'll go out and clean his cage.
4:35 PM: Got the phone call. Waiting for another one now. Harley's staying overnight. The vets have been slammed all day, and the vet wanted to be able to work on Harley in an unhurried fashion. She'll call again tonight after the surgery.
I asked how today's jaw X-rays looked, and her answer, verbatim:
"Well, not great. But not, you know, incompatible with life."
So there we have it. Unless something goes wrong in surgery - always a possibility - its the best news we could have hoped for.
7:43: Still waiting.
8:28: Just got the call. He had his teeth ground down, woke up, and started cramming hay into his face. He goes back for another trim in a month.

Poor little guy. Hope things go well and Harley goes on to enjoy life and veggies (if they're not one and the same).Posted by: leslee at June 14, 2005 07:10 PM
I bet Harley increases your hit count. :)Posted by: susurra at June 14, 2005 07:25 PM
Yay! I was hoping he'd be okay. Geez, we love these little ones as much as the big ones, don't we?Posted by: KathyF at June 15, 2005 04:51 AM
Hooray for Harley! Carrots for everyone!Posted by: Vicki at June 15, 2005 05:38 AM
Yay! I'm so glad to hear it. (anonymous stranger on the internets worrying about your pets-how strange. But I was worried, and I am glad he's better.)Posted by: Equinox at June 15, 2005 07:31 AM
Go, Harley, Go!Posted by: Space Kitty at June 15, 2005 09:44 AM
