Dept. of lost lunches

The s.o. is a notorious puker. He has what polite folks call a "delicate stomach." Absolutely anything, from chili dogs to sleep deprivation, can make him heave.

Our new dog Cairo gets carsick. Very reliably carsick. We've been joking that he takes after his daddy.

So it's no surprise that when the surgeon called me just now, she said that Cairo had thrown up some liquid while under sedation. Because of that, they want to keep him under observation overnight to make sure he's not getting a fever. BUT...the important thing is, the surgery went absolutely fine. He is now down to three legs and zero balls (imagine waking up to that!).

I am massively relieved but still wary. I won't feel right until he is home again.
