Good morning, friends.

Molly never did get her surgery yesterday because they ran out of time. She did get her jaw numbed and sub…subcute….subcutaneous! pain medicine. Subcutaneous…that’s a big word. Mom taught me it yesterday but she had to help me spell it today.

Anywho. Molly just got dropped off for surgery.

She looks scared, huh?

The plan is to remove 2 canine teeth: the one that broke (bottom left) and the one from last time that they said was dying and would need to be removed in 6 months to a year (top left). The vet didn’t remove it last time because he said that removing it along with the lower right canine would increased healing time by up to 4 months?! We’re not sure about that but he’s the professional.

Mom and Dad also asked them to look VERY carefully at the top right canine that would be the sole remaining canine. If it look at all suspicious, they want it removed because surgery every few months is NOT an option. The tech said they would review the x-rays they took last time to double-check and Mom said that the last x-rays indicated the tooth that broke was good tooth so they shouldn’t rely on them.

As awful as it all sounds, Molly with no canines sounds nice. She wouldn’t be nearly as dangerous. Is that a terrible thought? Well, when you weight 22 lbs and have been pinned down by her, it’s not!

I’m not scared of her though. As a matter of fact, we both played this morning AND napped in the recliner with Mom who is home sick. I got tired of Molly calling dibs on Mom’s lap everyday so I just jumped right up there with them. She didn’t growl so Mom let me stay.

 

I’ll be back later after Molly gets home (around 4:00 EST) with an update!

    Good luck to Molly for her surgery!Sounds like she felt more comfortable with all the pain medication seeing as she was happy to share lap time with you Noodle.I expect that has been most of her problem being in pain.I know first hand what that kind of pain is like have had my wisdom teeth removed,had to have it done under general anesthetic as the surgeon in the hospital had to remove a piece of my jaw bone to get one at the pain I had from that was excruciating for about 6 weeks So I can imagine how much pain Molly was in,that would be enough to make anyone or pup grumpy,xx Rachel

  9. Molly will do just fine. I have had all my teeth removed but 6. I got a disease that mostly hits oriental cats and the rotten painful teeth are gone. It took me some time to get over the assault to my mouth and learn to eat dry kibble but I did and so will Molly. She might even become happier.

    Poor Molly, what a rough time!
    Thank you for not having any hard feelings, sometimes old ladies get grouchy, sometimes old ladies have a hard time telling the humans when they are hurting. What a good brother you are. 🙂
    Wags and Kisses to you both! Praying for a speedy recovery for Molly!

    We have been following along though haven’t had a lot of time to comment. We sure hope Molly’s surgery goes well and that maybe things will settle down after this. We do not think badly of Molly at all…she has a reason for acting the way she has been and that does not mean she is a bad dog. We just don’t want anyone to be hurt, and we want you all to be happy! Sending prayers for all of you!
