Today I have a post that isn’t the type I usually write. Tomorrow morning, I will drop my little Pupusa off at the hospital for major surgery. She will be getting spayed. I’m sure you are all wondering why I haven’t taken care of that yet. She had undergone more pressing surgery for her leg about a year ago. And then more recently when I took her in to get the procedure done, it was cancelled because she had just started to go into heat. That day I was an emotional wreck, sobbing like a crazy person in the clinic, and I will confess that a part of me was relieved it was cancelled because I didn’t 100% love the vet that was going to do it, and I really wasn’t ready to do it.
I think perhaps that going through some personal problems at that time just made the idea of Pupusa having any type of procedure overwhelming to me. I’ve had plenty of dogs and I always neutered them without much stress. And I am not 100% sure why I’m having such a hard time with it for Pupusa. She’s so tiny. And it’s not as simple as it is for males. They will be taking out so much of her.
Anyway, if you wouldn’t mind, I have small request that you will send your good thoughts and/or prayers our way for surgery without complications and speedy healing. I knitted this sweater for her so that she doesn’t lick her wound once surgery is over.
