Poor Sneaky Snake. Eye missing, face torn. I felt bad for him.
Friday morning MOM called in a specialist. Dr. Carolyn. Oh she is good. Many times she has hemmed MOM's pants and taken them in. I have seen her work miracles. But would she be able too help Sneaky? I could only hope.
I could not bear to watch the procedure. So I waiting outside in the flowers. I thought I could pick him some get well flowers.
But then the storm clouds started to loom large.
There was lightning and thunder and rain began to pour from the sky just a short distance away. I headed back inside. I thought the storm would make Sneaky even more scared. So I needed to Goose up and be there for him.
When I got back in the operations was under way in the capable hands of Dr. Carolyn.
I could not bear to watch. But I know he knew I was there.
Bleck. I took a peek. Oh it was a gruesome sight. What a brave snake.
The stitching went on for what seemed like 87 hours. I was worried what Sneaky's face would look like. Would he have a scare. But Dr. Carolyn is a pro. Just look at her arm below. She really knows what she is doing.
That's not a tattoo friends. That's the real deal. 11 stitches. She said Sneaky Snake would most likely have about 87 stitches.
Almost done. I think he going to make it. Dr. Carolyn said he would have to take it easy for a while and the stitches would have to stay in forever. But she felt confident that Sneaky would make a full recovery and be back to his old self soon.
Sneaky all curled up in the recovery room. They let me in to help him along.
Oh my Dog! Sneaky is missing an eye. Dr. Carolyn said that it was missing and that there was nothing she could do with out having the eye to work with. But she said Sneaky would grow use to it and in no time would not even notice it was gone.
Sneaky gave me a real big hug when he finally came out of the sleepy drug.
You know I don't mind that Sneaky Snake only has one eye now. It's like he is winking all the time.
Thanks Dr. Carolyn for fixing my friend. I hope you enjoy the treat I left in your purse for payment. Very reasonable price to pay to have my friend back.
