Loretta and surgery

I thought a lot about whether or not to leave Loretta at home with Alexis tomorrow or take her to the hospital with me. She does all right if I go downstairs for a while, and I think she would be fine with Alexis. However, Alexis has to leave in the middle of the day, and I don't know that being left twice would be good for Loretta's first time at home without me. I am also in an emotional space where I need stability right now, and I think that having Loretta near me might be helpful.

Fortunately, Dad offered to hold her for me. We have done this once at one of my doctor's appointments. She cried when she could hear me but not see me, but she was well-behaved. So I think the key will be her ability to see me and be near me. Tonight we will run some practice commands so that he can bring her near and she will go gently into that recovery room.

I hope you're alright. The surgery's for your eye, correct? I also have a question for you - is it legal for us to bring our dogs into the hospital even though it's a sanitary and sterile place? The laws for this type of thing are the same in Canada as they are in the US, I'm just not aware if this is allowed.

I hope the surgery goes well and you recover quickly. *Love and hugs*
