Lee's tongue-lash·ing

I, Sweet William The Scot, have had a tumor.  We have known about it for six months.  Lee finally decided we would do the surgery even with my liver numbers being high which Lee did not know about till the morning of surgery.
Surgery was Friday morning.

My old vet the one who has been our vet and her last Scots vet well he retired and sold the practice to three women vets.

I went in at 7 a.m. at 1:15 they called and said I was awake and I could be picked up at 4.  Well Lee arrives to get me.  I am a total mess not cleaned up at all and NO DRESSING on my incision which is still bleeding and still not awake enough to walk.  Lee is not feeling good about this!

We get home Lee carries me in puts me on her bed and is cleaning me up.  Apparently three legs had to be shaved because they could not piggyback my IVWhat the fu**!  Lee is dressing my incision so I don't bleed all over her bed when she feels a lump at the end of the incision.

First Lee thinks this could be fluid and should she stick a syringe and suck off the fluid.  But as she palpitated the area is soft but pliable not like fluid.

Lee got back on the phone and hit redial and said tell that vet not to leave we were coming back in within five minutes.

The vet had taken out only part of my tumor had stitched me up with the rest of the tumor left at the end of my stitches.  Anyone with half a brain could feel it see it.
  The vet then tried to tell Lee it was a second tumor they could show her my tumor they had it seal in a bag.  Like my Lee would not want to see!  WRONG!  Lee has seen a hell of a lot of worse things than a tumor.

The vet said she could give me a local and take out the second tumor because I was still out of it enough so I got cut open again because she would not open the first incision and the rest of my tumor was taken out!  Lee wanted it also.  Lee told them to get a dressing on the incision also because I go potty outside and Lee did not want me getting infected.

In the office Lee lined the edges of my gooey tumor up!  Yep it was one tumor that had broken apart and the vet was so careless not giving sufficient attention or thought to avoiding harm or error.

Even if it had been a second tumor right at the end of the first tumor why would you stitch me back up and not take it out since I was under anesthesia.  Anesthesia is a risk in itself.

I was awake enough getting cut a second time with a local that when we left I could see my Lee was steaming mad and the vet knew to keep her dam mouth shut!

Today I would say don't travel down my road again
Till my Lee can see straight!
Lee is taking good care of me.

I, Sweet William The Scot, on our genealogy trip came home a different way.  We came upon the Village of Owensville in  Stonelick Township, Clermont County.
The first man to be called "Surgeon General" of the United States, Dr. Richard Allison lived here on a Revolutionary War military land grant, which was originally 441 acres.

We had never seen anything like it, why Troop Banners adorn both sides of the street and go both ways at the cross roads and down side streets.
Why we saw WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War.
These banners are over five feet tall.
You can go here and see each one who served from this small village.
They say Owensville is proud to honor our men and women who are or have served this country through our banner program.  There are over three hundred of these banners now.

Here is the video of the story that was on the news.
In the video you can truly see how many there are and how nice the little village looks.

Lee said look Wills how many from this rural midwest town put their lives on the line for our freedom.  It gave Lee the chills seeing the faces of so many brave souls.  We wondered how many came home to their families.
Our flag belonged to one who did not come home.

Thanks for being a friend

Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

Seuss Day

Well it's time for the Dr. Suess Book Club and here we are, all
 my non blogging friends, in the Dr. Suess Garden each with our favorite book or quote.

Now Nessa with the dirty nose who spends most of her days digging for gophers says her favorite book is Fox in Socks.
 "New socks Two Socks Whose Socks"
 because that is what her Mama says when she finds Nessa sleeping on her socks.  What dog does not enjoy a snooze on their peeps socks.

Now for my dear friend, Bentley the dapper wheaten Scot, why he says his favorite quote would be

"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory."
How many of us wish we just had one moment to do over. So cherish those moments and make the most of everyone that you are given I, Sweet William The Scot, says.

Now for Winslow, Bentley's baby bro, well he thinks the bestest Dr. Seuss quote would be

"To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world."

Yep our peep is our one person, our world, the one to whom we give our undeviating love.
Be kind to us for we love you so.
Are they not the cutest pair?

Now for my quote
I'm a Registered Reader Dog!
