12wks old...and FINALLY consult day has arrived!
Lentil's surgery is tentatively scheduled for May 28th!!! They explained that he will probably spend the night after surgery, but they are very hopeful that everything will run smoothly. It's so nice to have such confident doctors on your side! Now my only question is if they will let ME also spend the night :) Bean and I have never been apart....and I'm surely not above sleeping in a kennel to be with him!
We've had such an eventful last 2 days!- Sunday started by Lentil and I joining a group of children at Salon L'Etoile in Jenkintown. CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) brought these children and their families together to let them have a day of beauty which was donated by the salon. It was absolutely incredible- the kids were all so amazing! I have never been in a place and surrounded by so much strength! Bean had a blast, and I think the children really enjoyed him....they can relate to him and the road he has ahead better than any of us! They were so sweet- the kids were helping ME! Talking about their surgeries and experiences, and letting me know that we will be just fine!
It's because of these children that I was able to calmly listen to the doctor today and not worry so much! They gave us/continue to give us the strength to get through this! Lentil even was offered some dry kibble! He's a bit confused by it, but he was able to swallow some pieces safely! So now a new adventure.... offering more and more each day and hopefully rotating between tube/kibble. This is another huge milestone, and I'm so excited! I promise to keep everyone posted on the progress! I'm happy to say that the perfect size kibble turned out to be Orijen Red Meat! So thank you, Champion Pet foods, for making a kibble that my baby can tolerate!
Thank you again for all of the support! We are all in this adventure together! Now full speed ahead to Lentil Fest!!! xoxo
