Layla's Got Us On Our Knees

Last weekend Layla got stung by a bee. We found out how to handle the swelling and gave her a Benedryl that same day. Problem solved, right? NOPE! When we woke up this morning and the swelling had not gone down and was moving down her neck, we decided that maybe it was time to call the vet.

Poor Layla got an infection from the bee sting and it turned into a baseball-sized lump and she had to have emergency surgery! She came home with a cone around her head and two tubes sticking out of her neck. I can stomach a lot but for some reason poor Layla is bringing me to my knees wanting to gag every time I see her. She gets the tubes taken out on Tuesday. Until then, she belongs to the Conehead family. :)

P.S. I am sparing a picture because it is really THAT gross!

So sorry your poor pup needs medical attention, but it was good to hear from you on the blogspot. We've been reading about Meg and Sofia's various travels and wondering how your summer has been going. Miss you!

P.S. Thanks for sparing us the conehead photo!

Bring on the cone-head photo!

Seriously though I hope Layla is doing better!
