Pooky's Close Call
Pooky had a close call last week. His mama, Skylar, let him go for a spend-the-night party at a friend's house and somehow, Pooky suffered a serious injury to his throat. Thankfully, "Dr. Sherry" was on call and rushed Pooky into surgery. In the first photo you can see Pooky having a CAT scan to determine the extent of his injuries. It was serious. Pooky was prepped for surgery - in the 2nd and 3rd photos you can see him hooked to a heart monitor with the surgeon's equipment laid out alongside him.
Although it was touch-and-go for a while, "Dr. Sherry" successfully stitched Pooky's neck wound and he spent the rest of the weekend recuperating in the hammock on the hospital's lovely grounds. After he was released, a grateful Pooky made a thank you card for "Dr. Sherry" with her favorite sunflower on the front.
The Crafters' Guild Place extends its thanks to "Dr. Sherry" and her staff for taking such good care of my friend Skyler's BFF.
...and, Pooky, be more careful when you are playing with friends!
