In the hospital, I started feeling better day by day. I could get up and walk outside to the exercise and pee and poop area that the hospital had.
The hospital even had visiting hours! There were afternoon visiting hours (11 a.m. – 12 p.m.) , and evening visiting hours (5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.). Some people worry if their pets are in the hospital and they can’t visit them every day. I think we pets are just fine with that. There were some days when Mom and Dad couldn’t get to the hospital but that was fine because my doctor kept them informed about how I was doing, and also because I just needed a lot of rest. Of course when Mom and Dad came, I felt great, even though I was pretty tired and out of it. Mom even came right into my pen and sat down with me! It took a lot of effort because I was so groggy but I did manage to wag my tail now and then, which was my favorite way of saying that I was happy to see them.
I noticed and remember when Jane said, “Look! He’s wagging his tail!” and I could hear the excitement in her voice. I noticed that she had noticed and was glad.
