Bear's Surgery Went GREAT!!!!!

UPDATE: Bear just got home, here she is, kind of drugged up. She has a heart echo scheduled for 3/23 because the fluid in her lungs is not pneumonia. But that's a few days down the road, right now she needs to sleep and rest.
Thank you, Cat Blogosphere, for all your prayers, support and purrs. I know they made the difference.

Please keep little Bear in your prayers and thoughts today. She is having surgery to mend several large perforations caused by abcessed teeth and extract the teeth. Without the surgery, she will die in a month or so.

The vet says her chances look good, as all her vitals are great for a 17-year old. The only risk is that her lungs are full from the pneumonia.

Bear has been at the vet since 8 am and still no surgery. They called once to ask if the antibiotic had made a difference in her cough and to evaluate the cough today versus before the antibiotic.
It is 2:00 pm Central time and Bear is in surgery, the vet will call as soon as he finishes up.
Bear is waking up from surgery, doing great and will be ready to go home about 6 pm Central!!! :: exhales ::
