October 24, 2013 Thursday Afternoon

Last night before going to sleep Vito's wart / growth on his back started bleeding.  It has been two years since we notice this wart or skin tag type thing and the vet has been keeping an eye on it.  Last night I noticed it was not looking good and when I touched it it leaked fluid and then blood.  Got the bleeding to stop and went to sleep around 10:30 PM.  Here is a picture of Vito and his growth.

This morning I was up by 6:30 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Called the vet at 7:45 AM and they had an opening for 8:30 AM to see a doctor about his growth.  Tony and I took Vito to the vet and scheduled surgery for Tuesday to have it removed.  While he is under we will have his teeth cleaned and hair cut short to the skin.  Last time he had surgery she cut his hair so nice and it is the only time he will let you, when he is under.  The vet bill with blood test and his eyes tested was $296, the surgery on Tuesday is estimated to be $850 - $1300 depending on what they find and how bad thing go.  So we will dig into savings again for the dogs.  I figure he is 10 years old, blind, diabetic and has no sense of smell anymore that this is the last big cost for him.  I will have to not feed him on Tuesday morning yet give him 2 units of Insulin.  He usually gets 5 units.  And have him to the vet by 7:30 AM.  The doctor also put him on an antibiotic starting today just in case the growth is infected.  Got home by 10 AM and spent the day just watching TV, listening to music, and doing things around the house.  A nap would have been nice but I had too much on my mind to sleep.  Tonight Tony's nephew / employee is coming over to see me feed the dogs, give Vito his shot, and have supper with us to see how the dogs get along and their behavior.  Hopefully they will like him and someday soon we can go on a trip for a day or more.  Will spend tonight watching TV from the DVR and maybe a movie with the nephew.
