Girl bean report

We are so very grateful for the purrayers and good thoughts that you all sent our way. We left home at 8 am yesterday morning, and didn't get home until 1:30am this morning. We got to the dentist about 10:30, they were going to try to see her asap. At around 12:00, I asked if they were going to see her or not, they called the dentist to take a moment to look at the girl bean, he told us that it was not dental related for us to take her to the ER immediately. We drove across town to the Children's Hospital ER. We checked in at about 12:30 pm, and started the wait. We waited for about an hour and a half before they took us in to triage, they gave the bean girl some Tylenol and told us to go back out into the waiting area. We finally go to go into a room to see the doctor at about 6:30 or 7:00 pm. They took blood and waited for the results and decided to do a Cat Scan. The results showed that one of the bean girls salavatory glands was blocked and an infection had set in around the gland, they called it celulitus. They gave us a prescription for antibiotics and told us to get her lemon candies to suck on. We stopped at a 24-hour Wal-Mart that the hospital had told us had a 24-hour pharmacy, come to find out , no they did not have a 24 hour pharmacy. We got back on the road and came straight home. We were really glad to see the porch light on the house. We got her prescription filled today, therefore she is on the road to recovery. We were told at the ER to check in with our family doctor on Monday, yep he is going to get an ear full from the girl beans Daddy.
Again, we really appreciate all the thoughts and purrayers from each and everyone of you.

I'm glad to hear it wasn't anything too serious! So sorry to hear that you had to go through all of that to get a diagnosis.

Sending healing purrs and vibes the bean girl's way. I hope she feels better soon.

I's glad she's gonna be ok, but what a day! If it's that far to the tooth doctor, the reglar doctor shoulda been more concerned.
I do Cat Scans in our puter room. Mom's got a scanner by the windo an I sit on it.
Our vet had big signs sayin they do Cat Scans an Lab Werk, wif pictors of a cat an a woofie.
