Stare at the stove for 5 minutes to make SURE it's off and I turn the main switch to the house off... I'm crazy I have to double check everything all the time and nothing bad has ever happened to me so I have no reason to be this insane

    You have all the right to worry but also seeing this from an outside kind of way... this is completely different. If Winston is healthy there is no reason why he wouldn't do well during the operation if it's needed. I'll ask our vet in December how deep they have to sedate her for the burning thingy, but if she needs it they're gonna do it at the same time as her hips are getting done... she's booked for December 23. I'm stressing already, if anything happens to her I'll cancel x-mas for the rest of my life. I do know though that certain things needs to be done for her to be happy, but it's still hard... right?

    How long is it still before Winston turns 1 year old? Didn't the vet say it should wait till he's over 1 year?
    So funny that you mentioned your house rituals... I just left my burner on the other night, and the stove going after dinner was done!!! I haven't done that in YEARS... my mind is going!!! Of course in my house, I'm the only one who seems to be concerned about these things... I can't go to bed until I have checked all the doors, put the outside lights on, alarm system etc... the hubby and kids can relax no matter what and could care LESS!!! I think women have OCD because men & kids seem able to let it all goooo.... LOL

    Winston is healthy, but most of my anxiety stems from Bella dying after her spay... a normal procedure I was in NO way prepared for that news...

    Winston will be a year old on Dec 14th, so I do have some time. I just know how crazy the holidays get so I would like to have a head start on this to get ready... mentally that is!!!

    Oh I'm sorry for your anxiety for Boeboe... I'm sure she will be fine It's so hard NOT to be stressed out about the "what if's?!!" but at least we have each other to lean on!!! You know I will always be there for you...

    See it's good we're a "little" OCD no one else would notice the stove being on... My husband doesn't focus on such stuff either... he just gets up from his chair and says I'm going to bed and goes to bed, lol, not even asking me if he needs to lock or take dogs out or anything. Same when leaving the house, he just goes out and sits in the car and wonders why I'm taking so long... I'm like SERIOUSLY!!! They're living the good clueless life

    I believe Boeboe will be fine, she's done really well under operations in the past but as you say... there is always these thoughts about "what if", I hope the vet says she doesn't need the hip operation yet but also it's a bigger risk doing it the older she gets... It's really so hard when wanting to protect and doing what's best for them isn't the same thing

    I think by December you'll feel better about this whole thing, it's really not a big operation and it may not be needed at all It is so great to have this forum, everyone is really here for the best of our furkids and it's rare to find a place where you get support even when you mess up like I did when my kids found glass in the garden. I felt SO bad for not checking properly before letting them out but you made me feel better about it Thank you for that
