That must have been a rough recovery.
Took my pup to get spayed and the anesthesia triggered 2 weeks of grand mal seizures, where she would become stiff as a board, foam from the mouth and convulse. Imagine trying to hold down a 160lb pup that is out of her mind. She stayed in a vets ICU for that time and afterwards the bill ran about 5k. Now she is on meds for epilepsy which are $200 a month. Would have been around $800 but Costco has them cheap.
Worth every penny everyday I wake up to her snoring on her couch.
