June 20th: Day of the SURGERY
Gawwwwwd I was freakin nervous. If you guys don't know already, I am very nervous when it comes to hospitals, even if it's not me who's getting a checkup or whatever. I just feel very weird/eery in places like this. I'm not scarred of needles, knives, or anything, it just makes me nervous.
The nurse says that she will at least be staying overnight w/ them... problem is, she's never been alone anywhere w/out me or my dad/mom. She get's very scarred & anxious. I know she's going to be in good hands, but I can't stop worrying about her. It's been 9 years now that I've had her. I got her when she was barely 3 weeks old. She's my little darling.
I wanted her to have her buddy, PenPen but they didn't allow it ಠ_ಠ
Ain't she cute?! She turned 9 yrs old on June 4th ♥
I had to wake up @ 6 a.m. to get ready
and make sure I get my wallet & documents for her. Then leave to get her at the vet's by 8 a.m.
June 21st: RETURNING HOME
I went to pick up my baybie at 12pm. Poor thing! She has a funnel (cone thingy)
on her so that she doesn't scratch/mess up her sutures & take off her med patch.
She needs to be mellow, but not depressed. No jumping, running, very little walking.
When I saw her I almost cried! She was whining & crying when she saw me.
I was surprised the surgery & meds all together was only $1,800.
♥ I'm so happy she's home! Although it was a hard choice,
I know that I made the right choice for her to have this surgery.
My parents & I argued everyday until the surgery day. Omma didn't want
her to have the surgery cuz of the pain afterwards, but Appa & I wanted her to, or else
she won't be able to play or walk the way she used to. She's too cheerful & outgoing to
just sleep all day. ♥
She has 3 meds to take everyday. Cephalexin, Rimadyl, & Tramadol
for pain, swelling, & infection.
Genie (8 yrs old) waiting in the truck w/ Omma to see her big sis.
She was crying & whining becuz she was so excited to see her sis ♥
This is when I just got her... the vet brought her out & went over the meds/things I have
to do for her rehab. She's still drowsy from the anesthetics. She will be all day.
( ﾟ,_ゝﾟ) Look at her poor butt!!!!
It's half shaved off. Only the right side is shaved off.
Mann! I just can't imagine the pain she's in!
On her left leg, they put a morphine patch to help with the pain.
Finally home! She was crying the whole way home! (￣へ￣)
But she was happy to see her little sis, Genie. Genie was also super happy.
Will do my best on her rehab!
I'll be updating on her alot from now on.
