See that wrap on my ankle? That's my pain patch, and it is FABulous puppers!
Better than 87 pitchers of margaritas!
Ma thinks when it wears off tomorrow, I might have a different idea!
Today I got a towel and tried to play, butts Ma said 'not yet'.
I gots my appetite back! At furst Ma was HAND FEEDING ME!
I tried my best SAD PUPPY DOG EYES, and it worked! BOL!
I am still getting LOTS of small snacks, instead of my usual meals.
Drinkin' plenty of waters too.
When the surgical nurse was giving Ma all the post-surgical instructions,
she said, "Don't be surprised if Ruby doesn't poop for a while, that's normal on the pain patch"
Ma almost LOL!
Ma said that I have never had a problem in that department!
And she was right ~ as soon as I got home I pooped. BOL!
Anyhu, enough abouts poops!
I thinks it's time for a nap.......take over Ma
Okay ~ Ruby's Mom here ~
she is doing SO much better than I expected. I am really pleased at her progress so far!
Her incision looks SCARY, but good. she doesn't mind me looking and checking a few times a day.
She is doing well in her inflatable collar. I got her a "Doggy After Surgical shirt", which she was okay with, but she didn't like the back of it because it wasn't enough leg room for her. ( I was thinking of a t-shirt like Lightning's Mom suggested, but her incision goes ALL the way to her vajayjay! ) It's a great idea if your pupper or kitteh has to have any surgicals and a cone freaks them out. Just not right for her.
I likes the inflatable collar cause I have a pillow where ever I go!
(It really does make a good chin rest!)
True, hey ~ I thought you were taking a nap??
I was, butts I was bored. And I thought I heard the UPS guy......he always brings me something.
No. not today. Go back to your bed, I make sure you don't miss anything important....
I want to ask you all for some POTP for Ruby. She is in surgery right now for removal of some tumors.
She also is going to have to have a full hysterectomy.
Because she is older, 11 yrs next month, it is touchy.
She was fixed, but only her tubes tied, and this can cause a problem.
Please send all your prayers and healing thoughts her way.
I will update when I hear any news....
Just talked to the surgeon, and Ruby handled the surgery well.
Both tumors removed, clean lines on one, iffy lines on other, but both small.
Lymph nodes are a little enlarged, but will keep an eye on them.
Uterus was filled with fluid, but not infected because it was caught in time.
She will stay the night at the ER vets, and will get an update in the morning.
Just a note:
ALWAYS go with your gut!! I thought that I was over reacting to her not really wanting to eat. Her stools were still soft, and she was just not acting like herself.
I was contemplating waiting until Monday to get her checked, to see if she improved. That would have been bad.
I called our regular vet, but they were all booked up ~ I chose not to wait and take her to the ER vet just to make sure......
Always follow your gut.
Thank you all for the POTP!
Please keep sending it!!! I know she is getting it
Thank you all so much! UPDATE!
Went to go see Ruby today, she is doing well ~ vitals are good, temp good, but she is still not eating, so she is staying one more night, just to be on the safe side.
I brought freeze-dried chicken, so they can try and get her to eat that, fingers crossed!
She looked so sad in the crate, it broke my heart!
But, I hope she will be feeling better tomorrow, and will eat something.
Please keep the POTP coming, and send all the healing vibes and prayers her way!
Me: Where were you?? There I was ROACHIN' and ROLLIN' in my tunnel,
then you were GONE!
Ma: I was watering the plants on the side of the house ~ I was on the other side of the fence.
It was only for a couple of minutes.
Me: That's like FUREVERS in doggie time!
You owe me 87 treaties.
CLICK ON THE BADGE!
for more FABulous selfies!!
