Daisy Update – All Clear!!
I’ve been quite confident for the last couple of days that Daisy was going to make it. She was eating and pooping, exactly as the vet said she needed to. But I wasn’t going to relax until her check-up today, I needed to hear her vet say the words. Our vet is completely lovely, he’s the same vet who saved Maisie life, and he clearly cares deeply for his patients. When he grinned and said that she is going to be fine, a huge weight lifted from my shoulders and the fog cleared from my mind.
She’s going to be fine!!
The most magical words I ever did hear.
There is still a slight chance of infection, as with any major operation, but she’s on antibiotics and I’ll be closely watching her energy levels and feeling if she’s warm. The most important thing is that those two little intestine ends patched up together. They’re pumping along and doing their job.
As soon as I left the vet the exhaustion hit me. It’s been a long and stressful week, and I haven’t slept well. I’ve scheduled the giveaway prize posts for tomorrow, and I’m taking the day off blogging. I’m going to lay in bed all day with my book and my cats, and give them all lots of kisses.
The generously of the cat loving blogging community continues to amaze me. Nearly half her bill will be paid, I can’t tell you how much a relief that is. Thank you!!
