Well, at any rate I am thankful the procedure went well. And rest well. No wheel chair races in the hallway today.
The surgery went well, but they had to do extra procedures. So she will be in for a couple of more days than she mentioned originally. So Shrek brought in her laptop.

I never take surgery for granted. Something can go wrong in any surgery. I go into it knowing that I might not come out of it, and that's just God's plan for me. After my colostomy surgery, even the surgeon said he didn't think I'd make it. I was really a mess. I have been told that I take longer than normal to wake up after surgery. Now I tell them that beforehand so they know what to expect.

My friend's son died from surgery for a broken elbow. Look at the young girl in the news who is brain dead as a result of tonsil surgery.

Thanks for the update Addie. I just read PF's update in the MIA thread. Good to see over-all it went well.

Well it is sure nice to come here and see that Cat and Fiona are doing well. Keep it up ladies!

I am usually not up this early but had a rough night. Then I got up to see that Violet had been sick twice and was hiding under the table. Poor pup hates being sick or doing her business inside. I was taking her to the vet today anyway for a growth on her leg so at least I know I can get her in.

It wasn't too bad snow blowing this morning. It was only 6F, but it was a "dry" cold, lol. Seriously, the wind wasn;t blowing and that made it nice. And I even got to see the sun come up to semi-blue skies. Right now it is very bright outside. Sunglasses time.
I'll be taking Pierce into the vet here shortly. He has a siezure New Year's Eve. At his age it's hard to say what caused it. Siezures typically start at a younger age.
I hope the idiots aren't out driving today. I want to be the only idiot.

You're welcome Whisk. Glad to help. It seems it has been a busy time for the medical profession.

Thanks Josie, much better today. they took the Patient Controlled narcotics out since I wasn't using it very much. The catheter is out, yay!!!! One IV out. Not hungry, but am drinking lots of water. I am also allowed to go for walks as much as I want. I think I will get a pain pill before I wander off.

I'm glad you are getting your stitches out today! How is your hand and wrist feeling?

Love you more!
Fiona

I was thinking frozen turkey bowling.

Shrek brought me the laptop since it wasn't going to be an overnighter. Can't wait to see him this morning.

I hope Pierce is okay! Be careful driving.

OK then. No checking on other patients while you're there.
