Your Morning Victoria 
4th-Aug-2011 10:08 am
Oh, bitchcakes.
Got the morning check-in. She's still a bit logy, but that could be an artifact of the Fentanyl and/or anesthesia. The concern is that she hasn't gotten up and moving yet; she peed herself a little in the night rather than go to the litterbox. And she hasn't shown interest in food yet, but again, that could be related to anesthesia/painkillers.

So. Status is: they still think she's fine to go home today, but they want to keep her under observation for another few hours. They'll give me a call around 1 or 2. I'll update this post with whatever they tell me then so I won't be spamming all y'all.

kittycyborg is hoppin' with some awesome stuff - go check it out!

Now I figure out what I'm doing with my day.

EDIT at 5pm: The Torbutt has landed! She is very shaved and safely ensconced in the crate she'll need to live in til we know she's healed.

She does not want to be in the crate. She is making this very clear.

We saw the X-rays, and augh, her humerus was... not exactly shattered, but close to it. Frankly, it amazes me that they were able to put it back together like they did. Mad props to them.

She's hobbling, and the paw on that leg just dangles, and I hate that. But she's home. And hopefully she'll eat something.

We see lack of appetite with fentanyl at my hospital all of the time. I hope that is all it is, for both your sakes. Keep me posted!

Fingers crossed. Poor baby. Our tiny cat reacts badly to anesthesia and comes out of it slowly; hopefully that's all this is for Victoria.

Awww, just caught up on LJ and therefore this story. Sending many good thoughts to Victoria and you and her other loved ones. So hard to see the furbabies hurting, even when you know it's going to be okay soon.

Welcome home, Tori! So glad to hear you've come through your surgery and can now recuperate in the comfort of your own home! *skritches to Tori* *hugs to her mommy*

After a particularly bad surgery, my sister once had to lock her youngest cat up in the laundry room to keep her from jumping on things for a couple of days. (Well, it was supposed to be a laundry room, but she didn't have appliances, so it was really just a small room off of the kitchen.) Kitty did not appreciate this. But she got better, which was the important thing.
