We picked her up at 5:30, after getting the all-clear from the doctor. The amputation went well, no complications. Before leaving, we scheduled a consultation with the oncologist for two weeks out, to discuss the first round of chemo. We were told that she was eating and drinking normally earlier today, although she had some trouble keeping things down. The doctor added an antimimetic to the list of Rxs to help with the nausea. She fell asleep almost immediately after getting into the car. (Consequently, the harness was instrumental in getting her into the house.) She is pretty doped up, and sleeping soundly — chasing dream-squirrels, her three paws twitching away.

    A d WOW! You picked her up same day as surgery! That’s hard!! But clearly Effie looks like her pain is managed for now, so that’s good.

      Morning, Sally et al! We brought her home the day after, which I now realize is not-at-all clear from the post. Thank you for reaching out with your encouragement and support. We will take you up on that! Love and hugs and blessings..
