Breathing a big sigh of relief
March 31, 2010

My Plumy came through her surgery w/ no problems at all! Phew!

I dropped her off at 8:00AM and got the call that she was awake by 10:45.

The Dr. said it was definitely pyometra. It was luckily not the big swollen infected kind because we caught it early while her cervix was still open and draining but she did have pockets of pus in the uterus and surrounding areas beginning to accumulate and would have done major damage if left untreated.

I am feeling totally confident now that we did the right thing.

She has to stay in the hospital overnight to be monitored and kept calm, but all looks well!!

Now they will have to listen to her most sad and pathetic howls while she is there, missing me. Hahahaha. She does not like to be separated from her Mama!

Ahhh......big exhale and sigh. Now we can move on to a most joyous Easter weekend.

Thanks for all the emails and prayers!

I am so happy that she came through the surgery alright! Poor thing, no wonder she was so miserable when she was in heat.
