I came home, yesterday at about 4:00 and Poppy has been watching over me since I came home. The nurses said I did just fine and when they went to lift me into the Aire-mobile, I jumped in by myself! Then, when we got home, Dad came out to lift me out, but once again, I jumped out by myself! Everyone was a little worried because they heard that spaying is hard on a 5 year old. I guess I showed them!
Mom gave me some water and food, last night, but I didn't want any. Mostly, I wanted to stand around looking pitiful because it kind of hurt to lay down. This morning, I am laying down a lot and not doing my usual bitey-face with Poppy. Penny and Poppy keep sniffing me, but Mom and Dad keep making them get away from me. When we first got home, Mom was reading the invoice that the vet gave her and she realized that they didn't give her any pain pills, even though they were on the invoice. She called the v-e-t and they apologized for forgetting. Now, Mom has to drive all the way back up there, this morning, to get them for me. I really need them, but I'm not sure how they plan on getting them into my tummy since I still don't want to eat. I looked at my food, this morning, and I stood in front of the bowl for a few minutes, but I'm just not hungry yet!
Maybe I'll feel better once Mom gets back here with my pain pills! I'm not licking or biting at my stitches, so I don't have to wear a lampshade...at least, not YET! I'm waiting for nurse Lacie to get here with her smoothie mix...I'm sure that will perk me up!
Well, everybuddy, I'm going to lay back down now!
