Violet Update  
Well, Violet is doing good post-surgery. I was really hoping that she might get some out before, but she only threw up a little bile last night. I barely slept because I had a huge fear that if she threw some up they would get stuck and she'd start choking...so every sound she made I would shoot away and check on her. She had a total of 10 coins : 5 quarters, 2 pennies, 2 dimes, and 1 nickel....and I honestly don't know what moved her to the point where she wanted to eat that. Her EKG because of her heart was perfect throughout the entire surgery and she was walking around this afternoon inside her kennel at the vet. We obviously have strict directions for her feedings and stuff. We were given special food to give her for the next 5 days and she's on her pain meds and antibiotics. I think it hurt her too bad to pee, but when I got home from grad school/run at the gym I took her potty and she peed. 

I honestly feel so horrible. I hate seeing the huge cut on her tummy and I feel so bad crating her. I really feel like she's crying and I just want her to lay with me. Last night she slept on the air mattress with my fiance (the vet said not to let her jump around) but I just don't want to risk her getting hurt. So now she is slightly whimpering because we put her in the crate with a ton of blankets and her soft bed and I'm about to start crying again. She still has some drug effects so we're really just trying to get her to lay down and sleep, but she keeps fighting it and wants to stay up. 

I can't wait until this recover period is over everything can be back to normal. I'm so thankful that she came out okay and that she's doing great now. Thank you for all of your wishes and prayers - it really helped. I just hope nothing like this happens again, and I hope none of you have take your babies in for surgery.


I'll post tomorrow...maybe some pictures...she just looks so sad...I really hope she doesn't have another seizure, but she doesn't seem to have anxiety like she did last time....::fingers crossed::
Right now I am at: home
I am feeling: sadsad
I am listening to: news

I'm glad it all went well -- I'm sure that as long as you can keep her still she'll be just fine :D

Yeah I almost had a heart attack this afternoon b/c she got in the stance she does before she jumps on my bed...

she seems to be doing really good.

Poor little girl, what a traumatic experience to go through for $1.52! She will be fine -- just confused and in discomfort now and doesn't understand why. Times like these I wish we could explain to them why we put them through things like vet visits and the like. She'll be alright, just keep an eye on her and try not to worry too much.

Thank you :-)

I know...$1.52 turned into $700....but I honestly expected it to be a couple grand...so I was happy about that portion. She is doing good and is even getting bored with just sitting around, so she thought she'd be a devil and start scratching her back like the nutso dogs do.....::sigh of relief:: this dog is going to make me stroke out. I wish they would listen too.

Seeing as I used to eat coins when I was a wee little things, I'd just like to point out that coins are rather shiny and enticing. Maybe that's why she ate them?

And don't feel guilty about having to crate her. You'd feel even worst if you don't and she rip her stiches out.

Yeah, i was thinking about the shiny factor regarding the change...I just don't know how she got past the taste...I'm very lucky though she didn't choke to death on the quarters.

True about the crating...and now I'm starting to think that maybe she should be crated....I'm debating on it....I think I'm going to look into a crate for my room for when we leave, but my mom is possibly going to be getting a new job where she would set her office up at home, so hopefully she would be here...but the crating idea after this is really starting to grow on me.

Thanks! :-)
