First, her surgery was delayed about four hours because a dog was hit by a car and the surgeon was busy trying to save him/her. (The dog didn't make it.) Then Lainie's surgery was delayed at least another four hours because a cat was hit by a car. (The cat survived.)
The next morning when I came to pick her up, I could hear her loudly protesting in the back. They told me that she had been biting the bars of the little cage and demanding to be let out.
She was hurt all day yesterday. We both cried a lot. I had to block off the stairs so she wouldn't hurt herself. I also had to sleep on the floor with her because she couldn't get onto and off of my stupidly high bed and she cries if I leave her by herself.
Lainie is doing much better today. She is back to her terrorist self, though she is sleepy from the pain meds.
So thanks to everyone who cared. (Really.)
