Sophie Is Doing Quite Well!

Your prayers worked. I should have had more faith that they would. The doctor commented that she's never had a more stable a patient. Thank you everyone who said a prayer or sent a warm thought. I honestly felt calm this morning, and usually I'm quite a mess.

Everything went well. She's awake and feeling no pain right now. I'm able to get her as soon as 4 pm. They're going to give her a soft e-collar. The V-E-T wants me to keep her away from the other cats for 5 days. Gosh, that would be hard. I would have to keep her with me, for both her and my frame of mind. The other cats won't get as much attention from me with that set up. I'll play it by ear. If she's needing a lot of pain meds and she's groggy, then I'll definately keep them away. Or if they want to hassle her at all, they'll be removed from my bedroom.

Last night, I made them all start fasting at 9 pm. At 2 am I had Jake on top of my bed screamming at me for food. I swear he has a hidden meezer inside him. He can make very annoying demanding meezes. Of course, I'm the sucker mom who obeys nearly his every wish. He keeps to a regular schedule, so I understand why he felt it necessary to tell me that I was neglecting my duties in the middle of the night.

Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. I'm very very greatful. You all deserve hugs. I'm sure Sophie has some sweet purrs for you all also.
Love Lynn (Tyler, Sophie, Jake, Cookie and Kali's mom)

We are so glad Sofie's surgery went well and that it is over! No matter how many times you go in for surgery, it's always scary for the patient and the Mom. Continued fast recovery. Just enjoy being spoilt! Milk it for all it's worth too, like I do. hehehe!

We're glad Sophie's surgery went very well! How great!

Tee hee. Maw gave up on taking our foods away when one of us has to have surgery. She just boards us overnight at the vet so they can take the food away. It's too hard with 10 cats to take food away.

We're glad to hear that Sophie is doing well. 5 days separate from the others, though? That sounds hard to do.
