Thank you all so much for your encouraging words! Rylee is doing SO GOOD!!! She woke up, ate breakfast, was mad that there wasn’t more breakfast, ate her cheese (with meds in it), was mad that there wasn’t more cheese, BUSTED OUT OF HER EX-PEN which we forgot to latch, dragged her daddy outside, peed, pooped, and hopped back to bed.
I’m so excited about the poop! We hadn’t been expecting her to poop anytime soon because of the pain meds. She is on Rimadyl twice per day and Gabapentin three times per day for pain, as well as an antibiotic (Clavamox) twice per day. She had an infusion of Nocita (a local anesthetic) around the incision site, which will keep working for about 72 hours, so I’m expecting her to be a bit more uncomfortable tomorrow after that wears off. But her attitude couldn’t be better! She’s just such a happy girl and I’m so relieved to see that hasn’t changed.
I can’t thank y’all enough for being here! This site is a godsend!
Yeeehaw! That’s the hoppiest news I’ve heard all day, thanks for sharing. And I love love love that she was able to get Nocita, it’s a terrific new pain drug.
