I wanted to thank you again for taking some of the stress out of this difficult time. Kenya is three days post-op and is doing well. She is very head-strong and wants to do things she probably shouldn't be doing….especially if I turn my back. But thats a good sign. She is becoming a bit more brave when it comes to getting around. She got on the couch by herself…of course when I wasn't looking. She is still sleeping a decent amount, but overall, doing well. She hasn't had a bowel movement yet, but I'm assuming that is due to being put under twice in one week. The past three days feel like they have been three months..lol.

Thanks for the update! Glad to hear Kenya is doing as well as can be expected.

Sounds like Kenya is doing well. Being head strong is part of the process. Trouble got that way when she wanted to do something I thought may have been a bit soon.
