Update On Lily!

Hi everyone! Its Trixie! I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind thoughts on Lily's last post, where she announced that she was going to be getting spayed!
Well, the surgery is over, and Lily is safely home!
It went well. The nice people at the vet called our Mama exactly at 11:30 to let her know that Lily was okay and that everything was over. When Mama went to pick her up, they told her that Lily was a really good doggie and hadn't been chewing on her stitches or anything.
Then, the vet brought Lily out to Mama. First, Lily was happy to see Mama, and licked her and everything... and then, to Mama's surprise, she kept looking at the vet (it wasn't Dr. Amy from last time... in fact maybe it was a technician or something...) and kind of leaning towards her, with a happy look in her eyes! Mama laughed and said, "Oh, you like the vet?" The vet said, "Well, we were cuddling back there for a while." Isn't that sweet? The vet was cuddling with Lily and Lily liked her? Mama says she's going to be bringing Lily back to that doctor's office for all her medical needs. (I, on the other hand, have to keep going to the usual vet where Grampa takes me, but thats okay, because I like it there.)
Anyway, little Lily seems a little tired and dazed. She has been resting on our dog bed, but she keeps on getting up and wandering around slowly, looking bewildered. Mama says thats from the medicine the vet gave her!
The vet said Lily shouldn't jump around, and that she shouldn't eat a ton of food and drink a ton of water. So thats why Mama has been staying upstairs with Lily (to keep her from going up and down the stairs.) Mama also put some food and water in separate dishes upstairs, so Lily could get to them easily. I was a little worried that Mama was giving Lily t
oo much food and water right away... so I ate and drank most of it, just to be safe. I am such a good big sister!
Anyway, Mama is so relieved that Lily made it through!
Here's a pic she took of Lily a few minutes after she got home! Does she look a little "out of it?"

We will keep you updated! Thanks again for your pawsitive thoughts... it really made us all feel better when we read them the night before Lily's surgery!
See ya soon!

Great news! We're glad to hear Lily's surgery is over and she is doing fine (although still a little groggy).

Take it easy little girl, you will be running around in no time.

I'm glad to hear that everything went okay! Lily, remember to play the sympathy card for a few weeks! You can get whatever you want from humans after surgery.

So glad everything turned out well! I remember when I had that same thing at 5 months old... I was very tired for about a day, then I wanted to sprint all over (but I wasn't allowed). Hope you're feeling better soon! :)

Woofs & hugs, <3
