Ms. Stella is out of surgery minus what was left of her middle toe.
Dr. said they did lazer treatment on her toe (no idea what that means) and there was no bone infection.
Her footie is wrapped and she can come home tonight by 6pm.
I am so relieved the surgery is over and she can come home. She will require more trips to the vet for bandage changes but I'm happier with that than thinking she has to wait ten days before she gets seen again only to find if something else is wrong. She goes back this Friday.
I know she's a tough ol kitty but I do worry.
I may be holding an art auction to help defray the costs that have just hit the $1000 mark but right now I'm a bit overwhelmed and just want her home. Will update more this eve. if possible but certianly by tomorrow She will most certainly have something to say Cod love her!
THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING SO CARING AND SENDING PURRS & NOSE TAPS!
It's so comforting to read your kind words during all this, I don't feel so alone.
Clyde is still in bathroom confinement. He is simply a darling little bruiser of a mancat and I can't wait to post more about him and his story. Ollie knows there's another cat here but has no idea it's meant really to
torment be a buddy for him. Ollie has been acting out since he doesn't have Ms. Stella's firm paw giving him a whap every now and again. I'm sure he misses his brother and since he has no one to roughhouse with he's pretty frustrated; that's why we decided (after months of deliberation) to get him a buddy. Clyde was adopted from an event at Petco.
We are so thankful for your update and knowing Miss Stella is out of surgery and will be on her way home very soon. Now healing begins for REAL!!!ReplyDelete
We appreciate the update, continue to send purrs for her recovery. We hope that the laser surgery means a speedier healing time, compared to "regular" surgery, but like you, we're not quite sure what it means, at least in this instance.ReplyDelete
I sniffed my way over here from Katie's place... Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery.
Love, Ambassador Schonheit

Katie Isabella sent us over. Poor Ms Stella! Laser surgery is the best as its fast, neat and less traumatic than the old fashioned way. But the poor girl, will her balance be ok once she's healed? We're purring for her - and for you who must be a nervous wreck over this.ReplyDelete
