I hope you are feeling much better also...
Hoping for a wonderful report from the vet tomorrow...and let's hope that Zoe's surgery is FIRST thing Thursday morning...as I mentioned before I'm not a patient one waiting for news.....
Hang in there, we are on the way to feeling GOOD again...YAY Zoe...

Did Zoe like her car ride or did she know what she was in store for?

I know you'll want to see Zoe but if her surgery is at 1 pm and will take a couple of hours she is going to be very groggy in the evening...I am guessing that she will have to spend the night...
don't forget her blanket, towel or tee shirt...or combination there of so she had the families scent on it for her when she wakes up.....
I know that you want her home with you but the first night I think would be good spent at the clinic...she'll be recovering and then in the AM much more ready to see her family and come home.....
I can't wait for tomorrow to come....
Thank you for posting on Mini's thread...the support of others from IMOM are SO helpful to the new people...

I am sure that she will have to wear a cone around her neck to keep her away from the incision...she'll probably be on pain pills and antibiotics...and she's going to need to be in the create for a few days to keep her quiet...then the will start feeling more like herself each day...
I'm figuring she'll stay the night tonight for sure...might even stay on Friday...but that's a good thing. I know you'll miss her, but she'll be safe and sound....til she can come back home to her family again...will check back later to see what's happening...Hugs, Judy

Does she have a "cone" on her head? Isn't she groggy from the anesthetic?
IF she does come home she will absolutely have to be crated...and I'm guess she won't be able to walk too well...as she is still under the effects of the surgery...
I would ask to talk to the vet only...not just the girls at the front desk...if you can think of any questions besides what I wrote...do ask....
She is going to have trouble standing to go potty....get a large towel and "sling" it under her belly, you will be able to support her weight and help her go potty.....she might just have to go pee pee anyway...I can't imagine she has any food in her.....
I think at this point...if they answer your questions you can do it...BUT, DO crate her...for her safety.....
I'm going to be home for about 45 more minutes...I'll check back to see what they say.....were they planning on her coming home tomorrow anyway?

I know that Zoe doesn't like it...but, it's for her own good...you must be strong...for her sake...
I'm hoping she sleeps the whole week end...less stress for you and that's a good thing for her....and the tee shirt is a good idea...you know how they can wiggle and squirm and you don't want her to irritate the incision.
I'll be checking in to see how things are going...GOOD LUCK...

If you're worried post, I'm going to bed now but will be up bright and early....don't forget if you're nervous tomorrow call the clinic and tell them what's going on....
you are going to have "goop" coming out of the drain, that's what it's for...but, if it's different that what they told you to expect...write it down and keep the list by your telephone when you call...make notes as I always forget what they tell me as soon as I hang up the phone.....

All of Judy's suggestions are awesome, we did these also when my boxer babies had surgeries. And DO CALL if you have problems, they are very willng to be helpful. Best luck! Thinking of you!

concerned we didn't get a report last night. Hope Zoe is feeling a little better and pain is being managed.
surprised to hear she was sent home so soon, but if nobody would be at the clinic overnight, it probably was wise. I'm sure she was happier being at her own home anyway.
Hi Maddy! I hope you are taking good care of Zoe.

it is just darn hard! Can you put Zoe's meds in a bit of a goodie? maybe a bit of soft cheese or something like that? Tucker likes that much better than when I have to just put it down his throat. Just a thought. I hope things are OK with the leakage. Tucker had alot of that from his wound. This time will pass and your life will be back to its usual pattern. Take a deep breath, know there are people thinking of you
