Just in case you were wondering Sookie is fine. She is a little miserable having to wear the cone (eCollar), but her operation went smooth, and I opted to purchased the extra pain medication for her, which is putting her to sleep for long amounts of time.
When I picked her up she was so excited to see me. I wasn’t expecting that. When Marla got her operation done she was all groggy, and hardly walked around. Sookie was acting as if nothing even happened, and wanted to get home and eat.
She does look way skinner than usual, but I think that’s because they needed to shave her stomach and a section of her arm hair off.
She isn’t used to the cone and keeps bumping into stuff. She doesn’t understand that she shouldn’t be running, chasing her favorite ball under the table, or jumping on the bed, but we’re doing our best to keep her comfortable. The doctor did recommend that she wear the cone 24/7 for at least 5-6 days. She goes back next Thursday to get her sutures removed.
For the time being she is staying in Marla’s (laundry) room, and seems to enjoy it. I guess anything is better than her cage.
