No further news from the 7pm call. She's still comfy etc etc and of course we'll be happy if the news stays like that.

 

Will be phoning the vet nurse at 10.45pm so will update after that.

 

We're busy making plans for changing furniture round in the living room to make space for a 'recovery bay' for her royal fuzziness when she comes home.

 

(OMG - when she comes home What's that going to be like...)

Tons of white light coming from PA for Darcy and hope and prayers for a swift recovery.

 

Bodie just had his amputation for osteo in August. Get lots of rest now before Darcy comes home. The first two weeks are the worst and there will be times during the night when she needs you so you won't get much sleep. But it DOES get better and before you know it, Darcy will be running and playing again.

I've been chatting on the phone to the vet nurse (not on the emergency number of course!) for the past 40 minutes. She went to check on Darcy earlier and found her tail doing it's wagging-at-the-tip thing :) She offered Darcy a teaspoon of food....but Darcy decided that she didn't want that and instead wanted what was in the tin itself :o So the nurse gave her various small amounts of food on a plate and in the end she had about three quarters of a tin (Darcy would have eaten more but of course she wasn't allowed to!). Apparently, Darcy wanted some tummy tickles ( :o ) and at one point, was making as if to try to sit upright :o She's not required any morphine (she has had other pain killers obviously but no morphine required :o ). And, off the record, it seems that Darcy may come home tomorrow :o

 

So. My face was generally like this :o for the whole 40 minutes :rolleyes::lol

 

I'm going to phone the vets at about 10am tomorrow and arrange the plan for the rest of the day.

 

Thanks again for all your good wishes. So far, they seem to be doing the trick.
