Nothing But Love in Her Heart

Maybe Better? Maybe Home?

Fallon’s doing better, her doctor just called.  She *might* be able to come home tonight.

 

We visited last night and took some tasty yogurt, scrambled eggs, and bacon  She ate some yogurt and some eggs, no bacon (I would have prioritized differently), and seemed more relaxed.

 

When the doctor called tonight, he mentioned that had continued through the night, she was continuing to eat a little and was more comfy.  She has significant bruising (greyhounds are delicate creatures), and her incision is weeping a bit.  They wrapped her chest differently to give it more pressure.

 

He asked how much home nursing we would be able to/want to provide.  I said we can do anything.  I just think she’ll be more comfortable here.  It would entail putting warm towels on her incision, etc.   I can do whatever.

 

We left it that I’d call in the early afternoon, if she continues on a positive course we might be able to bring her home this afternoon.

 

Fingers crossed!

Chasing kitties again soon?

More to come…

    Okay…had to do a “test” as I was unable to post on any blogs yesterday. I would write my reply and POOF, gone!

    Anyway, I’ll just replynto this current one now on Fallon!! YAY!!! Fallon is showing improvement…slooooowly but surely!!

    I agree, she will do so much better at home. Besides, you are more than capable of giving her the care she needs! And you have youre extended family here “on call” should you have any questions!!

    Yep, the brusing some seepage, no appetite…all “normal”. Usually a pressure wrap takes care of the drainage. Sometimes some additional care has ro be given if it leaks a lot. No viggie though.

    Can’t wait to hear about the homecoming!!! Definitely putting out vibes for the homecoming tonight!!! You’ve got this!!

    Hugs

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    PS…Fallon will be chasing kitties in no time! 🙂
