Four hours asleep and counting. Dinner was meant to be 2.5 hours ago. She is utterly exhausted. I wish I could take off her cone, but I just can't take any chances she goes after that wound. I'm trying not to wake her up when I check on her. I will need to wake her up at 10 to take her out and give her all her meds. I'm wondering if I'll have to carry her sweet little self. In case I haven't mentioned it, I am so, so glad she is home.

Millie's Mom - thank you for that link. I didn't know it was associated with VEC.

I'm sure that she's really tired, but I think it has a lot to do with her being relieved she's home. She probably feels comfortable and is totally relaxed. I bet she didn't sleep very well at the vet, but now that she is in familiar surroundings, she can let go and really sleep.

I'm so happy for you and her that she's home. I always feel that both people and animals heal a lot faster in their own homes.

Feeling your pain and pulling so hard for Tesia. Her beautiful sugar face is so sweet. Good thoughts, prayers and hugs going your way.

So glad for you that she is now home. Sleep is restorative so it will help her body to heal. She was probably so relieved to be home again that she just relaxed into a deep sleep. I hope you can do the same.

Thank you for your Thanksgiving wishes. This is a very special holiday for me.

..... have a Golden day

So HAPPY to see that Tesia was able to come home!!!

My girl always sleeps very deeply when she comes home from a hospital stay. I think we all know we'd rather sleep in our own bed/homes than away, especially when we're not feeling well.

We just recently dealt with a very resistant infection. It was frightening because we only had 2 drug choices - one of which had so many side effects they really didn't recommend it. No doubt, with your love and care, her lust for life and the help of medicine, she'll have the best chance at recovering from the infection.

Fingers and toes crossed that you two have a lovely weekend. I'm sure the staff at VEC will enjoy those treats!

I agree with every bit of this. I think she probably slept with one eye open the whole time she was there, not because she was scared, but because so much was going on around her. She was in the open, large dog area, which are just three walls, open to the room where all those freindly techs are walking by with food and treats and a friendly pat - but also other dogs' crying and cats meowing loudly. I think she was probably always a bit nervous that someone was going to come and turn her over and poke at her wound, too.

I hope being home helps her heal faster. She is still less than 100% for sure. I think some good, hard sleep will do wonders.
