Our Neala

I was just getting a diet Dr Pepper to pop some Excedrin when the phone rang...

Grabbing it, "Hello?". My heart was pounding, my stomach twisting.

"Yes, is this 'Neala's Mom'?"

"Yes, this is."

SMALL TALK- it's my bane in these situations. I don't care for small talk.

"This is Dr Morgan. How are you doing?"

Really? How do you THINK I'm doing? I just want to know how NEALA is doing.

"Oh good, thanks." (Yeah, if good means having one's heart in one's throat- I'm good!)

"She's out of surgery and she's recovering just fine."

THAT is what I WANTED TO HEAR!!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Okay, so she seemed to have a hard time coming right out of the surgery, but that was due to her size and the fact that she got a little cold (mind you- they have heated surgery tables, this thing they wrap them in post operative to keep them warm and all of these other cool warming devices- but Neala isn't a typical size for their patients. Much harder to keep a tiny thing warm!). BUT once they managed to get her nice and cozy, I guess, she bounced back really fast and she is recovering nicely now!!!

And she might even come HOME TOMORROW!!!

Will keep you updated. Don't stop thinking and praying- recovery is still a scary stage. I will pop in tonight to visit her as long as I'm allowed.

  10. This is such great news! I have been thinking of her all day!! I cheered when I read the update! I am sure people that heard my squealing from my office must have thought I was crazy! All of the thoughts, prayers and purrs from Amaryllis and Gable continue as she journeys on to recovery. Kiss her for us all as soon as you can and tell her she has so many people out there that love her and think she is an amazing kitten!!!!!!

  23. I know just how you feel, when you get a call like that...you just want the news first! No chit chat!

    Aww, she was in a Bair Hugger...just like Brighton was when he was in the emergency hospital. These Sphynx and Rex get cold so fast and we are glad she got back to toasty warm!
