MAMA'S HOME!!!!

She's home, she's home, she's home, she's home!!!!!!! Mama finally came home, YAY!! We are sooo happy to see her & have been giving her lots of loves!

Mama said the surgery that was supposed to be 1 hour long took longer than 2 hours. The 3 small incisions turned into a teeny one in her navel & a 7" incision from her navel to her......well......her.......you know. She was in recovery for over 2 hours because her oxygen level kept dropping to about 80%. And the overnight hospital stay turned into a 4 day stay. Her bean v-e-t said that on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the worst, her surgery was a 9. He said she had tons of scar tissue & her uterus was covered with tumors. When he first saw inside, he thought she was full of cancer, but thankfully the tumors were all benign. It's been a really tough week & Mama is still in quite a bit of pain, but we want to thank you all for your thoughts & prayers. We hope to get caught back up with you all soon.

I'm so sorry you had to go through such a ordeal! I can relate to this somewhat as the Dr. has found some cells in me that don't look right. I've already had a full hysterectomy, but your post gives me hope. I am really glad you are home safe and sound and back to your kitty family! They were so worried about you! I hope you have a smooth recovery!
