Today is the day!

Well, today is Kodi's day to get neutered. I took him in at 8:00, and his surgery was at 9:00 They called me at 10:00 to tell me that everything had gone fine, he was being extubated, and they expected to have him back in a cage (with his blanket and stuffed animal from home) within 10 minutes or so. He should be ready to be picked up at 1:00.

In the mean time, I've washed and dried all his blankets and crate pads so everything is soft clean and fluffy, and I went out and bought a package of Onesies in case we need them.

I miss my little boy!

Thanks, everyone! Kodi is home, and feeling pretty sorry for himself. He was pretty groggy when I picked him up... I didn't even both putting his car harness on him for the short ride home. He just lay on a blanket beside me.

When we got home, he just wanted to immediately go into his crate and lie down. At first he was really whining, and I was worried that he was in a lot of pain. (although they gave him a pain shot before the anesthesia wore off) I got down on the floor and just kept patting him and talking to him until he fell asleep. He's sleeping now.

I was surprised that they said I can't even give him any water until 8 tonight. Then he can have water and half his usual supper. Tomorrow he can start back with regular meals. They also gave me pain pills that I can give him starting tonight for 4-6 days as needed.

KSC - Onesies are baby underwear that other people have suggested for protecting the wound rather than having to put an e-collar on them. They didn't send him home with an e-collar because they said he seemed to be leaving the incision alone without it. If he keeps leaving it alone, I'll return the onesies to Walmart. But I want to make sure he's still leaving the stitches alone after he's more awake.

So glad to hear he's home and resting. I'm nervous about Kipling's day tomorrow that's for sure. Thanks for clarifying why the onesies - I understand now. I hope Kodi has a nice long rest now.
