I see that no one responded, but to those who may have read and are interested in how Petunia made out today with her surgery, she did great.
I brought her in at 8:00 am and picked her up at 4:30. She was very sluggish the first hour after we got home, soon after she perked up and drank water from her bowl and nibbled on a few morsels of food from my hand, then walked to her pad and pee-pee'd. She then walked to the back door and rang her bell, I took her out and sure enough she made poo-poo. These are obviously good signs that all is well, I'm certain that she is on her way back to a full recovery. Just now as I was writing the last sentence, my eyes were off her and she jumped up on the sofa. Scared the heck out of me, it is the one thing that my Vet stressed, not to let her jump.
Anyway, she appears fine, her incision is short and the stitches look much smaller then I expected.
My wife new exactly what a onesie was and bought one today. So far Petunia hasn't touched her stitches, but if she does we will slip the onesie on her.
Can't wait for my little girl to get back to her playful little self.
