**Update to this post at the bottom.
I have gotten several emails asking about Ruby so I thought I would give you an update.
To be honest, I am not sure how she is doing. Slow, I guess would be the best answer. She can’t get on the couch (her current favorite spot) by herself and gets embarrassed to “ask me to put her up there” so sometimes she just goes and lays in her kennel a bit. This picture was taken at one of those times. Even though the picture doesn’t look like it, she was actually loving the attention Kalissa was giving her. I think the kennel is her safe house.
The pain meds make her “not like herself”. She doesn’t have the spark in her eye. She doesn’t do her typical mannerisms. She’s really “dopey”. We have however gotten in a rhythm and I am able to get her to take her meds.
Near her incision it is kind of hard and Hubby doesn’t like that. Being it’s Friday and a vet won’t be around tomorrow, Hubby asked if I would take her back to the vet just to make sure everything is okay. We have an appointment in a couple hours.
Last night at 2 am she woke me. I took her outside and she did her business. I took her back upstairs and she couldn’t settle down so I carried her back downstairs and slept on the couch with her. She loves human contact more than even now that she is sick which is okay with me.
All in all I really think Ruby is doing okay. She is MUCH-MUCH-MUCH slower on recovery compared to when she was spayed. I’ll do an update to this post later today after we get back from the vet.
Thank you all for being so concerned about her.
**Ruby went to the vet. More staples were put along the incision. We adjusted her pain meds and took a new x-ray. Everything looked pretty good. The little shelter puppy that was there getting spayed looked pretty good too!!
