Missing our girl

This is the second night that Emmie is not here.

We miss her.

Her surgery was this morning. The lump was easily removed. It was when the vet went in to sterilize Emmie that complications arose. The vet said it was “not pretty” in there. The rest of the explanation was a bit complicated for me since it was medical in nature and I lack the vocabulary for that. I did understand that it had something to do with veins and that it was serious. She had to stay another night for observation.

Emmie may not make it.

I am to call tomorrow morning to check on her. She can come home tomorrow if she doesn’t have a temperature. Vilay will call for me tomorrow morning to check on Emmie and to find out the details that I didn’t understand.

I hate leaving her there all alone.

It is a good sign that the vet didn’t call back the rest of the day. I was told that they would only call again if something bad came up.

I can’t wait to see her tomorrow. The kids have asked about her all day. My son keeps asking me where she is even if he was with me when we left her at the animal clinic.

I am not the most religious person but today the kids and I sat in a circle holding hands and prayed for our girl, Emmie Cat.

Our girl.

This one makes me a little dizzy to look at. :)

I miss her sitting at my feet like this all throughout the day whether I am doing dishes, eating, at the computer or with the kids. She is almost always there. With me.

My husband even comments on how much she loves her mama. I know that she knows that I love her too.

    She is home and slept most of the day. She is very very very affectionate and has been eating ALOT. They told me she didn’t eat much there because she was afraid. Vilay called to get a clear explanation of her complication during surgery…her uterus was fused to her bladder. They told me she was fine and shouldn’t have any problems since she did so well yesterday. I am concerned since I bought white litter (on purpose) and I can see some blood in her urine. So, I will call the vet tomorrow and ask if that is normal.

    She is so happy to be home and we are so happy to have her back. :)

    I am so glad Emmie is home and recovering. Eating is a good thing – a good sign. Bless her, and you all.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

      Oh, I just read the comments. Glad to hear she’s home! Blood in the urine is not a good sign, though.

      I’ll be keeping her in my thoughts. Take it easy.
