Surgery Went Well!
Cody after knee surgery at the MSU Vet Clinic - 12-2-10
Looks like all went well with Cody's surgery!! Dr. Caron called me about noon today and said everything went just fine, and that Cody was awake and back in her stall already! Talk about breathing a HUGE sigh of relief!!! Sounds like she'll probably get to come home tomorrow afternoon if there's no complications. But Dr. Caron said he'll call me in the morning and let me know for sure, after he's had a chance to check her over and change her bandage. Hopefully she'll come home tomorrow. I think Lady is feeling a little lost, first Wayne's gone, and now Cody too. Poor girl!
So stopped into the vet clinic to see Cody for a while after work. She whinnied at me as soon as she saw me. That made my heart feel good! She seemed to be doing pretty good though. A little dumpy, and a wee bit wobbly on her feet when she moved, but then I'm assuming she's probably had some meds too, and she still has an IV in her neck, which again I'm assuming is for continuing to give meds. She was alert if she heard something, or I started moving around, but otherwise, she was pretty zoned out most of the time. Poor girl! But she was picking at her hay here and there, and all about the carrots I had in my pocket. And it looks like she has a pretty well shaved bald leg under a big ole bandage.
But at least she came through surgery ok, and seems to be doing fine. I'm sure she'll be back to her old self in no time. Spent about an hour with her, mainly just hanging out in her stall and giving her a few carrots and lots of love. And she whinnied at me again as I was leaving. Looking forward to seeing her again tomorrow, and hopefully she'll get to come home too!
