|Ugh, so I've called twice today and the first call was great. She went through the surgery like gang-busters and her uterus was and I quote 'gigantic' and absolutely filled to brimming with puss. She tolerated the anesthesia well and the surgery itself went beautifully. I had been looking forward to taking her home this evening though the odds were against it.
Call two didn't go so well. She's doing and I quote "not as well as we would have hoped" aka vet speak for badly. Her blood pressure tanked and her core temp dropped hugely, so she's gone into shock. They're playing on a high wire with her fluids because too much with the heartworm infection and her heart will give out and too little and she die of the shock.
I'll be calling again before they close for the evening. Hopefully she'll have rebounded enough for a good night's rest.
