The mom is home again and doing okay. She didn't get to see the new doctor (just one of his underlings as she called him) and the only thing they told her was that she has two possibly three leaks on the suture line and not one. They say it is to soon after the first surgery to go in and fix them surgically now (8 weeks seems plenty of time of mom) so they have her on a complete Nil By Mouth (no water or food) for the next 4 weeks in the hope that they heal by themselves. Mom gets this special stuff at night time through a tube that feeds her - it goes straight into a main artery though and not her stomach because that is where the leaks are. Overall, Mom says she feels okay, but she gets exhausted with the slightest effort so there is no playing at the moment. I also have to be careful as Mom still has a 'drain' in - it's a long tube with a bag on the end and I have to be careful not to get my paws caught on it. The leaks from moms stomach caused an abscess near her left lung and the 'drain thingo' keeps the bad stuff from building up. Mom says to say thank you for all your wonderful thoughts - she appreciates them so much and we are sorry we don't have a lot of "ME" on my blog at the moment. Hopefully things will start to improve soon and I will be able to start visiting everyone again.
