Well, we're home!!!!!
The vet tech went on about how she was STILL groggy and had slept most of the time she was there...then told me to put water in her wet food and if she stopped eating for 24+hours to bring her in. we talked about some other stuff too
She was brought into the waitingroom and immediately started mewing and putting her face up against the cage when I started talking to her. We had a ok ride home, and chester ran into the bedroom the minute he heard her mew. As soon as she was allowed out, she went straight to the food dish and has consumed a whole bowl, (about 1/2 cup) with assistance from chester of dry and about 1/8 of a can of wet, has had lots of water (and tipped the rest on the floor) and used the litter about 3 times in the last 2 hours. Now she's running around, almost like usual (a little sore in the back end) and currently pawing the back of my head from the windowsill. Groggy my buns!!! I think she may have been a bit homesick.
the stitches are discinigrating so I don't have to take her back, and the area looks well taken care of. I'm so happy it's turned out this well..the cranky receptionist wasn't even there today
