I am sorry I just now saw this Nikki! I will keep Bailey in my thoughts and prayers that she has a speedy recovery! Please give her a gentle hug for me. It sounds like she is doing really well.. She's a cutie!

Thanks everyone for all the vibes and kind words. Just wanted to update quickly before I head off to sleep. Bailey is dong well. She had her first BM a few days ago (it's a VERY good thing she did because we were worried some of the blockage might have been missed since she was taking so long to "go") so all is good now! Her incision site looks excellent, she's right where she needs to be as far as the healing process goes.

I didn't get to take her to the vet today for her little mini-check up (please note the thread about me wanting to strangle my nephew in the lounge because of his little stunt, I had to reschedule her for Monday).

Bailey is now able to eat more of her ID food and yogurt and is handling that very well. My two dogs are VERY infatuated with her, they try to give her kisses through the bars of her cage and sit right near her cage every chance they get- it's prescious! Bailey also finished off her Cimetidine (antibiotic) the other day, so now she's just taking 4 different meds every day instead of 5.

The only thing that she's driving me nuts over is the dumb dog wakes up at the crack of dawn every morning and starts HOWLING at the top of her lungs...not to use the bathroom, not for company, just to be howling So I have a system worked out for now- I leave the radio on low for her at night and sedate her good before I go to sleep. When she wakes us up howling, I go in there and take her outside then feed/water/ and medicate her again and put her in her cage. At that point I let my two dogs out of the bedroom (they sleep in the room with us at night) and then they go in the kitchen and hang out by Bailey. That seems to work well so far- they keep her company and it shuts her up so I can sleep more

i have just read through the whole thread and i'm delighted to see that bailey is doing so well!

my rb lurcher was a chronic chewer (brought on by insecurities from his previous owner) and we were so lucky that the worst he ever had was a tummy ache.

if i was to work out the price of all the things he destroyed and food he stole it would run into alot of money over 12 and a half years!

still, they are worth every penny and i send some continued good progress for precious bailey.

Bailey is doing good tonight. She's only down to 3 meds now so that's even better I'm taking her back to the vet tomorrow for a little mini-checkup

She seems to be having more and more energy with each day, so now she's not liking staying in the crate so much! I've been putting my dogs up in my bedroom and then letting Bailey out of her kennel to walk around a bit -I'll sit down on the living room rug and she'll come lay down by me and just relax a bit. It does her good to stretch her legs a little and get lots of attention.

I have great news

I picked up my sister Kimmy today and she went with Bailey and I to the vet for the check up. Bailey's incision site has healed up so well that the vet went ahead and removed the external stitches today!!!!

I'm still going to keep the e-collar on her for a few more days because we don't want her licking or aggervating the incision area, but so far so good!

We're still keeping her on her sedatives and meds though as she's still healing a good bit internally and has a long road ahead of her.

If all goes well though and we don't have anything else come up, she will be going back to my sister's house to be with her family this week!
