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

Please give her a gentle hug for me.
It sounds like she is doing really well.. She's a cutie!
