I'm Home

Mom and dad picked me up from the animal hospital around 5:30 last night and I was full of energy and ready to get going! I said good-bye to the kitties in the cages and jumped into the Maggiemobile for my ride home! Mom was warned not to give me food or water for a whole hour after we got home because I'd woof it down and this could lead to even more problems but mom sorta broke the rules and gave me small bits every 15 minutes until all of my soggy food was gone! Thanks, mom! Because of my toofie surgery, I have to have my kibble soaked in water for 7 days to make it easier for me! It actually smells better wet than it does dry! It brings out all of those lucious aromas and I was sooo hungry last night! I kept whinning to mom to please give me more, more, more!

I do have pain killing meds and antibiotics to take and mom dips them in the peanut butter and I have no problem swallowing them right down!

This morning mom noticed that I was scratching at my stitches and I got the e-collar for a very short while! I kept bumping into things and it was so frustrating and Mitch was laughing at me and thought it was playtime! I didn't think it was funny at all! Mom took pity on me and told me that if I stayed right next to her she'd take it off, so I did! Bless you, mom! I'm going to try and be good and avoid that nasty PIA collar!
When it was time for walkies I didn't want to go! I did make it outside but I kept looking back at the house longingly so mom didn't push the issue. She brought me back inside and Mitch and dad and mom went walkies without me! It was okay!

This is the girl they saw when they returned home~
I was content!

Can you see my poodle leg? That's what dad calls it! It's where my IV was!

Mom is making New England Clam Chowder for dindin tonight and Mitch was hanging out in the kitchen waiting for a free handout! I didn't even bother getting up and going to see what was going on! I'm very quiet and I love my extra pets and hugs! Mom says to give it time and I'll feel better in no time at all! I hope so! Thank you all for all the support that you gave to me and my family yesterday! It meant the world to us and we couldn't have gotten through it without you! You're all such great friends!

Look at the beautiful get well e-card that Huskee and Hershey sent me this morning!

Thank you so very much, guys! That was very, very thoughtful of you!
They also sent Mitch and I Snoopy Christmas ornies! They arrived in the mail on Monday, the day before my surgery!
Mitch kept trying to take them off the tree and mom told him no!
This was so very sweet of you guys! We all love Snoopy here and we will treasure these ornies forever and think of you each year when we hang them on our Christmas tree! Thank you very much!It's beginning to snow at our house right now! The weatherman is predicting from 3" to 6" for us! It'll be a lazy day for me today! So I'm going back to doing what I do best!

Happy New Year to all of our DWB buddies! We wish the very best for all of you in 2009!

So until next year..............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Happy New Year to you and Mitch and family!

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Maggie, we hope you are all the way back to normal VERY SOON! Water soaked food is the best! Mom used to always soak Pockets' #1's food because of her cleft pallate, so she also soaked Penny's. Once Pockets went to the bridge, Penny didn't get her food soaked anymore. She was a little upset about that because she couldn't eat it as fast! Tell your mom that ice cream would make you feel better!

Happy New Y-aire!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Patience-please said...

Ah, sweet Maggie, so glad you're home, and feeling okay! You'll feel like going on walkies again soon enough. Sometimes that general anesthesia can make you kind of achey for a day or so.

hi M&M! we're happy to see you back at home and doing good, Maggie. that poodle leg is soooooo sexy. Bailey says he's gonna have to have a crush on you and your poodle leg.

clam chowder sounds really good. we think you need to get a little taste of it, Maggie & Mitch, just to make sure it's okay for your parents to eat.

PS: She has to soak your kibble for 7 days? Doesn't it get mighty soggy even after 1? :)
