Dr Snoopy here!
Dad brought WHN home several hours ago, and of course I had to conduct a very thorough post operative examination-and learned to my relief that WHN had not forgotten her primary duties with regards to her dachshunds and beagle baby. We graciously allowed her to take a three hour nap, completely snoopervised by all four of us, in case she fell out of the bed.
WHN is not allowed to do any lifting and of course no housework (please stop laughing- we all know she doesn't do any at all) and is on lots of pain meds to help her heal. The drain is almost a foot long and she has lots of new surgical scars, so no bikini this year! She sees the surgeon again Wednesday for her follow up, and opefully will have the date for the next surgery.
