Payton Update

We just got back from visiting Payton and I'm happy to report that she is doing much better. I had called a couple of times today to see if it was a good time to come up and visit and each time the office said that they were dealing with emergencies and to call back later. The last time I called they said to come on up and that she was doing good. She was out of the oxygen chamber and had something to eat. She had also gone outside to do her business. Yeah! All good signs. She was very happy to see us when we arrived and of course looked like a goof with the cone around her neck. Mark got to take her outside to go potty again while I talked to the vet and it looks like we will be bringing her home tomorrow. We looked at the X-rays and she had broke 4 ribs and had alot of internal fluid. It will take about 8 weeks for a full recovery. She looked great even though she had a tube coming out of her nose and still would have to go back to her IV after we left. She just wanted our hands inside the cone to rest her head on our hands, just like she did in the oxygen tank last night. I know that she is going to be alright. We will be so thankful when she comes home. I guess we will be celebrating Thanksgiving early this year, just like we did almost a year ago to the day when we adopted our baby Payton. I remember last Thanksgiving being really mellow, just Mark and I, and all day long I was feeling that Payton was an example of what Thanksgiving is all about. Being Thankful. We were thankful about finding her and she was thankful that we found her.

Thanks for posting an update on Payton. Sounds like you got some really good news. The poor little thing. You will all feel better once she is home.
