She's o.k.

Dr. Sparling just called...Jaida is o.k.

The surgery went well, without complications. She is more sore than last time, as this type of surgery requires disturbing the brachial plexus nerve system (a biggie). Muscles have been repositioned to pad and protect this sensitive area. She has a large, inverted-Y-shaped incision. They are managing her pain well and monitoring her very closely. She will stay overnight, and will be monitored frequently. Hopefully she will come home with us tomorrow if all goes well.

Speaking for myself only (although I suspect Kim is feeling much the same)...I am shaking and exhausted...drained emotionally and physically...it is all I can do not to cry.

Thanks to Dr. Andrew Sparling, his surgical team, and all the other staff at Osgoode Veterinary Services who continue to be fully supportive throughout this ordeal.
