Jessie had toe surgery today. Well, she had to have
her badly broken toe amputated because it was too
damaged to splint. I have been worrying about it all
this week and all last night and all this morning
and all today... My poor little girl...
I called the vet and he said she did fine and is
recovering now. She's still groggy and he gave her
an injection to control her pain for the next 24
hours. I'll give her pain meds tomorrow morning.
I set up the basement infirmary for her all nice and
clean and cozy and pretty. I brought in the fence
too, so I can divide it in half and bring Barney
inside for the night to keep her company.
She'll be inside for 10-14 days before her sutchers
come out and then she will be able to go back
This weekend I'll be crawling through the pens
trying to figure out what she managed to stub her
toe on, and then I'm going to fix it. There's a
little ridge near the courtyard pond. It's very
subtle, but I'm going to smooth it out with some
cement to make sure that wasn't the culprit. Isabel
is all set to help. We'll do it together!
