Lily's home - still pretty doped out (that's a narcotics patch covered by the green bandage on her neck!), and her hind leg is all bandaged up, as you can see. Her chronically dislocated knee is all fixed and stablised; there was no damage to the cruciate ligament after all. It must have been some of the fiddliest surgery ever, such tiny joints!
Lily has a heart murmur so the vet didn't want her to go onto anti-inflammatory pain killers. She's the lowest permissible weight for the narcotics (3.2 kg) so we have to have to keep a close eye on her, and make sure her breathing doesn't get too slow. The med is at it's maximum effectiveness now, though, so she should be OK. It's a restricted drug, so we have to take her back on Monday to have it removed and logged on their official records.
Dotter, BF and I went to another education session at the hospital today, this time with the dietician - low-GI isn't so important now, but carbohydrate exchanges are - wheee, something new to learn. I was yawning through the whole 2 hours - so terribly overtired. Anyone know where I can find a copy of the Women's Weekly's Fat and Carb Pocket Guide? The first newsagency I checked (Erindale) didn't have it.
I've just finished a rush puzzle job - my agent called late yesterday with a request for a large Harry Potter word search for The Sunday Age. Worked until about 11pm last night, and have just sent the final version in - it'll be in this Sunday's Age (22nd July).
My pen pal Cindy (who often comments on my Blog - HI Cindy!!) has stepped into the world of Blogging! So drop on over and say hi - her blog is Honeygo Beasley, named after her gorgeous puppy Chloe. It's a pretty doggy blog :D
Finally, thanks everyone for your encouraging words about my online shop - and for the orders that have come in - very exciting!
It's my TV night again - Inspector Rex and The Eagle - I'm really really ready to veg out in front of the box!! My A capella capelet is nearly done - I want to add a garter stitch border to make it a bit deeper, and then it's just buttons. Still have to cook dinner first though.
