She'll be in my heart and mind. I'll try to send out really good energy.
I am so glad you saw this. I know your energy helped. . . her surgery went so well. Found no necrosis which was like a miracle to us. That is typically what the situation is and why animals don't make it once tortion occurs. So did not have to remove any of her bowel, no infection in surrounding tissue, etc. Vet very surprised; I just believed she had to be alright. This morning, heart palpitations and panting, so vet did an echo to make sure she is not in heart failure. I think it is a combo of anxiety and anesthesia recovery.

Our son is the reason she was taken to the Vet so quickly. Our sweet girl has had intermittent diarrhea and soft stools since we returned last week (after hubby's stay in hospital). But the odor from her BMs changed and son immediately said - we have to get her to emergency Vet NOW. It was a strange odor and son said it is the same in humans who have bleeding in the GI tract. He said if I ever smell that odor in a human, to get him/her to the hospital immediately. Who knew this stuff? So glad son was here. Don't mean to be too graphic here, but mentioning this as I had no idea that bleeding would carry an odor- this is something that could be very important to know, so I am passing it on.

Hubby is off to have staples out of his incision. Hoping furkid makes it through the day and is able to come home.

Thank you, BJW and CCC, for your thoughts, prayers, intentions . . . it is very very appreciated.

One realtor from the South who is practicing here told me that the one pet thing (under 25 lb) is almost a phenomenon in New England. It may be different in 55+ communities. Note to realtors, please insert the pet law into condo listings.
We just bought a townhome and there are no restrictions concerning pets. However, many townships have restrictions as to how many pets one can have per family unit, as in - 2 cats, 2 dogs, 2 birds, etc. I have lived in three towns that had limitations about pets per family unit . . . one town required that if a person had more than 4 pets in a single family unit (home, townhome, condo, mobile home, etc), they had to declare themselves a pet sanctuary, which had other regs and a license, etc. to qualify for that.

I am not seeing the HOA covenants/regs in this part of the country that you are dealing with, NEG. Now, for RENTALS, yes. For owners, though, nope.

I think declaring yourself a "sanctuary" would be the way to go!

How very fortunate that he was there and recognized that something was drastically wrong. I hope her recovery (and yours) is fast and complete and that there is NEVER a repeat of this awful condition.

Thank you so much. I am sorry I haven't been a very good participant on the forum - have not even taken time to read back and find out what I had missed and I apologize for being totally wrapped up in my own life right now.

We pray she will have a few more years of a good life ahead. She is having a tough recovery. Furkid and hubby are sticking close. They are soooooo attached. Losing her right now at this juncture in his recovery would be so very hard. Never a good time, of course, but this would be the worst time. She is such a big part of our lives and routine. We also converse with her a lot . . . and she stays beside one of us all the time, 24/7. After 11 1/2 years, we just don't do anything without thinking about her, even if only to make sure we don't step on her tail when we stand up, lol. We know we will have to give her up eventually. Such is life. She has brought us so much joy and we hope we have provided her with the happiest of situations . . . she has deserved the love and attention . . . such a sweet girl.
