After yesterday's sad events, Piper seemed to be okay. She was leaking small dime sized spots of blood on the floor and whatever she sat on. I had read about bleeding after labor, so I wasn't alarmed. After all, the events of the previous night had left my carpet stained (all the more reason to finally get new carpet). We lined my floor with old sheets and blankets
I got into bed last night late and little Piper was curled up at my feet. My parents checked in on her periodically to make sure she was okay. We had taken her temperature a few times during the evening and it seemed a bit low. I woke up around 6:30 am and she was curled up inbewteen my feet. When I finally got up in the morning she was sweet and affectionate, curling up near my arms.
Piper ate ravenously this morning, a good sign. My parents took her to the vet and it turned out that she still had a kitten inside of her, but it isn't alive. They made the decision to spay her. She's being spayed at 3 pm today, it's 3:04 pm now. They're keeping her over night to make sure that she is okay after being spayed.
I really miss her so much! I can't wait to have her back in my room. I know I'm attached already, I think we all are. More posts and pictures to come soon, I know everyone will want to her about her recovery.
3/15/11 ***5 PM UPDATE*** Piper was successfully spayed and is recovering at the vet. They said she still had a kitten inside of her, but it was dead. Sad, but if it had been born it probably would have had serious health issues. My little girl will be back tomorrow morning.
