Post Op

Patches had me worried yesterday. When we brought her home, she was squeaking intermittently in pain and was having episodes of agitation and confusion. Fortunately around midnight last night, the agitation resolved.

Now, she's acting like a typical postop ratty, snoozing with Nurse Gwyn. She's been eating and drinking.

The vet told us that it was likely residual effects of the anesthesia that was making Patches agitated. It's just heart wrenching to watch your rat trying to run from something that she can't see, and she was oblivious to her environment. But, Patches is Patches again.

She's healing well.

This is her attempting to balance on the little litterbox, but she was successfully munching her food.
