    What an amazing Mum you are !

    Ok so i have Kodi booked in for her stem cell stuff this Thursday the 1st of August.

    Thankyou to everyone who replied, it's much appreciated.
    Thankyou Kingly Pet for your lovely comment
    I just wanted to add Hyacinth that she does have to have a general Aneasthetic.

    Will keep you all updated on how she goes.

    Just as long as she has someone constantly dedicated to supervising the anaesthetic and the breathing and they don't leave the vet or dog alone while they nick out to answer the phone or make a coffee. Monitoring breathing and vitals and anaesthetic is a full time continuous job without having to worry about a single other thing.

    Just thought i'd do a quick update on Kodi.

    She went in for her operation at about 9am this morning. As luck would have it i happened to be working literally 100 metres down the road from the vet today so i could pop in at lunch time and after work to ask them how she was going.

    She has come through the aneasthetic just fine. She was knocked out at about 9:30 this morning for removal of fat cells and for x-rays. She was also knocked out again at about 3pm for injection of stem cells into her joints.
    I talked to the receptionist at about 5:30 this arvo and she was doing fine. She will have a reasonable scar on her side where the fat was removed and stitches to come out in 10 days time.
    She is staying there tonight as they want to make sure she's coping ok with any pain.

    I will pick her up in the morning.

    Thankyou again everyone for your well wishes, support and advice. It's very much appreciated.

    I picked Kodi up Friday morning. She spent the night in a heated cell and was checked on constantly and slept well.
    She was so glad to see me and pulled the vet all the way to me. Her tail was constantly wagging.

    She has been doing well at home. She has her normal appetite and toilets herself. She does lay down a lot but she was doing that before the op.
    She has a lot of shaved points (elbows, knees and one hip), and has a hell of a scar down her right side. She doesn't lick her stitches at all but she's always been good with stitches.

    She goes back to the vet this friday for a check up and then back a week later for her stitches removal.

    The bad news is that her arthritis is really bad. She has it in both knees, both elbows, one hip and in her spine. The vet showed me the x-rays and pointed out where all the arthritis is. A couple of the vertebrae in her spine have started to fuse together. He actually said it's a wonder she can walk.

    Made me feel like a really bad mum!

    He said he's really just working on her having pain relief.

    Thankyou to everyone for asking about her. Rest assured that i have her best interests and quality of life in mind at all times. Sometimes it's hard as they can hide the pain really well.
