I’m home!

They rescued me. This was the second time, the first was over 11 years ago. I’m home and there will be no pictures (I’m a mess and a lady can’t be seen this way-you girls will know what I mean). The amputation was a success and my toe is going to the pathologist to see what the problem was and if I need to worry any more. That will take five days. I have a bandage on my foot and it can’t get wet. I was told “no swimming” but that’s like telling someone with a fear of heights not to tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon-no problem there. I have to keep my bandage dry and the one problem (and this is embarrassing) is that sometimes when I piddle, I don’t aim too well and/or I do it really right with a lot of liquid and I possibly could get the bandage wet. When They take me out to do whatever, They have to enclose my foot and bandage in plastic wrap. Am I a fashion trendsetter, or what? First booties and now transparent flexible shoes. I’m supposed to not play with the youngsters (do I have to wither away?) and I’m not supposed to eat or drink too much tonight-WHAT? Me eat too much, no way no how. The vet said that I might vomit but They know me and said “Kyla would NEVER waste food that way”.  No matter, I’m on reduced rations for a short while-that’s considered war in Kyla-think. Now you have all the skinny on my condition, except

yessssss, I’M ON PAIN MEDS- loop-de-loop and hell yes, whatever. Now to crash under the bed. Here’s a picture of me in my official Blogville uniform. Oh yessss, I just blessed myself but I’m not supposed to touch the Holy Water.

  1. Me and Nellie are glad that you are doing ok.

  2. Well, we’re glad the op was a success and we hope there was nothing badly wrong with your toe. Now, about keeping it dry, we think living in the desert might be an advantage. Hope you recover soon and can have more FOOD! (This traumatic experience is worth much more than green beans.)

  3. Kyla think no baths. Pain meds love them. Just go potty more often. Or you could try it like me ~ lift the leg that is minus a toe and pee one of the little monsters.
    Glad you are home in the arms that love you.
    Sweet William The Scot

  4. Hey, I’m one of the little monsters. She can’t go potty a whole lot, she’s prohibited from excessive H2O intake. I think her comment on that was “I’m switching to margaritas”.

  5. Glad to hear everything went well. You are a true fashionista, I’m just glad they didn’t put ziplock bags on your feet. Continued prayers.

    Aroo to you,

  6. Oh, I am SOOOO glads to hear you’re okay gurl!! Now, I knew the dogtor would give you some of the ‘good stuffs’ (pain meds) so you can just lay and lets the peeps bring everything TO you! Ah, as it should be.
    Okays, now Ma has a tip on the plastic wrap to keep the footie dry…use Glad Press and Seal wrap! It is the bestest and it sticks to itself so you don’t have to use rubberbands or anything to keep it in place. Ma used it on her Angel Annie when her footie had to be kept dry during an El Nino..worked amazingly well.
    Anyhu, I’m keepin’ my paws crossed your paw heals up nicely and you gets FABulous news in 5 days.
    Now, Kaci and Kyla ~ you take good care of her, okays?

  7. Good to hear your home safe, fingers crossed on the path results

  8. She’s sleeping right now (good) and she’ll see all your comments tomorrow.

  9. I am so happy to read about your ‘experience’. War wounds are cool to talk about…after the fact. I think it’s even more fun to make up a story on how you lost your toe. It could be a contest!! I’m sure you are sleeping soundly and pain free. So glad you’re home!

  10. We’re very pleased to hear that it all went well. Paws crossed you heal fast and that those results come back in 5 days with the “all clear”
    Wally & Sammy

  11. Glad to hear you are doing okay! I hope you keep feeling better and that pesky toe being gone eliminates the problem.

  12. Kyla, I’m so happy, you are back t home. I hope for good news in 5 days. Many thanks to your vet and many, many thanks to your bipeds that they do all what they can for you. I went to bed yesterday with my laptop to read the news, but sadly we slept in while waiting :o)

  13. So glad you are doing ok and back home now. Whee have our paws crossed for good news in five days time. For now, take it easy and make sure they treat you like a princess!

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

  14. It’s great that you are back. Stay off the stiletto heels and you’ll be good as new and dancing with the dog stars soon!

  15. Sooooooo very pleased to hear that you’ve been rescued!!! Paws crossed that there’s more good news in 5 days – you didn’t need that pesky toe anyway.

  16. Glad you are home and the youngsters are looking after you and giving you great care. Cross paws for good news in 5 days and you have a speedy recovery.

  17. So pawleazed you are home and we hope’z those results come in sharpish. I just love that photo, we had such fun doing the pope of Blogville 🙂 Sending youz all my love xxoxxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  18. I’m glad you are home and all went well. The vet is right about eating too much. You don’t want to do that. You really don’t.

    Have a woof woof day and do what your momma says. 🙂

  19. Oh we are so pleased that it went well and you are back home where you belong, Kyla. Here’s to a speedy recovery and resumption of regular meals!

    Edgar and his mum

    • Regular meals-here’s someone who understands my predicament. I think I’ll start off with green beans and a side of SouthWest hot sauce for an appetizer.

  20. So glad you are home and well! I hope you get back to regular rations soon…I hate limited foodies (the humans sometimes call it a diet). Woof!

  21. Glad you are home safe and we send healing vibes and POTP for a speedy recovery.
    Best wishes Molly

  22. so pleased to hear you’re home. Sending you loads of love and hugs. Get well soon xxx

  23. We have great faith in your ability to heal quickly. It is great to be home. Play it for all of the sympathy that you can get.

  24. Oh Kyla I missed this yesterday. I’m glad you are recovering well. You relax and let Them spoil you.
    Alyssa, Mr Fox & Scruffy

  25. Fingers crossed the all clear comes through. We know what a bore keeping bandages dry is so good luck!
