I'm sick

Things didn't turn out the way I expected when they took my insides out. Motch and PA took me to the breeder to get spayed because she wanted to do it. I spent the night at her house and the next morning, I didn't want to go potty because it was very cold outside,so I went into the surgery with a full bladder. As a result, the doctor cut my bladder so I've got stitches holding it together and then I have the normal ones. See my stitches?I'm eating a little and drinking a little but mostly just resting and sleeping. I am going potty all over the house, just little bits here and there because it just comes. Sometimes I shake, too. Anyway, I'm on an antibiotic and I'm getting a lot of attention right now. I like it best when I am held, all cuddled up in my blanket. When Motch can't hold me all the time, I just lay real quiet and still.
The breeder told Motch that all will be well, that I just need time to heal --- like maybe 2 weeks. Motch is nervous about me and spends her time holding me and watching me. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers and whatever it is that you do when you think of me. I hope to get well soon. I'll have Motch keep you posted!

Oh, Petra Gurrl!

You, fren, are in my prayers! I'm so sorry that you have the pee problems now, but bet it will all heal up for you.

I'm sending you my most goobery hugs and kissies to heal you. Please tell Motch she can have some of those kissies for her, since I know she prolly needs them too!

Now, try to stay quiet and do whatever Motch & Pa tell you to, okay? Can't wait til you're up and playing with Tad and Fig again.

I'm not a nursey girl, but if you need anything else, I'll make sure you get it.

All the love in my goobette heart,
Stella

Poor Petra!! Take it easy and I hope you fell lots better really soon. I'm sending you lots of good doggy vibes to help you get better faster. I say if cuddling in a blanket while being held all day makes you feel better, then that should happen all day long. Maybe everybody could get on a schedule to make sure you're held all day long. Good luck little girl!!
