At The Vet Today

AYLA:  I am writing this last night cuz I am at the vet "now".  An I couldnt very well post from there.  I am havin a surgery!

Warning, this may all be a bit gross. so ya can just bail an wait til later updates iffen ya want.  I wont blame ya a bit...

Still with me?  OK, your decision...

It all started Sunday affernoon.  I was standing on the noospaper while TBT was tryin ta read it, when he suddenly noticed some tan "stuff" comin out my backside.  I dint even know.  He thought I was havin a strange poop.  But, ta put this as delicately as possible, that wasnt where it was comin out.  It was the other place, OK?

So some stuff came out.  It fell on the noospaper.  He grabbed some soft tissues an cleaned me first, then the noospaper.  That happened several more times during the day.  I also left stains around wherever I sat.  My shoe rack sleepin towel an TBT's blankie need to be washed.  I kept lickin myself clean as I could, but it wasnt very successful.  TBT says it is NOT my fault, but I still feel kinna embarrassed about it.

I was at the vet the very FIRST thing Mon morning an stayed there all day!

Here I am at arrival. ..
I was good an stayed on the cold table.  It did help that TBT held an scritched me all the time.
Ya know what scares me there?  The walls are filled with drawings of kitties (and woofies) in various stages of being in parts!  Bones, muscles, innards!  The Beins even got names fer evry tiny PART of us!  I dint know anny of the werds, but I know what it means when there are werds an arrows pointin ta stuff.

Annyways, I got poked, prodded, squeezed, stabbed, needled, and they even took a picture of my insides.  They even stole my pee!  TBT saw the Xrays.  Well, at least I seem ta have GREAT bones!  When TBT came ta bring me home in the afternoon, the vet told him I DONT have bladder stones, or an inflammation of the bladder or kidneys.  So its not the "pee" parts of me what are in trubble.  But it seems I have some sort of infection problem (mebbe) related to the 2 bad spay jobs I got (from a differnt vet).

So Dr Jeffrey has ta go IN me and have a look around.  The bad news is that I get cut open down there AGAIN!  3rd time.  Thank COD I'll somehow manage ta sleep through THAT!  Im a GREAT sleeper apparently.  The good news is that he can probly find what is suddenly wrong with me.  The other good news is that he will be looking at the same place (since he is in there) to see if he can find out why I still go into heat after 2 spay operations.  You know, as long as he is all IN there, might as well.

Im thinkin this might all be worth it iffen he stops me goin into heat.  TBT an I have FULL confidence Dr Jeffrey will find an stop the inflammation.  The heat thing is less certain.  But mebbe I will score big from this problem an BOTH will be solved.

TBT expects to hear news about me around Noon EDT and will be picking me up about 4:30 today.  So there may be updates.

Wish me luck...

UPDATE:  [TBT - Noon]  WONDERFUL NEWS!

Dr Jeffrey just called and said Ayla will not only be fine, she will be double-fine!  First, he found the infection problem easily.  The original operating vet left too much of her uterus intact and it finally became infected.  He solved that.  Second, he says that almost her entire left ovary was right there in plain sight and he removed it.  The original operating vet missed it not once, but twice!  What an idiot!!!

So it appears that Ayla will not only be healthy again, but shouldn't go into heat any more.  She and I will BOTH be thrilled!  I can pick her up in about 3 hours.  Ayla doesn't realize it yet, but this is probably the best day of her life...  

UPDATE:  [AYLA - 4:30 PM]:  I am back home now, but feeling lousy an my tummy hurts.  And I have this awful cone on my head again!  TBT says I will be glad of this soon, but Ive heard THAT before.  So Im gonna spend a few days in the MewsRoom and just wait til I feel better.  I hope TBT finds that inflatable collar soon.  Its annoyin, but much better than this awful cone thing.  More tomorrow!

Oh, Ayla, we're purring hard for you! The mom tells us Annie had to be spayed twice, 'cause they left ovarian tissue the first time and she went into heat, but the second spaying was successful.

We're so sorry you had two spays also, and now this.

We're keeping our paws crossed that the problem will be found and taken care of and that you'll be fine.

An update would be most welcome, if possible.

Purrs and kitty kisses!

Katnip Lounge said...

Ayla, we have our paws crossed that all will go smoothly during your surgery, and you can be done with the heat cycles after this, as well. You are such a brave girl...Mommy is fretting for you already.
Kepp us posted, please...
Purrs and {{hugs}} from Mommy

Oh, Ayla, we're so sorry you've had to go through all this. We hope the vet will find the problem and it will be easy to fix - both problems, hopefully!

Sending lots of purrs and wags for you.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh Ayla--we are purring hard! It is probably nearly noon your time and so we hope that we are hearing an update soon!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

It's just about lunch time here and we are thinkin of you, Ayla...get well soon!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh we are so happy at this good news ~ mom was at work all day so we've only just read the post and the update. Ayla, smoochies from us and get well purrs.

Cory said...

Ayla, we are all doing a happy dance for you!

However...we did join paws for a group hiss to the incompetent vet who left your girlie parts in plain sight where they caused you problems.

Ok, back to happy dancing!!!

Brian said...

I am so very happy that all is well and we're all sending mega-healing purrs to you sweet Ayla!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

This is terrrific news! We're so happy for Ayla. It's a shame the first vet was an idiot. A lot of suffering and expense for what should have been an easy operation the first time. Purrs and wags for Ayla.

The Meezers or Billy said...

OH. MY. BAST!! This is about the bestest noos EFUR!!! We is SOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that Ayla is going to be OK and that she (hopefully) will nefur go inta heat again!!!!

Ayla,
We is happy that the surgery went well and that you finally got a vet who knew what he was looking for! We think this might be the second best day in your life...the first being your gotcha day!
Sending snuggles for a fast recovery,
Taz, Runt, and Charles

Fuzzy Tales said...

We've been waiting for an update, thanks to Jan of Jan's Funny Farm for updating our comment on the CB with the news!

And this is TERRIFIC news! We're relieved Ayla will be fine. And frankly, if her original vet still is practicing, he shouldn't be. How can you miss most of her girlie parts?

Ayla, purrs to you for a speedy recovery. We KNOW you'll be SO happy to be home in a little while!

Junior and Orion said...

Holy smokes! That is alot for one kitty to have to go through! We are glad this vet got it all figured out and that you will be okay! We are sending healing purrs to you!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We are just reading this since you posted the update and are thrilled that all has gone even better than planned! How scary to see the mysterious icky stuff coming out!
You have a good vet this time. It is beyond us how a vet would only remove part of a uterus in a spay and miss an ovary twice. Couldn't he count to "two" during the first surgery?? This part makes mom mad.

The Island Cats said...

Oh, Ayla! We're so happy your operation was a huge success! We cannot believe that two times some stupid vet missed all that stuff in you. But Dr. Jeffrey sounds like a really good doctor and we're glad he finally fixed you!!

We're purring for a speedy recovery!!

Everycat said...

"almost her entire left ovary was right there in plain sight"

Poor Ayla sweetheart, after all this time you finally got sorted out. We remember back when this started for you and the two spays. We are so happy that the vet managed to help you. That's brilliant!

Gerry & Oliver

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Sheesh, dat furst vet musta been some kinda blind or stoopid or both! Thank goodness Dr Jeffrey gots dat all sorted out and now yoo'll be better den new!

Camie's Kitties said...

TBT - we are thrilled that this V-E-T was able to find out what was wrong with Ayla and fix it, and do a complete spay on her. We know how much happier you all will be.

Ayla - we are purring that you heal fast from your surgery and don't get sick ever again.

Cody and Gracie

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

TBT, we are sooooo glad this ordeal with Ayla has finally been sorted out, she and you have gone through way too much with this!

Ayla, we are sending you our strongest purrs and purrayers to help you recover quickly from your 3rd and LAST surgery!
Many, many ((((hugs)))) to you, sweetheart,
Sabrina, Sam, Simon and Momma Jan

Updating is the best part !!! Me and mom are so glad to hear !!!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Paws up, Ayla! I'm so glad to hear that you finally got a vet who has done right by you! I don't know how the original guy could have botched a spay so badly - it's one of the most common operations ever! But it sounds like you're fixed up now, and you'll be better soon!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Mommy says that yes it the best day of Ayla's life and she should feel lots better now. The rest of us were all spayed or neutered before we were old enough to go into heat so we has no idea what Ayla has been going through.

We are so very happy that not only has Jeffrey taken care of the infection but that Ayla will no longer go into heat. We are betting your whole household will be a lot more peaceful now that that problem is solved. Ayla and Iza may even get along better.

Healing purrs for Ayla

Parker said...

That is AWESOME! Thank goodness for the new (and smarter) vet. We'll keep Ayla in our thoughts for a speedy recovery!

The Lee County Clowder said...

Good Noos! Time we find out Ayla is going to the V*T, she's already been treated, and fixed up fine. That is kinda the way we like things to go.

Purrrrss to Ayla and TBT. Big purrrrrrss to Dr Jeffrey, too. He sounds like a big step up from the doofus who did Ayla's first two spays.

MTVA said...

Ayla Dear, we are all purring for a speedy recovery for you. I think once this is all over, you will probably feel like a brand new kitty!

Ikaika said...

Ayla, I am so happy that you are finally fixed and on the road to recovery! Thank Bast TBT found Dr. Jeffrey. And I agree, that first vet should NOT be practicing. (Maybe that's why it's called "practicing'???) Well, he obviously needed more practice! Big healing purrs going out to you, Ayla.

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh sweetheart you have been through so much. That stoopid first vet to cause you to go through it all. I am glad this one could find what was wrong and sort it out. I am purring loudly that you will soon be feeling better. Hugs GJ x

Tyler said...

That is WONDERFUL news. I am sorry that your original V-E-T did such a poor job of spaying you. You and tbt have suffered too much. Well, I guess it's better to concentrate on the positive. Can't wait to hear that you're all healed up.Does that mean everyone will be able to go out into the garden later on? Purrrs, Ty's Bro's and Sisters

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Ayla sweetie we are sorry your tummy hurts but that is going to be temporary. You will feel better soon with proper rest and TBT to wait on you hand and foot.
So glad all is well!!!!!
xxxooo

Eric and Flynn said...

We only just heard that you had to go to the vet. That is great news that he found what was wrong and was able to remove the bits the original vet missed. We hope you are soon feeling fit as a flea again.

Cheri said...

Sending lots of prayers and purrs for quick healing for Ayla. Our Mom says to say we love your blog and enjoy reading it every day! Love Madison and Keegan!

Natalie said...

I'm sorry you're feeling under the weather, Ayla! But this will all be worth it! That's so exciting that the new vet figured out what went wrong the first couple times and has gotten things all fixed up.

William said...

Oh my Cod, how scary. But very good news, Ayla! You'll be back to your old self in no time!

P.S. Sorry the vet to attempted this the first two times was so dumb.

Derby, Ducky said...

This is GREAT news, Ayla! I'm sorry you had to go through all that, but sure glad TBT found Dr. Jeffrey to save the day. Wow! That other vet needs his vision checked-either that, or he was sloppy in his surgeries.

Purrs, darlin'!
