I’m overwhelmed and so grateful for all of your prayers and positive thoughts for my cousin Ria. She has had her operation today and she’s in recovery now. Her accident was actually a week ago and her local vet had been monitoring her, which is purrfectly normal, before she was sent to the specialists. When the specialists opened her up and looked at her spinal cord, things were worse than they expected but they have done the best job they could. There was more bleeding when the surgeon moved the disk material but he was satisfied with the operation. Ria has woken up quite groggy, which is normal, and will be kept at the hospital for observation for at least a few days.
Hopefully she’ll be at home recuperating with her sisters, Polly and Blossom, and her brother Digger soon.
I can’t express how grateful all of us are for your kind wishes.
