Silly Nourishing Rat has managed to remove all her stitches. I suspect this might be down to how fat she is as well as her picking at them, but still the downside is she's had to go back to the vet, under another anaesthetic (which is the dangerous stage) then be sewn (or indeed as the vet suggested today "stapled") back up again.
It doesn't make me very happy because of the risk - but I don't see what choices there are. She had the first op because she had a tumour; she has this op in order to ensure she heals up well without infection. Poor thing. I just hope she pulls through. Logic is no comfort at a time like this.
I should go out for a run - it'll clear my head a little bit or at least distract me a bit.
[Edit: 19:30 - The vet has called - she's had the op and has woken up. Seems to be doing ok. Lucky he didn't get offended by her pissing on him when he picked her up earlier eh!]
