The vet just called. Izzie is walking, although her back legs are a bit weak. She has urinated, which is a good sign as well. The vet said she didn't eat much and thought it might be the pain killers. However, as most of you know, Izzie likes human food and she's not getting any of that. Besides, breakfast isn't her thing (unless it's a piece of bacon). A snack at lunch time and a good meal in the evening are more her style.
She will be on IV painkillers until this evening at 6. They'll then give her pain meds orally. I told them that she really doesn't complain unless it really hurts. The only sign that I've noticed is that when she's in pain, she pants. The harder the panting the more the pain. The doctor said she'd write that in Izzie's chart for the night vet. They told me I can call at any time to find out how she's doing even in the middle of the night (I'm not going to do that—I've done too many 24-hour on-calls in the hospital to call in the middle of the night just for information). They will call again tomorrow morning.
