Thanks for all the nom vibes everybuddy. They appear to be doing the trick.I'm not eating a lot, but I am eating enough to keep me out of being re-admitted. Because of the surgery and my vet wanting me to stay on a hypoallergenic diet the most likely option if I didn't eat was a feeding tube. Avoiding that is awesomesauce.I've been a super snugglebug since I got home, and spend most of my time snoozing. I'm glad I didn't have to serve out my time in the post-surgical area. Mum picked up some dvds and enough food to last several days on the way to get me so we've been camping out on the couch together. I have chewed off my dressing, but since getting rid of that I've left the incision alone. Mum thinks I'm being good and brave, but really I just think I would look silly in an Elizabethan collar and want to avoid it. It's all about my street cred, really.
