    Just talked to the vet assistant, Joey's surgery went really well and she's breathing much better. She got her nares widened as well so I think it will be a huge improvement for her The vet assistant will sit with her now for a while, she's just starting to wake up and the surgeon will call us soon with more details. We can pick her up tomorrow even, I'm so relived!

    It really is so great, I'm feeling 100kg lighter The surgeon called, he's happy with how the operation went but he says that Joey's nares are still tight "inside"... he widened what he could. He also said because of her large tongue she'll always have some degree of breathing issues, it's simply in the way.

    But ja... things are looking good I can't wait to get her home, she's greatly missed<3

    Thanks everyone for thinking of us<3 We arrived home with Joey last night at 10 PM, we were all exhausted. Joey ate her late dinner with good appetite even though she struggles a little with the soft food as her tongue makes it hard for her to manage food like that.

    She's got some snot coming out from her nose but I guess that's normal after Naroplasty? and her poop is very loose at this stage... I'm hoping it will get better once she goes back on her normal food... Right now she eats Hills A/D canned food that we got prescribed by the vet.

    She's been sleeping basically all day today, but it's good, she's on restricted exercise for the next three weeks.

    Her breathing does seem better already even though she still has some healing to do
