Karma is recovering from surgery.

Karma had a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO) Tuesday on her femur and hip.  She had an elevated white blood cell count before surgery but the vet attributed it to stress.  While shaving Karma to prepare for surgery, the vet found a small mass in her groin and she . I never touched her belly or legs for fear of hurting her-so I never noticed it.  For her story, click here.

She is recovering well and is back home now.
During the surgery, the vet saw that her hip had dislocated more.  She had an x-ray last Friday and since then, her hip has dislocated more.  So, she fixed her hip as well.

She will need another surgery for her other hip once she recovers from this first surgery.
Today, she is limping slightly and is a little hissy.  I am concerned a little that she is hissing because she is quite possibly the sweetest, most loving cat I have ever met.  She was purring when I met her and basically never stopped.  She loves being with us and purrs while on our lap.  Even though her little body was fractured in many different spots and she was on pain medication, she was still purring.  I am going to call the vet when they open.
